Is Digg a waste of time when it comes to Blog Promotion ?
Digg can be used to drive new blog readers to your blog site.
Digg is a social news network site that is the at the top of its niche. When you write a new blog post if you do not have friends available to digg your blog post,then submit it yourself. It might never make it to the front page of digg but most posts never will anyway and it is still a good backlink to your site. Digg is said to keep track of sites that just digg there own posts and penalize the sites, but if you are like me you really dont care. If you are striving to make it to the front page of digg good luck on that endeavor as it probaly wont happen.
And if it does happen then it will give you a one or 2 day spike in traffic but that is it. The way to get readers from digg is to write good content and have it submitted constantly. You will increase your readership some but dont expect digg to be the key to you growing your blog. Every year there is a new social network site that comes out that is a must for blog promotion. Twitter is the new kid on the block and I would put much more time into it this year than digg. I would still submit my stories to digg but dont waste to much time on digg as it is not the power site it once was with driving traffic to sites. Twitter is the winner in blog promotion, digg is how can I say it nice ? As my daughter would say Digg is so last year.
