Is anyone a member of Digg? I'm interested to do a little testing, but it helps to have others in your network. If you're up for it, my name over there is "Thejeffriestube Hubpages". Not sure if we have any kind of informal hubpages group, but would like to start one.
Westmantoddshaw on digg. I always submit things there first - because the hubs get indexed really quickly there, but I don't hang out there much. If you form a group there - I'll join and try to check the site out more.
Yes, if you click your share button at the bottom of your hub you will see the DIGG button there. You can post your link and get traffic from there. I personally prefer StumbleUpon, I get more traffic from there.
You CAN get digg traffic - but what I use it for is to get my hubs, etc - indexed by Google. Google's "web spiders" CRAWL digg every hour to index new web pages. Once something is indexed it can then show up in SERPS. . . .which are search engine results pages.
I do not see teh ShareButton that Cardisa is talking about? I see that The JeffriesTube is following me and I am now folloiwng back. So what exactly do we do? Read each others hubs and then "Digg" them?
Kevin, the share button is at the bottom of your own hubs, toward the center. And yes, for starters, if you like a hub you see of someone, sure, comment and digg it. I'm sure some of the more senioe members here can give us some advice too.
CMHyno: That was an excellent suggestion. I am now follwoing most if not all of you. Would appreciate some constructive criticism on my hubs (and some clicks) - ok, ok, it was a shameless plug for ad clicks!! Hopefully Digg will send some traffic our way.
well, I thought we could not duplicate our hubs. Or is this something different? do we just start an account on Digg or StumbledUpon and then link back to our hubs? I thought there was some sort of restriction on that.
Would appreciate some clarification because I could use some backlinks - thanks!
you own all your Hub material. The only limits on you are imposed by other sites. Some do not allow backlinks, but the sites we are discussing all are for this purpose. For instance ezinearticles you cannot link in your article but you can in your signature
im on Digg.com to. Danette im pretty sure a site like Digg is fine. it just boosts your SEO and you may get some extra traffic from it but most likely you wont get traffic directly from it
if you want to follow me on Digg, my username on there is Nickalooch. Another site that is like Digg that helps even more with getting traffic is Redgage and Reddit.com. Both provide your hubs with backlinks.
I think this is a great idea! Thanks for following me on Digg and I just send you a friend request on RedGage. I was feeling a little alone out there... it's good to have friends! (I'm lisabeaman on RedGage)
I think its like all the social bookmarking sites though Marisa - its a bit crass if you only promote your own stuff. Although we all do add our own links, I think that users should be sharing other stuff as that is what makes it interesting
Hi Jeff! ... A couple of years back I used to dig Digg. That's because some of my sites used to get indexed within just a few hours. I got several Google page ones that way but of course things gradually changed.
I did not explore the idea of generating a list of followers though. Of course my sites that hit page one did not stay long either.
However recently when doing a Google search, I stumbled upon one of my sites. This makes me want to explore dig once more!
DIGG has lost a lot of its power. The Google Panda update really lowered its effectiveness for SEO. But it is a signal you still want to account for. It only takes a few seconds to DIGG a web page. SO why not use it. May help with traffic if it is something people are really interested in.
I have hubs within a couple of niches which I don't cover all that much; meaning, I don't have that many hubs in those niches. A good number of those hubs have a high bounce rate. So, I'm considering unpublishing those,...
Now, not before, when you place a link, you have a choice to click rel=nofollow so that search engines ignore it. So in future hubs that you write or if you want to go back and edit, do not check this box for links to...
I am experiencing that there is a very small traffic to my Hubs from Hubapages. It shows just 2 to 4 pages per day. On the other hand, the traffic sent from search engines is very high. Have you experiencing same thing?...
In the back of my mind I'm always looking for ways we can improve the HubPages product to help people be more efficient at increasing their traffic. Lots of things in the product start with manual expirments that...
