Onlywire has been around for quite a few years now, and can be an easy alternative to other social bookmarking software or simply cutting out the service by a provider. Everything is easy to follow and understand when adding your bookmark.
I want to go more into the details of the service to let you know what you can expect with this Onlywire Review.
Onlywire is pretty straightforward and its only purpose is to get out social bookmarks for a new post or any particular URL that you want to get indexed and promote quickly. In my case I always run new posts through Onlywire and can find them in Google much quicker then simply adding a new post and waiting for Google to find it.
The main dashboard of Onlywire will show you any pending bookmarks that still have yet to finish, from here you will also have the options to see your submission history and it will notify you if there are any errors on your social bookmarking account. They will also list your current plan and how many bookmarks you have left since this service is based off a submission plan.
From there if you are new to Onlywire you will first want to setup the services before you do anything. The services are basically the accounts that will be used to bookmark your new content. In order to utilize Onlywire you must first do this there is no way around it, but if you have accounts already on some of these sites you can input the logins.
The best way to go about this is to simply click through to each service and make an account then confirm it. You will then input your login and password which Onlywire will save for later use. You can pick and choose specific services or simply go through all of them and utilize every social bookmarking site. While it is time consuming, this can be a putoff for some people but it is just a one time thing. I think Onlywire intention here was to avoid having something that signed up accounts with the click of a button which i think people may abuse to get tons of accounts so I understand where they went with this feature.
Once your accounts are setup you then can begin to bookmark content, from the post bookmark page everything is straightforward where you simply add the URL, title and description of the bookmark you can also opt to use a url shortener. Also ensure to fill out the tags and relevant category for your bookmark. Lastly you have the option to select which sites you want to bookmark to, only the sites which you have accounts saved will show here. If you want to take it a step further you can utilize the advanced post feature, this can be used for added diversity in your bookmarking. An example would be is if you want to use different titles, url or descriptions for each bookmarking site.
Another good feature I forgot to mention are the browser plugins and wordpress plugins, so if you browse to a site with the click of a button you can open a prompt to start bookmaking that page you are on. With the wordpress plugin any new posts you can post them to the bookmarking sites easier.
Once you click to post it does not take a long time to get all of the bookmarks it is usually within 10 minutes. You can check afterwards to see if there were any issues and it will notify you of the error. Besides that there are a few other tools but I will just mention the most useful one which is analytics. If you setup the tracking analytic it is a great way to see which content proved to get the most clicks and time on site. They will integrate this with your google analytics account.
Overall there isnt too much else to say about this service, it gets the bookmarking job done with ease. My only gripe is there are not a ton of bookmarking sites to bookmark to, but if your goal is to get your content on only the more popular sites then Onlywire might be good for you. The other bookmarking software like Social Bookmarking demon will provide you with many more sites and in the long run cheaper, but everyone has their own preferences. You can try out the Onlywire with a free 100 submissions.
