I am still wondering why all of my other websites get social bookmarks,but yola is like the slower kid in the family,slower and dysfunctional,but no one is suppose to notice...
It is just aggravating to to do social bookmarks,and all of the sites that I do are ranked
pretty high.My other website,
http://navoices.com/ is number 2 on Google,while this one is on page 4.This one will not let me do bookmarks as well as any of the other things that I have been able to do on the other site,who's birthday is the same day.Why is this?
I have tried time and time to work with this site,and do not get it.
I use this system on my bookmarking https://www.crork.com/index.htm
and get all the sites that I work with good ranking.
Why am I having trouble here?

Hello navoices,

This is not my area of specialty. We do have quite a few SEO knowledgeable users on this forum. I hope they might be able to chime in with their advice and suggestions. I'll also ask the SEO Team to have a look at this thread and see if they have any suggestions.

Ok,it is just aggravating to be paying more for this site,and being way back there
on Google,while our other site has been at number 2 for six months,and they both went online the same day.
I do bookmarking part time to make cash,and I just have not seen a system
that will not take any type of bookmark before.

Hello Navoices,

You should be able to add bookmarks to your site. Can you please tell me why you are unable to do so with https://www.crork.com/

If you are needing to add something to your site please let us know what it is and we can assist you with it.

Maybe someone from here should reach them.
I have had to get refunds from every order that I have purchased.
They say that out of all of the systems that they work with that this one
will not accept bookmarks,and they say that it is about Yola not them.

Hello navoices. I don't understand this concept and wondering if you could tell me about it. I have looked at the reference crork.com and still no wiser. I haven't had any experience of this process and I think that many may be in the same situation??.

It is not likely that sites in Yola can't use this facility if it's widely used. Just a little bit more clarification of the process may help us understand?

They do social bookmarks for sites.They are like the google plus or facebook likes,
they are good for ranking and respect of sites.
My other website,with the same birthday as my yola site,is ranked number 2
on Google.This yola page is on page 4,and will not take bookmarks.
I have been told by them that it is a yola problem,that there system works on every other site,but something about the way these pages are set up,none of the
bookmarks will work..
I make money doing social bookmarks for websites,but as I say,I personally before
now have never seen a site that would not take any bookmarks before this.
And I just renewed and am wondering if that was a wise decision with our site
fighting to stay ranked in comparison to its twin..

Yes you have said before that "they do social bookmarks" I understand the Facebook and Google Plus and have used various bookmarks for a number of years but never have seen those that you are referring to. It has me a bit confused.

Does it require that you place some code on your page? or is there something else that you or they use?

Sorry to labour on this but it would help if you can teach me.

Hello navoices,

It may also be helpful if you can post the site that is giving you this trouble. I'm not sure if we can address the issue but we can at least take a look.

That is the site.They told me not to give them any more Yola sites,for some reason,
there sites will not work on Yola.
I do not know why they work on every other site in existence but Yola..
They said that the problem was not to do with them,it is a Yola centered
problem...

Hi, navoices,

I'm not really sure why they would have a problem with Yola sites but without more information from them as to the problem, there is not much we can do. Just looking at their FAQ's, there is nothing unusual about our urls, titles, and descriptions. I don't know what else they would be looking at. Sorry not to be more helpful!

I do not get it or understand why it is so different but it is.
Our other site
http://navoices.com/
Is our other,non yola site that sits at number one on Google.

http://www.navoices.net/
Is our Yola site

Since we lost the forum that we had with Yola,all of our members go there.
We are number one for Narcotics Anonymous Recovery with our other site.
We are on page three with this one if you type in Narcotics Anonymous online chat.
.We use a free voice chat,so in reality,we probably would have been better off
putting everything at the other site since this just does not work very well
in the rankings online,and I am trying to do most of this alone,and no nothing
about SEO,or being a web master of any type.
All I can do is keep trying.Giving it another year,and if nothing changes we will go.
I know that all of those bookmarks are wanted because they increase value and
are highly rated bookmarks that seem to work every where but here...

Hi Na,

We've all searched for information on crork and their system but truly nothing that helps us has become apparent. Even in Google Searches asking for opinions and reviews I can't find them mentioned at all.

It is frustrating for you I understand. We can't work with thin air so at this stage we haven't been any help. We all certainly have tried.

maybe you can contact them and ask what Yola has to do to make this work for you? Yola may not be able to set it up but I think that they would then have something to work with.

I hope that you can get this worked out. Thanks for hanging in there with this conversation.
Looks like navoices is just trolling his site here.

My concern would be that sooner or later Google may view paid bookmark sites in the same light as link farms.

HI Na,

Finally I have found something generic.

""Paid Bookmarking sites get a share of the AdSense revenue from pages that bookmarkers create for them, and the people doing the bookmarking get a share too.

All they have to do is setup a website with an automatic system for people to post bookmarks, articles or whatever, and they make money!"
"

I can say from this that I can understand why Yola built paid for social bookmarking sites won't work. Yola doesn't allow access to that kind of input. Only one ID and password can edit or add stuff to a Yola site and that's the only way you can do it. There are exceptional instances such as AdSense but that is a really well tested and very secure system. The input has to be allowed and also it has to be in such a way that the builder understands.

There is lots of speculation on boards about Google not allowing this for the purposes of SEO but it hasn't seemed to have happened as yet. I think that I would agree with Kan Thai and be quite concerned that they will view this negatively and the outcome could be quite a slam.

Well,like I say,after Yola removed the forum,witch is where all of our
site action was,this is what we have.So no,we are not a trolling site,this
is just what happened to our forum based community,when our forum was removed.
I truly think that it sucks,but like I say,but that is the rules that they have.
Have an awesome Thanksgiving.

Hi navoices

Happy Thanksgiving to you!

Which forum have you added to your Yola site? We have a third-party forum called Tal-ki, which is integrated into Yola. However, we would not have taken the forum down purposely.

Can you tell us some more about the forum you had on your site and why it was taken down?
