A Digg Experiment

    Have you ever wondered how much traffic you would get if you had a popular story on digg?
    the most amount of diggs that I have recieved from an article that I submitted to digg is 12.
    which equated to around 40 hits on the page.
    I submitted my latest hub to digg today and wondered if it became popular on the site would it equate to alot of hits?
    please help me to find out, please digg the story below to help it on its way and I will keep you updated on the results.

    you need 150+ diggs in order to get on first page on digg.com
    you have to join a few "buzz" groups for getting diggs and other support from people that are involved in "buzzing"smile

    I thought HubPages was sandboxed on Digg because of spamming.  Maybe it was another site, I don't know, but I know it's banned on one site. 

    Anyway, I get about 40 times as many hits from Stumble as I do from Digg.  I think that's because people can happen onto your site on Stumble, and on Digg, it has to be found by looking for it.

    I can't remember my digg password...

    The most traffic I ever got from either digg or stumbleupon came when someone else submitted my stuff.

    Jimmy, I'll try to remember that password.

    ETA: I remembered it!

    Jimmy what I know about digg is that in order for it to "skyrocket" onto the first page, those 150+ diggs need to happen within a very short time period...probably a couple hours. Additionally, comments help to boost the story.

    Needless to say the story probably won't make it to the front page, BUT, you still get the incoming link regardless of how many votes you get.

    Hows it going Jimmy? I believe encouraging people to give diggs (works) give opposite results most of the time. smile

    Edit: Added you as friend smile I hope you will add me too!
