Many people can have different opinion but if you ask me this is one of the strategies that is obsolete to a good extent. There are few good bookmarking websites like Reddit, Stumbleupon and more but they are probably there to give you some extra traffic. I mean stumbleupon can sure give you good amount of traffic but what that traffic actually worth? Go to analytics and you will find that the bounce rate of stumbleupon is sometime as high as 95%. Whats the use of a traffic that came in with the intention to bounce without spending a minute on your website. Reddit give you good traffic if your content have viral ingredients, if not there is no point of you submitting your story on reddit. Also, there are some worthless (I would say dangerous) social bookmarking site that get links from all bad neighborhood and they sometimes have the ability to ruin your website reputation in search engine and you can see a decline in rankings after that.
