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.
Thank you for posting this question, I also don't know anything about Digg.
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.
To success with digg and get huge traffic , you must make your post appear in the digg home page which have PR 8
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.
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.
Ok izzym , but its just 1 hub that may i copy it , i will review this hub .
No it isn't, it's all your hubs. Hubpages like original content, maybe you could re-word them?
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.

Just because you changed it so that it wasn't all pinched from the one website, you can't just mix and match either. It needs to be your words, not someone else's.

I understand that HubPages makes a lot of changes, and not ones we always agree with but are for the best, but I don't understand their rationale for getting rid of the link buttons at the buttom of Hubs that Hubbers could use to easily post their Hubs to sites like Digg & StumbleUpon? Why did...

It would be cool to have links on each Hub to Digg them. I find myself having to manually Digg cool hubs. I also use Delicious, it would be beneficial to have a submit link on hub for that.These social networks would provide some good back links. What do you guys think?

It came as a big shock to me. Just now I logged in to my Digg acc. and they said that site will be up soon. I thought it might be some regular maintainance. But when the site came back I could not see any shouts that were there for me. Even in my friends activities there is no record. In history I...
