Bookmarks refer to Internet URLs which you
can revisit later without remembering their
The first bookmarks are early innovations of Mosaic browser. They were represented as plain list of URLs saved in a Bookmark menu. Needless to say, first users were highly restricted in managing bookmarks: they could not sort them; new websites were added at the bottom of the list. As a comparison, today’s web browsers and third-party bookmark managers provide users with a much wider range of features to manage bookmarks.
A brilliant idea of making Bookmarks enables you to easily revisit websites which you like. You can gather a list of necessary websites and build up a library of favorite and most useful findings.
You can add and manage bookmarks using your browser’s bookmark menu. Or, you can take use of third-party bookmark managers which add essential functions to manage your bookmarks easier, such as import/export capabilities with major browsers, searching features, advanced management, and others.
Here are several suggestions on how to manage bookmarks efficiently:
1.Managing bookmarks implies deciding on a set of categories which correspond to your major activities and interests. If you use a browser’s Bookmark menu, you might have noticed that it has a built-in list of categories. You should better create your own one in order to avoid cluttering your bookmarks by websites which you do not use.
2.If you have created a long list of categories and do not want to get lost in them, simply move the ones which you use more often to the top of list, and arrange the rest ones in an alphabetical order.
3.Subfolders. When the number of your bookmarks in a category rises beyond twenty, you should add subfolders. Keep in mind that by adding subfolders, you make it much easier and faster to find the needed bookmark.
4.Create a special category or a folder named Inbox. Here you need to add just created bookmarks which have not been classified yet. It helps not clutter your Bookmarks collection with temporary links.
5.All major web browsers allow adding separators. Use separators to divide different sets of bookmarks.
6.Each time when you save a bookmark, do not be lazy to add a short description and several keywords. Otherwise, you risk forgetting the purpose of this bookmark, and would waste more time on remembering it.
7.Once in a while, take some time to manage bookmarks and do a little housekeeping: delete out-of-date bookmarks, create new folders or subfolders, sort and organize new bookmarks. There is no reason to say, the more you neglect them, the more difficult it becomes to manage bookmarks in future.
