Social Bookmarking as a Search Engine
Increasingly, social bookmarking websites are being used as a surrogate search engine. Yahoo, Google, and the other search engines are extremely useful tools, but they can also bring back so many websites that it becomes a real chore to wade through the useless sites to find that needle in the haystack.The reason for this is the basic way that most search engines operate. They "crawl" the web by having a computer scan websites and pick out keywords to index for a search. The computer then catalogues the links on the page and moves to those web pages to index and catalogue, and so on, and so forth until they've "crawled" the web.

RE: Social Bookmarking as a Search Engine

You can also see how many people find your site interesting enough to add to their bookmarks, which can give you a basic idea of the site is really useful - something the computer could not do.
