    That’s a very good tip. You don’t have to keep targetting sites like Digg directly to get on it. There are other ways. Like you mentioned in the your article, users of one social site might like your article enough to submit to another social bookmarking site.

    I’ve seen a lot of links get on the Digg’s front page.

    Another way to get on Digg is to target the sites that already do. For example, if you have a design blog, you could piggy back another blog like, which is very popular on Digg.

    Small Potato,
    Thanks, that’s a good point too. In that case it’s really a matter of being familiar with which sites do well at Digg,, etc. (like Smashing Magazine). Thanks for reading.
