I was wondering if getting your page bookmarked helps in search engine rankings?

Are you asking about bookmarking sites like del.icio.us or StumbleUpon? I believe they both put nofollow on their links, so Google won't give you any credit for those bookmarks (although Yahoo probably would). The idea with sites like these is to call other people's attention to the pages you bookmark. That can bring you direct traffic, and the possibility that other people will link to you elsewhere.

Or if you're talking about bookmarking or saving sites to your favs in your browser, this cannot possibly have any effect. The search engines can't see such info (privacy issues) for this type of bookmarking.

Indirectly.

Bookmarking can help your page's/post's exposure to people searching or browsing these services for interesting content.

If they then like what they see and link to you... that's a link and that's good SEO for you!

The best-case scenario is that you get enough bookmarks from a delicious, a reddit or similar to appear on their "popular" page/s.

This is a known way to -- for a short time -- drive a lot of qualified traffic to your site.

In the end, the links you get will depend on the quality of the content, of course... as will the likelihood of you getting all those bookmarks in the first place!!

Ofcourse they will give you better exposure in link building point of view but, but if bookmarking site uses nofolow attribute then it is not advantageous.

Yes social bookmarking helps in getting good traffic. Generally it has been seen that sometimes server got crashed due to huge traffic. So I must say social bookmarking helps in getting traffic.

Do you think that if our site is linked for "a lot of user" from del.icio.us, although these links have nofollow, can google increase the trust rank of our site?

i don't think so. del.icio.us uses do-follow which have no merit with the rankings. this could help driving out more traffic, unless of course, those users are just from your own website promotion/advertising team.

but of course, we can never be too sure. google algorithms are just so complicated! but if google is not your concern, social bookmarking sites with no follow would definitely help with your rankings in yahoo and/or msn.

A correction...

The search engines have no way to see how much traffic a site receives from all channels, especially not from bookmarks, so rankings are not affected by overall traffic. Popularity yes, traffic no.
