Digg! Marketing Giant

For Webmasters and Bloggers, not knowing about Digg is like not knowing how to breathe. Digg is a place where you submit news, articles, videos and other media content. Then, readers of Digg can Digg your submission up or down! If enough people find your submission interesting you might even make the front page of Digg. If you do, get your servers ready, because you will get a ton of traffic!

Once you have created your blog or website, the next thing you need to focus on is bringing in visitors. But with hundreds or even thousands of websites on the same topic as yours, readers will have a hard time finding you unless you make a consistent effort to market your blog or website. This is where Digg comes in. You may have seen Digg icons all around the Internet, and even Dugg articles that you found interesting on a blog. What you might not know is that Digg is a powerful marketing tool, which if used correctly, should automatically bring hundreds, if not thousands of visitors to your Blog.

Start with a niche you feel passionate about. If your blog covers sports opinions, focus on submitting articles to the Sports section of Digg.  If you submit one article a day 7 days a week, you should easily get your first 100 visitors. You have to remember, however, that consistency is key to marketing your blog. You have to submit an article everyday, in order to get your visitors.
In the end, it all comes down to being consistent and passionate about your Blog. If the passion dies, the readership falls. If readership falls, the passion dies. Therefore, try to write out a plan, which you can follow that will guide you at building your readership on the Internet.

    You should probably add that a lot of Diggs go basically unnoticed, and might only bring in 5-20 visitors. That is over 100 per week if you go on the high end of that, but still. Digg can be unreliable as a source of traffic. Sometimes it will flood your server, and sometimes it will hardly make a dent in your bandwidth.

    Well, it worked for me:)

    It has brought in 100 visitors just by posting this article on Digg. It’s about having options.

    Just be careful not to use and IP than is banned or your Digg account gets banned also regardless.

    I don’t know. I have submitted at least 5 articles and got quite a few views.
