Digg is a social news website where people can read a story, vote for it to make it famous, or bury the story if they dislike it. The significance of Digg for business marketing and SEO is remarkable and can be assessed from the fact that a story on the front page of Digg makes its way to top Google rank. It directs so much of traffic to your site that your server might choke. A temporarily jammed server is not a bad price to be paid for such a heavy traffic influx, bound to increase your website’s popularity as well as generate business revenues. But how to take your story to the front page of Digg? Here’s how:
1. Join Digg:
To begin with, make an account on Digg.com. Upload your own profile picture instead of fake images or company logos.
