They are pretty much junk links. Not something I would try to build.

If they bring you worthwhile direct traffic, great. For SEO, they are low quality, useless links.

I wouldn't call them junk. Pinterest, Reddit, etc.. are bookmarking sites. By their self they're useless, but in collaboration with PBNs and other quality links, Google likes it a lot. I know, this strategy is working great. for me. Tons of social signals and bookmarks and a few high quality links. Simple SEO that works.

I also incorporate some seo'd videos as well. Public Blogging Network links still working great for YouTube if done right ;) But I also submit to over 40 different video sites. Also pay for some imbeds as well.

Social bookmarking is one of the effective way to increase ranking, but make sure whether you have used quality content or not. It is going to be effective only when you use quality content and use only High Pr sites while doing so you will get better result.

Social bookmarking hurt your website if you submit your website link on low quality or not index social bookmarking websites and if you create so many bookmarking links in a day. The best way to work on bookmarking site is to submit fresh contact on high PR, good indexed and 5 to 10 websites only in a day.

Social bookmarking always give results to me. It will help to increase your website's ranking on Google and it will give you traffic as well. But dont try to over do that because it can also hurt your website. So always be careful whenever you're doing social bookmarking

Social Bookmarking is one of the best off page techniques for building backlinks. But, try to find the right and high PR, DA/PA sites for building links, because obtaining backlinks from low quality/spammy sites will definitely affect your keyword rankings and SEO.

Several things to consider before you go for social bookmarking. Firstly, make sure that the original content that you are doing bookmarking for is of good quality and not some cheap spun material. Secondly, ensure that you post on high PR sites that also provide do-follow links (to get good high PR do-follow sites Google the term or visit vmoptions). Thirdly, construct the title of your sbm with the keyword and make it interesting and not just some cheap publicity, and finally put the keyword in the description area too.

SBMs done in this manner can surely help increase rank.

Not all that accurate. Social Media does not play a significant role in Rankings. Social Velocity, the speed it's being shared sends the right signal to Google. Posting links on social media does not just get you "ranked".

Website referral traffic, may be a great number to show but if it's not converting what is it worth? Depending on your industry social media is only for brand awareness and not to capture leads or to convert people.

If you are doing social bookmarking in bulk and with old methods in hundreds of websites, it's spam. But if you are doing social bookmarking to spread quality content on quality SB sites, its' good. Use only high authority websites to do Social Bookmarking. Also don't try to overuse the targeted keywords. Make it natural. Make friends and followers on social bookmarking sites and share your content with them. By this way it can be helpful in bringing referral traffic to your website.

Social Bookmarking is still a strong source for building links. When you submit the bookmarks into different sites, it is counted in search results that depends how fine you create the bookmarks. This is yet another source of visitors to your site.
