What is Digg and how do you get those “digg this” links?


Kim Klaver noticed that I have a new feature on the MLM Blog and asked me to explain, "What is Digg and how do you put those ‘Digg this’ buttons on your articles?".

What is Digg?

Digg is a website that allows users to submit a blog post or news story that they find interesting. The Digg magic begins when other Digg users "Digg" your story. If your story is deemed worthy by Digg users, it will rise on the Digg page and become popular.

Having a story or blog post gain traction on Digg can mean a big jump in traffic. I was Dugg not so long ago and it resulted in over 30,000 unique visitors over a 3 day period.

How did I get those cool "Digg This" links at the bottom of my posts?

The cool links at the bottom of my posts come from Feedburner. Feedburner is company that helps to make blog syndication easier to understand and use. The Feedburner plugin that controls the little links is called Feedflare.


FeedFlare allows publishers to easily build “interactivity” into the
content they create, making it simple for subscribers to tag, email or
share their content with others. Publishers can include a variety of services
including a live display of the number of comments to each post, the
ability to email the author directly and show the number of blogs that
link to their item.

For my widgets at the bottom of posts, I chose Digg, email this, and Track co.comments. I haven’t explained it yet, but co.comments allows you to track the comments made on a particular blog post, I just explained Digg and email this allows you to email my post to a few hundred of your closest friends.
