What do I Digg? I dig Digg. And, I Digg my posts. I’m my harshest critic, but I’m also well aware that some of my posts are worth Digg-ing. By the way, these aren’t typos. Read on.
To Digg your own posts gives them more exposure. If your posts appear to include valuable information, Digg may send more traffic to your site. According to my Google Analytics, in the last month, Digg accounted for 19.5% of my traffic. I can dig that!
To Digg your own post is simple. Click on the post you want to Digg. Click on your Digg “chicklet”, and follow Digg’s instructions. You don’t have a Digg chicklet? Add the Notable Plugin to your blog. Make sure you check the “Digg” box.
When you get to Digg’s site, at Digg.com, enter the requested information, Digg will say, “Submit Story” You may get a message that reads “! We think your story may be a duplicate of one that was submitted by someone else”. Digg then lists similar articles. Some of these may be on track with what you wrote, but unless someone has plagiarized your work, your article should be an original. Continue on to the bottom of the page, and click, “Continue,Submit”. You just “Digg – ed” your post. You will see that you now have “1” Digg. If other people “Digg” your post, that number will increase. If you go to your “profile” at Digg.com, you’ll see all of the articles you’ve “Digg – ed”, or I guess that would be, “Dugg”.
I dig the fact that this post is very, very, very, keyword dense. I think I’ll Digg It!
