If you’ve been into Internet marketing even for a while now, you know exactly how many different traffic sources you can tap into to get visitors coming into your site. When we talk about traffic, we are, of course, talking about the very seriously targeted traffic that is actually interested in what you have to offer. Digg, the social media network, is a perfect place to get traffic because the users who are active there are always on the lookout for valuable information and new websites to read. This article is going to look into a few of the things that people can do to better leverage the power of Digg for traffic for your own website.
If you submit content to Digg don’t forget to use your primary keywords. Put your keywords in the title as well as in the body of your content because doing that helps you get the attention of Digg’s users as well as raise your work within the pages of the search engines. Don’t try to stuff the keyword unnecessarily into your content; simply including it once in the major portions of your content is enough.
Before you hit submit, make sure that what you’re reading is the original source. Out of all of the rules that you need to follow and remember as you use Digg, this is perhaps the most important. Here’s an example: when you submit one of your blog posts to Digg make sure you submit the URL of the actual post and not just the URL of your main page. This is one of the key points that you should keep in mind when submitting any type of content to Digg.
Last but not the least; it’s important that you create friends on Digg, just like you do on Twitter. When you make your content Digg worthy it is your friends who will help you the most by pushing your content up on the pages. Take a casual approach in creating friendships and try to be as helpful as you can be. Digg is a very social place so being a loner won’t be helpful. The more friendships you can create, the bigger your chance will be of getting your work noticed and Dugg. So your primary goal here needs to be forming friendships and creating contacts. This particular gesture will garner you lots of good will and help you gain a massive amount of leverage from your contacts. All in all, as long as you continue to create quality content, you can get a bunch of exposure from Digg–after all, the system isn’t going anywhere. The true essence of getting Digg to work for you is to focus on your content and make it so amazing that people can’t help but pay attention to it. Try to keep your approach unique and give the users of Digg something that they will find interesting.
