How To Add Prominent Digg button to your Hubs and increase hub bookmarking rate

Updated on November 15, 2012

Adding Digg Button To Your Hub

I don't Know if anyone has been doing this before or i am the first person to come up with this technique or idea.I have a feeling that i am the first one to find out a way to allow readers to Digg your hub directly from your hub and i am pretty glad for that.hub pages has a share button to Digg but readers don't see it until they click on the share button below the hubs and many of the readers don't bother to do i have another way to add Digg share link to your hubs that will surely increase your hub Digg give it a try

Now social bookmarking is like a online version of sharing , caring and storing.I said sharing ,caring and storing because there are many site on internet that allow users to share the information they find interesting while surfing on internet so that they may recommend a certain link to their friends and for web masters and article writers (like you) these social bookmarking sites provide an excellent opportunity to promote your content (Hubs if you are on hubpages) so that more and more people may know about your great work and share it with others.You will find a lot of social bookmarking sites on internet that almost every hubber(and web master) use daily.I have addded a list of some social bookmarking sites below so you can start using them right now if you are not using social bookmarking sites for your hubs.

I don't know why hub pages have not added prominent share buttons to such bookmarking sites like Digg,stumble upon,she told me,raddit etc. There must be some reason that we don't know.i believe there will be thousands of bookmarks and a massive promotion of each hub and whole community as well if they just add prominent social bookmarking buttons to hubs.Well If hub pages has not added prominent digg button to hubpages there's nothing we can do about that but we can do one thing and that's adding prominent Digg button to our hubs by ourself.Well actually its not really a button its kind of a link which your users can click to Digg your hub on

That's How You Add Digg Button To Your Hub

I will keep it simple and straight so just follow the following steps and you will be able to allow your readers to Digg your hubs on

  1. Join (of course you will need that)
  2. Get the URL of your hub and submit it on by Clicking on the ''submit link'' tab on the top left of homepage that will be the URl of your submission
  3. After submission you will be redirected to a page where you will be able to see your submission copy the URL of that page
  4. Now go back to your hub and click on edit (edit your hub)
  5. Add a ''link'' tab at the end of your hub
  6. Insert the'' URL of your submission '' in the link tab
  7. You can give any title to your digg submission URL like'' Digg it'' or any thing you like
  8. Publish your Hub again
  9. You have added digg it button to your hub
  10. Smile :)

Hopefully this will help a lot of fellow hubbers .You can also add the similar buttons of other social bookmarking sites by similar way.I have added a ''Digg it'' button below this hub as an example and also a proof to the credibility of this procedure of adding Digg button to your hub :)

Adding such social bookmarking buttons to your hub will surely increase a lot of traffic to your hubs

Please feel free to comment if you liked this hub . I guess i deserve a little appreciation from other hubbers if this really work for them :P

      This is great. But are we allowed to do this - place the digg URL of the hub inside our hub that is. Don't want to get into trouble for this

      yes there is a ''share'' button but most of the people don't bother to bookmark hubs.and if you add such prominent bookmarking buttons to hubs your bookmark rate will surely increase .

      I don't know why hub pages have not added any prominent social bookmarking button

      All my hubs already have a button to share it it with Digg, Stumbleupon, Reddit, Twitter, Facebook and Blogger. Doesn't yours - under the Share button at the bottom of the hub?
