Incoming traffic is important no matter where it comes from, especially if it comes from Digg.com.
When a reader to your website / blog submits one of your stories to Digg and the process is repeated multiple times thereafter, your site has the potential to see a dramatic increase in traffic. Getting your story submitted enough times will eventually land you on the front page of Digg (wishful thinking in most cases, but it can happen).
But how do you know when someone submits your story to Digg or not. For one thing, having a button on your site to enable visitors to do this would be a start. However, users can also submit a story manually if they think it’s good enough (this is a bit more work by the way).
To find out if your content has been submitted to Digg or not, use the following example for your website.
- Go to Digg search.
- Type in your domain name in the search box and select “URL Only”.
- Select “All Stories”, “Sort Newest First” and hit the Search button.
See the below screen capture to verify you’ve followed the above steps correctly.
If you haven’t already done so, make available a Digg button on your site where visitors can easily submit your content.
Use the code below:
digg_url = 'DIGG_PERMALINK_URL';
