SEO Tips, Digg

A cool way to attract new visitors to a blog is by bookmarking posts on social bookmarking sites.  One of the bigger social bookmarking websites is Digg.com.  If a post becomes popular enough it can draw massive exposure to hundreds of thousands of new visitors.

Digging can require some time investment, but unlike Stumbleupon.com, you can setup your blog to automatically Digg your blog entries.

What is required to Automatically Digg your blog entries?

How To Automatically Digg Your Blog Posts

Step 1 Setup a Digg Account - Go to Digg.Com and sign in or sign up.

Step 2 Import Feeds - Once logged in click the drop down menu in upper top right.  It is located next to the Search Box.  Click the "Import Links" link on the sidebar. 

Step 3 Add Blog Sitemap URL - Enter the Sitemap URL address for your blog.  Here is an example of a Blogger Sitemap.    and the category you blog falls under.Add those details and click the 'Add Feed' button.  Once you enter the URL for the blog sitemap, select a topic from the "Choose a Topic" dropdown.  Once all the information has been entered, click the [Add Feed] button.

Step 4 Verification of Ownership - Digg will ask you to verify that you are the owner of the blog.  Selecting the 2nd option "Copy & Paste this key in your next post.".  At this point open a new tab or window with your blog and paste the HTML code provided by Digg in either a new blog entry or the last blog entry.  Once you have added and saved the code, click the [Verify Now] button.  Digg will automatically Digg your blog posts.
