You may wonder what ‘Digg’ is? Well for beginners Digg is a website where ordinary people like you and me can submit articles and content. It is a public website and others can read and Digg what you have submitted. If your submission is great and many people like it (it means many people Digg it) then its status is upgraded and it is promoted to the first page of the website where millions of people visiting the website can read it.
Not only articles, you may even submit pod casts and videos online. As soon as you submit it, it will be shown under the heading “Upcoming Stories”. Other visitors and members can find them there and if they like it, they may Digg it. However if the submission doesn’t attract enough Diggs in the set timeframe of 12-24 hours, then it is removed from the “upcoming” section. But if there are many Diggs then it is sent to the home page of the site and is honored by being placed in “Top 10” section of the website. It is based on the popularity of the submission and the number of Diggs it has received.
There are many tools in Digg to help you in your search for articles, videos and various pod casts. The submissions come in Stack or Swarm. They are the real time flash visual tools of Digg. As the descriptions and the titles roll downwards, you may also use Spy to watch them. You may even place RSS feeds of the various topics and the new sections, users and the search items that you like and need. Suppose you have accidentally digged something wrong then you need not panic. You may even “Undigg” it. Just go to your Digg history and click on “Undigg”. Similarly if you want to block or unblock comments then you may do so by clicking on the related link. For unblocking you may have to go to your account settings. Similarly there are many other tools to make your digging a pleasant experience.
When you Digg the submission you like, you participate in the editing process of the site. Your digging contributes to the count of the submission and your friends can view your profile of diggs which you build. When you "Bury” a submission that you don’t like, the editing process is geared towards removing it from the system. It is a very effective way of removing spam.
edit Share with friends
You may build up a friend list in the Digg system and your friends can keep track of your digging and subscribe to your already submitted RSS feeds and to your “Bury” and “Diggs”. You may even email your friends who may be diggers or non diggers regarding your diggs.
You may even share your views on various submissions with others.

Search Engine Friendliness
A few simple technical fixes can make any site show up better in
The title of a web page appears in search results as the link to that page. Learn more ...
The title of a web page appears as a clickable link in search results and bookmarks. A descriptive, compelling home page title with relevant keywords can increase the number of people visiting the site.
Search engines view the text of the title tag as a strong indication of what the page is about. Accurate keywords in the title tag can help the page rank better in search results.
A title tag should have fewer than 70 characters, including spaces. Major search engines won't display more than that.
The title tag of your home page (and any other page on your site) should not contain the site’s domain name or URL. These will appear near the title in search results, so use your 70 characters to tell people what the page is about. The title tag should not contain any HTML, because it will be displayed incorrectly or not at all.
- Good: This web page has a title tag.
- Warning: The title tag for this page is too long. It should be 70 characters or less, including spaces.
- The title of this site's home page:
- “Digg - All Topics - The Latest News Headlines, Videos and Images”
The H1 heading is an important sentence or phrase on a web page that quickly and clearly tells people and search engines what they can expect to find there. Learn more ...
Just one H1
In most cases, a web page should have just one H1 heading. Using multiple H1 headings is okay if that is a logical way to organize the page, but they should be used sparingly. That’s because search engines can view multiple H1 headings as an attempt to signal that all the content on a page is equally important, a tactic that’s seen as an attempt to game the search engine algorithms.
Search engines look for an H1 heading to determine what a page is about. Human visitors do, too.
Content and placement
The H1 heading appears on the web page itself, unlike the page title, which people will see mostly in search results.
The H1 tag (which contains the H1 heading) is usually listed first among the other heading tags for a page. None of the major search engines, however, will penalize a site for listing H2 through H6 tags ahead of the H1 tag.
- Good: This page has one H1 heading.
- H1 heading for this site's home page:
- “Top News”

Your website's robots.txt file can tell search engines to ignore parts of your site. Learn more ...
Website owners usually use robots.txt to let search engines know which pages or sections of their site shouldn't be indexed for example, web contact forms, print versions of web pages and other content that's duplicated elsewhere on the site. Robots.txt can also be used to request that specific robots not index a site. For more information, read How To Use Robots.txt.
Search engine robots
You'll need to know the names of specific search engine robots - or "bots" – if you’re going to exclude any or all of them from any part of your site.
- Google’s bot is called Googlebot. Google is the world’s largest search engine, and is where many people discover new websites.
- Bing’s bot is called msnbot. Bing also provides search results to people using Yahoo to search the Web. Together, Bing and Yahoo are the second largest search resource, after Google.
- Baidu’s bot is called Baiduspider. Baidu is a major search engine in China, and the number of people using it is increasing rapidly.
- AboutUs.org’s bot is called AboutUsBot. To create a Site Report, AboutUs uses crawling technology that’s similar to what search engines use.
- Good: This website’s robots.txt file is not blocking major search engines from crawling its pages. Your website can appear in any engine’s search results.
This website can live at www.Digg.com or Digg.com. It's best for your site's visibility to live at just one URL, or web address. You'll want to create a 301 redirect to the URL you choose from the other URL. Learn more ...
Choose one or the other
If the same web page exists at two different URLs, people can choose to link to one or the other. Links from other sites to your website are valuable — they tell search engines that your site is important to people. By splitting valuable links between two identical pages, you're diluting the power of those links to help a page rank higher in search results.

Domains that redirect to the home page of Digg.com
Capture visitors who type the wrong name
It can make a lot of sense to redirect a domain to an existing web page. For example, many people are likely to type wikipedia.com when they are really looking for wikipedia.org. Creating a redirect from wikipedia.com to wikipedia.org helps these people get to the site they want.
