    Depends if those 30 diggs will get you to the front page. But traffic varies A LOT from one story to another.

    Not really, my last front page got me only about 2k. But it sure can go up much more than that.

    Digg is really overrated. If you're planning on posting garbage spam like a lot of people do (hoping to get hits, haha, idiots) then 30 Diggs would reflect that, and you'll get sh*t-canned fast and buried. If however you have a worthy story then you will be promoted to the front page, if you get a lot Diggs then more diggs will come and you'll be happy.

    how does 30 diggs get you to the front page? i see that is random some diggs are like whabam 800 diggs and another on the front page is like 200, why does it vary so much

    this is what confuses me about digg

    It seems like the front page stories move down the chain much faster than they used to, which means you stay on the front page for shorter time periods. On the other hand, the number of visitors increases with time.

    All in all, I think story exposure on the front page is getting saturated.

    Digg is overrated for the type of traffic you get, from a userbase that is 80% firefox/ad blocking, that are militant devotee to Digg. Everyone else uses other sites, Digg is not all that, it's mostly geeks.

    They use an algorthym of some sort and it has to do with how quickly those diggs are received. I have heard it also has something to do with the past ranking of the person that submits the story and the rankings of those digging it.

    I think it would also depend on how long your site is near the top and how much mass appeal your link has. Obviously, the easier it is for those scrolling digg to find you, the more potential visits you'll receive.

    I think most digg users do venture past the first page. I usually scroll through at least the first 2 or 3 if i have time.

    The traffic for me would be secondary to the hundreds of links you would get.

    Obviously it has alot to do with whether those browsing the first page are interested :rolleyes:

    You can get 2k-10k depends on whether your article is of interest to a great percentage of those viewing the first page of digg.
