Digg Helps Expand Online Exposure
Posted on by Service Analysis
Every website that revolves around human interaction requires a friendly environment with an easy-to-access content and contribution options. Digg is a website that has set the bar for content distribution networks in numerous niche fields, such as main stream and alternative news. However Digg is designed from two perspectives and it has been able to meet both sets of demands fairly equally.
Who Uses Digg?
Everyone – Digg provides endless content that is submitted by its users and then voted on from within the network. These votes determine the submitted contents popularity and position within Diggs category based page listings (similar to Google search engine results). The end result being the freshest and most up-to-date content that is easily accessible to any view that merely happens to pass by the home page. This design has led to a very successful social network with massive amounts of users, all interacting with different Digg submissions.
Webmasters – Digg is extremely well known website amount webmasters for being a very powerful traffic provider, which can only help a website. The network also provides backlinks through submitted content, and considering the source the backlinks are quite valuable. Keep in mind that a submission will only flourish if it is worthy of the front page, take a look at the current front page stories to get an idea of the topic, titles, descriptions, pictures, etc. Quality is king when it comes to a successful Digg submission within the massive network.
Content For Discussion
A tip to making a good Digg submission, which I feel many users forget, is its discuss-ability factor. You don’t want to submit a story that fails to promote user commentary or controversy. Getting users to comment and talk about your content is half of the battle when it comes to submitting content to Digg.
Once you begin to receive comments on your content you can almost assume that traffic will be directed your way within a short time period. There have been Google Analytics recordings of members receiving well over 5,000 hits from a single story, this plus the backlinks makes this a very enticing network for webmasters to participate in.
