Can You Digg It? What Digg Does For Your Website Traffic

April 29, 2010 by Josh

social media digg a Can You Digg It? What Digg Does For Your Website TrafficHey everyone, Josh here from the Internet Beacon. The Internet Beacon is a Search Engine Optimization (SEO) firm located in Maryland. What we do, SEO, is a form of Internet Marketing. Much like traditional advertising, SEO is all about getting your name out there. In this case, we’re working to get your website in front of customers through search engines like Google and Yahoo. For more information, check out our SEO Answers pageSEO Glossary, and our blog posts on SEO. This week we’re going to talk about popular social news site, Digg.

If you’re not familiar with, allow me to give you a quick overview. In essence, Digg is like an improved version of Delicious, a bookmark sharing website. However, Digg is much more interactive than Delicious and much more popular. Users submit news articles, video, pictures, and more to Digg and those items are then posted on the main website. When a user thinks something is worth sharing, they simply “Digg It” and add a vote for it. The higher the votes, the more likely the link ends up on the main page.

The way this can benefit you is simple. First, you need to add valuable content to your website. This sounds more difficult than it is. For example, rather than doing a newsletter to clients, have a blog. Then, you can link your blog, if it fits in an appropriate Digg category. You’ll need a account, which is free. Once you submit the link, distribute it around the Internet to your contacts and have them vote it up. Other random users might also see it and chime in.

Once you’ve submitted the article to Digg and have begun spreading the word, there is not much more to do on your end. Every vote you receive will likely translate to one or more page views for your website. Therefore, it is important that what you are providing is quality stuff. The danger of the Internet is that if something is of shoddy design, people are quick to criticize. Bear this in mind when sharing your content with the world.

That’s all for this week. We’ll see you back next week.
