Use Digg as a SEO tool to get found on Google

Digg is great at getting your website a deluge of traffic from one really popular story but there is a more to submitting your article to digg. Most people never think of using digg as a SEO tool.

Most diggers are let down when their article is not dugg and gets pushed back to the archives of digg. Everyone wants their article to be popular and to get on the front page but is it really beneficial to your site?

The first problem with getting dugg is that your website has to actually stay up and withstand the huge influx of traffic; if you have a Wordpress blog this is nearly impossible and even with Wordpress Caches you will most certainly not be able to withstand the onslaught of traffic.

The other part of the problem is that many websites will be using your digg article verbatim on their website, so generally if Joe’s website has a better page rank than yours and he puts up your article your article now gets to be moved into next rung on Google (and so on) unless most of the people actually refer to your website as the source of the story (backlinks are very important to Google’s Page Ranking).

It’s simple just digg every story no matter how interesting to the Digg crowd. May be that story was not sentilating enough for the digg crowd but it was completely useful to people doing searches on Google. The idea here is not to get an overwhelming amount of traffic but to let the flame burn for a long time over multiple stories. The point is to let your articles stand on its own.
