    I used digg yesterday and I get few traffic from it, mind if I'll you guys if Digg is working well with you...

      I use digg too but it's not very good though. Traffic is minimal.

    Posting your own content is against the TOS of Digg, so I don't bother using it.

    yeah, but everybody does it anyway Howitzer.

    its really not good traffic, they are window shoppers, they usually head back to digg/stumble/reddit whatever so they never click your ads. traffic that doesnt convert can actually hurt your earnings

    This is pretty much accepted across the IM field

    When I run out of charmin, there are always tons of TOS 's laying around to help me out

    Thank you very much... I will extinguish my account in Digg... thanks for sharing Relache and sunforged for the splendid viewpoints I really needed this...

    I agree that digg and some of the other sites like perhaps stumbleupon bring random traffic to your hubs where people just like to browse and read and not click things.
    However one thing that it can do is bring random people that also have specific blogs that will then link to you.

    I got banned from Digg for posting two links in one day
    (Not links to me mind you, just links)
    They said I was spamming.
    And it was my first day.
    I LOVE Diggs little cliques so much that I totally ignore it now.

      I got banned my 1st day as well, ironic, doncha think ?

    I think I have had 3 hits from Digg since joining 6 months ago!

    I think it's a mistake to ignore Digg.  Even if no one from Digg ever pays attention to your article (although if you hit a sweet spot and manage to trend upwards you're in good shape), it will almost always get instant google traffic and become an extra page linking to you with a high search engine ranking.

    I think digg is a dofollow link, so many people use it for backlinking purposes rather than getting traffic. Some say it helps get you indexed so you show up in Google searches, although I'm not sure if that would apply to hubpages or not.

    Digg is useless, better off digging a hole in yer garden but Redditt is good !

    Even when I post things to Digg that I just find fun and cool on the web no one visits them.. so getting traffic from your content is probably just as unlikely.
