    Bad, i heard they dont click on ads and just waste bandwidth.. plus its hard to get them to come back unless u got a gem in your hands. Thats what i deduct from my reading about it.

    Yes,thats the exact thing i have heard about them too.But you will get many backlinks from many other sites.It would help you in the link development in the long run.

    Digg users are adsense blind! It's good to use digg for one time exposure but after that, forget about it.

    traffic is good, but those traffic doesn't convert to click.
    However, if you have really good story, expect tons of link to your page, which IMO is more valuable than traffic it brings

    I've had sites make it to the first page of digg. Out of 30,000 uniques, about 500 of them lingered onto pages other than the page that was dugg. If I remember correctly, I received ~12,000 backlinks too.

    It's not bad quality traffic. I imagine more of them would have lingered if I had more content, it was a page that I never expected to get dugg.

    I hope that information is helpful to someone :)

    I get a little traffic only from digg.
    BTW - who are the main visitors to digg, are they webmasters this days?

    Digg users are in the mood of just getting what they came for and then they leave imediately.

    I have however gain some nice backlinks from some users that found my site interesting. Much more value for the long term:)

    I've just written a whole report about Digg Traffic.

    It's 15 pages long and is available as a bonus with my E-Book, "The Web2.0 Effect".

    Link is in Sig
