How to Spam Digg Comments and Drive Traffic To Your Blog
Posted on 10th January, 2007
Shocking title I know 🙂 but, no, I am not actually advocating you to spam Digg with useless comment.
But like commenting on a blog post, you can take advantage of the commenting feature on Digg to drive traffic into your own blog or site.
From Neil’s post, There Is More to Digg than the Homepage:
If you are the first to comment on a story that reaches the homepage and you link back to your website within the comments area, you will notice that it can drive a few hundred visitors. So if you want to get a few hundred visitors by commenting on these social sites, here is what you do:
1. First find upcoming stories that have the potential to reach the homepage, are related to your site, and have little to no comments.
2. Then you want to read the story and make sure you have something useful to say.
3. If you have something worthy to say and can relate it to a page on your website then you can try to comment and add a link to your website.
The keyword here is “related”. If you link to a post in your blog, make sure that it’s related and add values to the original post.
Knowing how the Digg audience is, be ready to receive some negative feedback if your comment smells remotely like spam.
I personally delete comments that link to a blog or website if I think it doesn’t add value or unrelated to my post in Sabahan.com[via Search Engine Journal]
