Jon Henshaw of Raven SEO Tools fame, has piled up some very interesting tips on how you can get the most out of your bookmarked links.

Here are his tips on how one can create a Dofollow Link on Delicious:

  1. Try to be the first person to bookmark the link. That way you'll be able to control the anchor text that's used in the link.
  2. After you bookmark the link, have at least one other Delicious user bookmark it. Have that account use similar tags, but don't completely copy each other. Also, it's probably wise to mix up accounts that bookmark the same links, and you may want to consider having the other account use a proxy server or different IP.
  3. Although step two is all you need to do, it may be helpful to actually build a few links to the "Everyone's Bookmarks for" page, just to make sure it gets spidered, referenced and rated by search engines.

“After doing some investigation, it appears that Delicious intentionally removed the nofollow attribute from the “Everyone’s Bookmarks for” page. If a unique link has been bookmarked by more than one person, this page becomes accessible via a link on every account that bookmarked it. The link then has two dofollow links on it, one of which uses actual anchor text instead of the URL.”

Try them!
