No One Diggs My Content - Adding a Digg Button
(Page 2 of 4 )
If you want to get votes, the placement and accuracy of your Digg button is extremely important. Make sure the button or link is easy to see and that it’s all working properly.
There are three different ways you can add a Digg button to your content.
Digg itself (http://digg.com/tools/integrate#1) offers a very easy-to-understand, comprehensive page for those who want to obtain the HTML code to add a Digg button to their pages. In its most basic form, the HTML code for Digg inclusion is:
However, Digg provides different codes for those who want to make their buttons more specific or for those who wish to change the look of their Digg button in any way.
You can also add the original Digg button to your content, slightly different from the script offered above. With this version of the button, traffic can still vote on your content but they will not be submitting the piece to the Digg database. This should be used for content which has already been added to the Digg database. Since this code is somewhat out-of-date, it’s generally only in use by content that’s a bit older. The script offered above works for both old and new content, and is recommended by Digg.
But what if content voting just isn’t for you? Can your content be a part of Digg even if you eschew the politics of trying to grab votes? Try this code:
Use the code above to create a Digg button which allows users to submit your content to Digg without voting on it. Follow Digg’s on-site directions to help you complete the code, and remember that this can only be used for content that counts as news, video or images.
What if you go to the trouble of getting all these codes and checking them for accuracy…and still no one Diggs your content?
