Digg is a social bookmarking website and also is a news aggregator, which allows you to submit the links or Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) of interesting and useful pages that you find on the Internet or your own blog to a very large searchable directory.
With the help of Digg, you can share content to other social platforms such as Twitter and Facebook. When other users like an article on Digg, they click the “Digg” button to vote. If a page gets a large number of votes in a very short span of time, then there is a possibility that it might be featured on the Homepage of Digg or its weekly “Diggnation” podcast.
Steps to Submit a page or link to Digg
I have outlined some points below which will explain to you how to submit a page or link to Digg to promote your blog/website:
1. Enter Digg.com into the address bar of your web browser. The home page of Digg will come up. You need to click “Login” button in the upper-right corner of the page. If you do not have a Digg account, you will need to click the “Create One” link and follow the instructions to create a new account. If you do have a Digg account, just type your Digg username and password.
2. A new screen will come up where you need to click the “Submit Link” button in the upper-left corner of the page.
3. Type the complete URL of the page that you want to submit to Digg, such as “http://www.beyondgenie.com/how-to-select-a-wordpress-theme/” and Digg will automatically fetch the page from the link and will show its title and description. If you want to modify the title and description you can do that here. In case, the title and description are long, you can modify them to attract visitors’ attention.
4. You will need to click the “Choose Topic” drop-down menu and select the appropriate topic of the page/link that you are submitting, such as WordPress, SEO, Online Marketing and Social Media. Thereafter, you need to click the “Digg It!” button to submit the page to Digg.com.
That’s it, congratulations your page/link has been submitted to Digg successfully. If you have liked this post, consider sharing it through Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus and other popular social networks.
