What do you all think of adding pages such as real articles to sites like Digg, Delicious, and StumbleUpon for SEO reasons?

Does little for SEO. But if your article or page is worthy of social bookmarking you will see benifits in the way of targeted traffic.

As meman said, they're more useful for traffic than SEO, but it all helps in the long run. e.g., the more people you have visit, the more likely you are to be linked to in, I don't know, a blog post, and links spread that way.

I've noticed that if I do a Google search on which pages link to my site via google. A search on "link:www.websitename.com" it turns up delicious pages.

Every article added to digg gets several pages generated with links to that domain. The same is true with stumbleupon...

Stumbleupon for example, which generates multiple links and in many cases many for popular pages has a pagerank of 7. We all know how valuable wikipedia links can be.

What about other wiki's? Are those links valuable?

I doubt anybody would dig reddit or bookmark your pagens from those lausy butons.

Having the page linked by all those services is good, but, honestly, those "bookmark me" links simply dont work.

If you have a dig acount and write suitable articles submit them yourself.
If you are waiting for ppl to submit your pages as new stories, well... that wont happen

They do work.
because if they didn't, social bookmarking services wouldn't exist.

del.icio.us have a new bookmarking widget

I wouldn't suggest doing that.
If you submit articles mostly from the same site it gets burried as "spam" by the community. And when enough articles from a domain are burried as spam digg automatically blocks that domain from being submitted in the future.
If you write articles that are good enough then someone will submit it.

With social marketing...

You can do a lot with social marketing from a sales view and an SEO view. We started on client up with MySpace as a test for SEO purposes. Using comments to add links to the site. Our incoming links increased a great amount and we saw a whole bunch of jumps in free search positioning because of it...this is only a test, but it's some great results we saw.

Also, say you have a site that sells baby clothing. There are a ton of groups out there for expecting/new moms. You could look to join these groups and post coupon codes, information and sales to the groups. This would help build loyalty and more sales.
