    How to Get Traffic to My Website With Digg

    Digg can be an excellent source of traffic to your website. This is because the online social news website has a relatively high rating on Alexa, a high Google PageRank, and decent Domain Authority. It is also considered more amenable to marketing than its rivals.

    Some of the ways you can get traffic to your website using Digg include the following:

    Develop content that will appeal to Digg users
    Not all kinds of content will be appreciated on Digg. The best way to find out what is likely to be a hit is to conduct some research on the website. That way you will be able to discover the kind of content that manages to makes its way to the main page of Digg as well the various topic pages. This is the kind of content you should focus on creating, as only then will you stand a chance of benefitting from getting web traffic from Digg.

    Make your content stand out
    To increase the chances of your article getting noticed, it is important to craft the title and description carefully. The headline is the first thing that a reader sees and if it’s interesting enough they will most likely go on to read the body of the article. The headlines that tend to be successful on Digg usually have an element of sensationalism in them. They can also be controversial or humorous.

    Give old content a fresh take
    While it is harder to come up with content that is new altogether, you can give your already existing content a fresh makeover by adding humor, new angles and trying to be different from the rest of the pack. This way it becomes engaging to read and, therefore, more ‘Diggable’. But for it to work, you must be prepared to push the boundaries and to think outside the square.

    Be careful when submitting
    Digg etiquette states that users will be penalized for submitting their web content with too high a frequency. Self-promotion in the Digg community is frowned upon. Therefore to increase your chances of your web content being featured on Digg’s main page, avoid being the first one to ‘digg’ your content. Instead, let someone else be the first.

    Another point to remember is that to weed out spammers, Digg singles out users who only Digg one article and then leave. The best way to avoid this is to ensure that those you have requested to Digg your article also submit other articles as well. Digg as a social bookmarking site has various ways of detecting those who are trying to game the system and this is just one way. So play by the rules to avoid getting penalized.

    Having done all the above, it is important to keep in mind that Digg is social in nature. The more actively you participate in the community by commenting, voting and following others, the more the followers you will get in return. And the more the followers that you have, the more likely they will vote for your submissions too.

    Digg is very strict so don't always submit your own blog post. If you want to Digg your post, ask a friend or someone you know to help you submit it to Digg. If you do ask your friend to Digg your post, ask them to Digg URLs from other websites as well along with your blog post so that the moderator won't think that you are trying to spam.

    Digg is one of the top most social book marking site that can help drive traffic to your blog. However, there are few useful tips to efficiently use Digg and enhance traffic to your blog.
    1. Digg the Unique content
    2. Don't Digg your own blogposts
    3. Digg several articles at a time
    4. Use an attrative title and description in your Diggs
    5. Be an active Digg user
    In short more Diggs for your own blog posts equal more traffic to your blog.

    I lost hopes on them, when they closed the company and removed all of the old accounts. My account was PR2 or 3 before closing the Digg site and got huge traffic with them. I made good amount from Digg at that time and traffic was too delivered by Digg.
    I lost hopes on Social bookmarking because they have to close the doors when it becomes big, else I could had joined again.

    Do you all getting traffic at the moment even your post stayed in the upcoming news.

    You must post something newsworthy if you want it to get dugg by many other people. If your post get dugg many times on Digg, it will drive a lot of referral traffic to your website. Even if no one digg your story, it will still get indexed by the search engine.

    It's unlikely that using Digg will have a massive impact on your search ranking, if anything at all. The purpose behind social bookmarking sites is to allow users to share links they like, not to allow site owners to push more adverts on the world, and they're smart to those tactics.

    If you're Digging your own site, it's pretty near certain that those links are going to be nofollowed, so search engines will ignore them. The value of Digg is to get real people following the links ... but how to do that, that's a big question. Put yourself in the position of a random surfer. What would encourage you to visit your website?
