Recently I found myself in a quandary. I had ventured to SocialMonkee.com, an instant link building solution, and was reading how their program worked for submitting bookmarks. Part of the exercise was to view a video about how to work their spinner for creating multiple backlinks..
Now I don’t advocate necessarily using spinners, but there may be an Internet tip here for you if you intend to watch the instructional video on SocialMonkee.com. At this site you have a choice of joining for free and being able to submit a URL for distribution to 25 social book-marking sites per day. If you choose to get a premium membership, there is a fee which allows you to send a bookmark to 100 sites.
As you run the video, you will hear helpful advice from Colin Klinkert. Between the squiggly brackets for alternative words for spinning, there are dividers which separate the terms. These dividers are vertical lines. Note: vertical bars (also called verti-bar, vbar, stick, vertical line, vertical slash, or bar, poley, think colon, polon or divider line), not forward backslashes or the like. You need to use something like this | .
Now where on earth is that key? Thank goodness for Google.com. If you use “divider symbol on keyboard” for a search term, you will find out that the keys for this bar are not the same, necessarily, in the United Kingdom and North America. The United Kingdom uses two keys: a broken bar and a vertical bar. North America uses a broken bar on the keyboard nestled between the backspace key and the enter key. Even though it looks like a broken bar, when shifted, it comes out a vertical bar ( | ). This is the key you use to separate terms in the spinner.

Hope this saves someone some time.
