No One Diggs My Content
(Page 1 of 4 )
You’ve got the button in place. You’ve got the keyword phrases popping in the paragraphs. You’ve a got a great love for your content. So…why doesn’t anyone else seem to like your articles and blog posts enough to cast a vote? Wondering why no one Diggs your content or votes on those words you slave to bring forth? The problem might not be in your writing at all.
Digg is a popular method of content-spreading and promotion which is used by many, many content writers. With a single HTML code, writers can place a voting button on their articles and blog posts that could potentially propel the piece all across the Web.
It’s a heady thing to think that your content might be read by thousands. But you might find that instead of great promotion, you’re being greatly let down. What do you do if no one seems to want to Digg, or vote upon, your content?
Digg is, more or less, a method of voting on and sharing content which appears on the Internet. In order to use the system, you’ll place an HTML code on all of your pieces of content (all the pieces you want to be eligible, anyway) so that a button or link can be displayed with said content. If traffic likes what they read, they’re supposed to vote. Sure it’s interesting, but what’s the point of using Digg at all?
Anyone who visits Digg will immediately see many different pieces of content. On the left is a grouping of content from all over the Web, on several varying subjects. On the right is a list of the most popular content known to Digg (those articles and blog posts which received the highest number of votes through the Digg system). This is the top content for that particular day.
When your content gets a vote through Digg, your article or blog post will become a part of the site. Online readers who are looking through content that’s featured on Digg just might find your words. The more votes you have, the higher your chances of being seen by the Digg public in general. This means that traffic doesn’t have to travel to your site or use a search engine to find your content. This means that, in a way, Digg is driving traffic to your content for you. Through Digg, you can help spread the virtual word about your content (and by extension, your site).
Why not use Digg, if it can do all that for your site? Because, sometimes, those contrary voters just don’t do what we want. If you find that you’re not getting votes, check the logistics of your Digg design. Make sure your codes are working and that the link takes users right where they need to go.
