5 Ways To Get Big On Digg

For new users and the less technologically inclined Digg can be a whole new and scary world, but behind all the secret workings and Digg gangs are simple and easy ways to get big on Digg.

  1. Look at other social bookmarking sites
  2. Digg isn’t the only fish in the sea, Reddit, Slashdot and StumbleUpon are all great ways to find and share new content. By looking at the front pages on these other sites you can find stories you know people will like without having to search yourself. Another great service is 73git, it basically looks at social bookmarking services and finds whats popular now that hasn’t already been submitted to Digg, it even includes an add to Digg button. Be careful however when looking at other social bookmarking sites to find content, things that have been on the front pages of these services for a long time may have already been submitted by someone else and there is nothing Diggers hate more than multiple submissions.

  3. Look at blogs daily for new content
  4. Some sites seam to be Digg magnet, Cracked.com, Engadget, Gizmodo, Techcrunch and Boing Boing in particular seam to attract Digg’s and surfing these sites for a few minutes each looking for new posts that no one has Dugg yet is a good idea. Remember thought that sometimes the tech blogs will all blog the same topic at once which will be repetitive for the nice Digg users out there, and they still hate repetitive.

  5. Use Technorati
  6. Technorati is a great tool for people looking for things happening now. Especially if you look at the Technorati what’s popular list. You can use the list to browse through the number one search term for today and find posts that discuss the topic. Watch out thought, it seams the Technorati search engine isn’t that great and a few of the top search terms will end in results that are completely unrelated.

  7. Watch the top Digg users
  8. The Digg top users from the Top 100 Users list know what they’re doing, if all else fails watch what they Digg and when and see what sites they frequent, after awhile you could be one step ahead and have one of them Digging your story.

  9. Make Friends, Be Friendly
  10. The main aspect of Digg is that it’s social bookmarking, if someone is submitting stories you like or Digging and commenting your stories go ahead and add them as a friend. Making friends and finding users that like the kind of things you submit are important to your success on Digg and even the top users need to use their friends to help get their stories out sometimes. And if a user doesn’t add you as a mutual friend after you’ve added them don’t get discouraged, simply remove them and go friend someone else. Finding people that like the same things as you is the purpose of the “Who Dugg or Blogged It?” link.

  1. Friends friends friends….that’s the key. Often it’s against the T&C’s to trade stumbles or pay for diggs etc. but you CAN send links to your friends.
