An Experience with DIGG

Feb 16, 2008 by     12 Comments    Posted under: Review

I hate Digg I just want to inform you that I hate DIGG. Why?  It is because none of my post ever goes to DIGG front Page. Upon analyzing how does it happen to me, It gives me an idea to join Social Media Mega Project  sponsored by www.inspirationbit.com.

And here is my experience with Digg .

  1. I don’t have any other contact that uses Digg. Maybe I have, but I did not care about it.
  2. I don’t know the proper category of my post where I can include the post that I am digging.
  3. I believe that there are lots of Digg submission in a day that made my site un noticed and usually got buried.
  4. I believed that Digg is only for power users.
  5. I believed that Digg is just a 1 day traffic and It is usually not worth to be dugg since it is not converting to money.
  6. I am not studying the style of some successful Digg user.
  7. I am not searching for information and tips for Digg

I don’t know if that experience will qualify me for an entry but at least I have told you what I felt about Digg. Some says that Digg is dying so why will I push myself to social website that is dying. I will just learn more SEO technique and I can have more targeted visitors.

So If you don’t want to be in Digg Front Page just follow my footstep and for sure you will not go that far.

If you have some information or disagreement just free to shout it out. 🙂 or if you feel this needs to be Digg just press below and that might change my belief over DIGG.

  • @ Barbara Ling (aka Owlbert),

    You have a point in there.. But I don’t have any luck in DIGG 🙂

    Dexter’s last blog post..TopBlogs.com.ph : Monitoring Philippine Top Blogs

  • I think it’s all about the types of articles that are submitted. Some articles do much better in Stumbleupon, others in Digg, others in Twitter, etc.

    Sure is different from ‘ye ‘ole Usenet…. 🙂

  • @ nella,

    How I wish I am one of them .. Who goes in the front.. BUT Black Hat.. I am not practicing it here.. IMO….I don’t think one should engage to Black hat just to be in top..

  • it is still not impossible. though some sites are really unique in content thats why they are in front page, you can still resort to black hat if you want that front page link one way or another. 🙂

  • @ Kanak Bhandari,

    Digg has not even send 20 visitors at this site. MAximum is about 5 to 10 but stumble upon is constantly giving about 200 to 300 in just 1 stumble..

  • I gave up with digg. Its just that if you get your article submitted by a digg power user, there are chances that it might come up to the front page, no matter even if the article contains just a video. 😀 ..
    I hate digg as well, With my last attempt to get my article dugg, I am sure that i am not gonna try even one more time.
    You can use stumbleupon. With a single stumble it can give you 100 to 200 visitors 😀

  • @ inspirationbit

    Thanks for accepting this entry. I am glad to be part of your writing project.

    @ Rakshit,

    At least I am glad to know that I am not the only one who hates digg 🙂

  • You know what, when I first started blogging, I loved Digg as much as anything. Reason???
    I had a misconception that it helps in getting huge traffic. But later, my friend told me that it is possible only when your article appear at the front page- that is very difficult.

    So, from then onwards, I hate Digg as well.

  • your entry is certainly qualified and accepted. Thanks for participating in this social media project. That was the exact purpose of this project – to find out what people think about various social networking sites, which one they benefit from and would recommend to others, and which ones they don’t find that useful.
