    Digg will only give you good traffic if you provide top notch viral content, otherwise it is just a backlink and a poor one at that.

    go to digg, and search for your niche (keyword), if you see low amount of results, change the filtering to be without title. then for each url, if it didn't passed the 50-100 mark of comments (if you don't see such message saying 'go to the next.. comments' then it's good), copy past it into notepad. with the urls you just filtered and added to notepad, copy past them into a mass pagerank checking tool, then pick the highest pr url and comment on it and leave your site's url in the comment. true that you can't have anchor texts, but still. After you have done so, download a tool called Rank Checker by seobook.com, it's an addon for firefox. enter 'digg.com' into the website url, and enter your keyword in it as well, gather as much as related keywords you have and associate them with digg.com, hit run. then export it to .csv, after you done so, pick the 0-50 possition ranking for digg for the keywords, take those urls that are ranked and check if commenting is possible on them (there should be no message as 'go to the next..50 comments' otherwise commenting will be useless) and comment. try not to comment too much, i would say 3-4 pages are fine. now you have link juice :)

    oh, getting direct traffic from digg, usually most of the time it wont work, but you can try, it's better to use it as link juice ..

    don't submit too much link to digg, it will ban that domain and your account as well. Digg is good place for dofollow backlink and viral marketing if you have viral content.

    Wounded1987 - Thanks for the step by step.

    Just to confirm your approach: You're suggesting placing genre-specific comments on higher-value sites using two techniques:

    #1 Front Door - Identify posts starting with most Diggs
    #2 Back Door - Identify posts starting with Rank Checker

    Lastly, posts with 50+ comments are of lesser value because the value is diluted.

    I look forward to giving this a try. It looks promising.

    Thanks again.

    No, identify posts that their URL has something to do with your niche, those urls are of high strength, and then comment on them. Those urls might not rank for your keyword, but still they are related somehow because of the search you did to find them and good related content along side with a back link is always good thing. When you see a message of 'continue to.. comments' then it means that the comments beyond the first ones that you are able to see, couldn't be crawled by search engines, because SE can't access them, it's restricted access for them. and even when you look at cach page you wont be able to see far beyond the first 50-80 comments.

    @nshahidch, it's good to see something being digged, but you also need to make sure this digg of yours will be cralwed by SE. that's why we check for pagerank for our list, to exclude urls of diggs that has 0 PR or those that are not crawled by SE.
    many diggs came each day and not many got indexed.

    You need a lot of friends in Digg.com, they can help you to digg your story in order make your story be on the frontpage. Your site will get insane traffic!!

    @Wounded1987 - Thanks, I understood your point, but I think I was unclear. Furthermore, I appreciate your explanation of the 'continue to.. comments' component, I didn't understand that fully.

    I agree with most of the above. You can't just submit your site to digg and expect 1000 hits overnight.

    If you want the magic formula to quick, yet rather high quality traffic here it is:

    1. Make a site with a good design and quality content.
    2. Get twitter.
    3. Customise your background, add your link to the "web" section, and post a few tweets.
    4. Follow some people and I mean LOTS of people.
    5. Don't just tweet what ever you happen to be doing at the time. Tweet about useful stuff.
    6. If your site is a blog then announce each post on twitter.
    7. Unfollow those that don't follow you back within a few days.
    8. Follow More...

    Twitter sends me thousands of hits. It is the biggest provider of traffic to my site. I now have over 2000 followers.

    Update: BTW if you follow me (@JoelDrapper), I will follow you back.

    same happens with me, guess if the right people see it with the right friends it just gets passed around!

    try and submit more catchy stuff (i.e. aimed to go viral) and see how it goes. may cost more, but will be worth it in returns!

    You should gather a lot of friends on digg. This is the only way to fully use them. announce your post to your friends every time you make one.
