Sometimes when you surf online, you come across a site you like, so you bookmark it. Once you have bookmarked it, you can log on to any computer around the world with internet access and retrieve the URLs of those sites!
But social bookmark sites can do much more than that. Let’s take a look at an example of such a site –
Digg.com is a very popular community that users visit daily to share content Diggvideo, and post new site discoveries. You can simply submit your website to Digg, and with the frequency of crawling and popularity within sites like Google and other search engines, it’s likely going to index your site quite easily.
You can Digg your own websites, blogs, and articles. Then the other Digg users can vote your links up or down, whether they like it or not.
If you have a really interesting article for example and others like it, your Digg can move up the list and you’ll get more traffic.
Tip: A good rule to follow is to Digg 50% your own items and 50% other people’s items. You don’t have to do this, this is just a rule to make sure you stay safe. This will keep your account at Digg untouched and not make you look like a spammer.
Digg won’t bring in massive amounts of traffic unless your Digg gets really popular…so there’s only one thing to do: Make yourself popular!
