    All Digg type social sites are so saturated with spam and junk from so many webmasters I just do not find them valuable at all sorry just my opinion.

    From what I have heard Digg can be a great way to market your site or a terrible way. The most important way to succeed with Digg marketing is to network and send your Digg link to all your twitter followers, facebook friends, and viewers of your site

    You really need to slow down if you don't want your account canceled. It's usually not good for traffic but it holds a little weight with Google.

    To get list at the home page, the content is important but the most important is your network. You need to make a lot of friend in digg, then only you will get tons of digg

    Digg can get your sites indexed and build some links to it for SEO purposes, but if you want to get on the front page, you need friends who will digg your story up and make comments and conversation about it started.

    Get about 120 friends who will digg your story within two hours of your submission. Make sure that at least half of them "favorite" the story. Once it gets in the top stories in the "Upcoming section" then other Diggers will digg your story. Then you have a chance of hitting the front page.

    Make sure your story is interesting.

    No spelling, grammar errors, because diggers will bury the sh*t out of your story if you make these mistakes.

    Do not submit anything that is anti-Obama, anti-Ron Paul, anti-marijuana, anti-tech, anti-cats, anti-dogs, anti-any other animal.

    Make sure everything is on one page, diggers hate clicking through multiple pages.

    I think you will only benefit greatly when your site hits the front page.

    If not, you will still get the odd visitor here or there over a period of time if you do advertise your site there.

    First of all,Digg is good for indexing your site...

    Now...As for long-term benefits,opinions vary...

    IMHO
    IF you hit the front-page prepare to see your server go down...
    How many of those visitors will come back?
    If your site's content is not valuable,few to none...
    If your digg submission is completely irrelevant to your site's content,few to none...

    There are always exceptions...However,from my experience,that is what happens to most people...

    NOTE:If you REALLY need to hit the front-page,someone with a strong account (with lots of friends) has much more chances than someone that just signed-up to submit his site's article....

    Haha, very true. Except I've never heard of anything anti-tech (unless it's Amish, but they wouldn't be on Digg anyway), or anti-cat or dog, lol.

    Using Digg for marketing your website might be a good idea but how to do that is the real stuff ? As an individual, you could post number of links to digg but to take your posts to the front page you need others help.

    Unless, you have a network of peoples who help each other you can't come up to the front page. On the other way, the post you are publishing should be the real hot news so that naturally i may move to the front page. The benefits of reaching the front page is huge amount of traffic to your web site. But statistics says, traffic from social bookmark sites converts (earnings) very less.

    I would say, if you don't have a network, just put your posts to gain some links to your site.

    I get some visitors from Digg. I have no friends, and I've never had something on the first page but still have traffic.

    Digg says for me "Your URL is redirecting too much for our tastes" so I wouldn't know.

    That's odd. Are you using a fake/redirecting URL? Like URL shorteners or anything?

    yeah, i agree with one of the posts above saying that DIGG is more about networking. You could submit the most interesting & amazing submission but no one will see it unless you get a group of people to digg it. So you either need to build that network of friends or you need someone that is already respected in that community.

    my understanding is that digg can get you lots of traffic but it might not be relevant traffic to what you're doing on your site. so keep that in mind too

    If you can write good quality headlines you can make digg work for you.

    from what I've experienced- they get indexed fast - and are ranked high in the SERPs- then they sink like a rock. They are on my backlink list.
