      I used it a while back and found it a big waste of time.  Although to be honest I never really understood the purpose of it, so maybe I'm not the best person to say.

        I really don't like it.
        Never saw any benefit from using it.

      Every time I create a Hub, I automatically submit it to Digg. It can get traffic, others may like it and "digg" it too, and at the very least it's an "easy backlink" to the hub from the time it is published.

      I also feed my hubpages rss to twitter via twitterfeed.com to a business twitter account.  That gives me a second automatic backlink.

        Posts which reach the front of Digg will more than likely not stay there for very long, there is very little SEO benefit to Digg.

        Also to an early post, Digg gets youa lot of traffic sometiems, but it tends to be extremely low quality in terms of clicks or sales.

          If its stay for short time its good because this site have alexa rank  130 , this mean this site get millions of visitors every day .
          What happen if your post appear in the home page of digg in front in this number of visitors even 1 hr only !!

            Alexa rank is unimportant to SEO, to most people in fact. It can be easily faked, it has a limited audience (only people who install the alexa toolbar) and is only really used often by those people who are trying to sell domains on sites like Digital Point.

    I don't think it will help us unless our story gets huge number of diggs.

    Well, I've never seen much from it either...looks like that's the norm.

    Digg is no follow, so it does not serve much of an SEO purpose. 

    I digg when I get some spare tiem, if nothing else it opens up the opportunity for traffic, and more people are more likely to 'digg' as well.

    It is not particularly useful though.

      But its good source of traffic !

        It is a good source of poor traffic. I gave up on regular 'Digging' after I once again received the Digg Effect and made less than $10 from several million hits.

    Like Oli said, its not good for backlinks though it is good for getting traffic, that is if you are active on the site with followers.  Just like with any social network, the size of your network will determine how beneficial it will be.  You see, a good social network will bookmark your urls across several platforms, reddit, stumblupon, folkd, etc.  You do the same for your network of followers and rarely submit your own urls.

    Glemoh, you seem to have a good idea of what you doing online, but posting copied content as hubs will hold you back. Write your own stuff and you will do better.

        No it isn't, it's all your hubs. Hubpages like original content, maybe you could re-word them?

          Glemoh101posted 7 years agoin reply to this

          As i told you its just one hub that i copy , but other hubs is my own work .
          I will reword this hub because its affect on my hubscore but other hubs are good .
          And if you have the original sources of the other hubs just send here , I'm not copier.
