You Must Get Up Early to Game Digg

You have to get up pretty darn early, if you want to try and game Digg.

Your best bet to get traffic from Digg is to simply create something that is “Digg-worthy”. Sending an email to the Top 30 Digg users and asking them to help promote your company, is just dumb. Unfortunately for one top digger, he fell for the pitch and ended up having his account suspended.

Here’s where Digger Karim “Supernova17″ Yergaliyev went wrong. He agreed to a request from a company that had emailed all of the Top 30 Diggers. Hello? Didn’t it occur to you that the other 29 would recognize realize that you were the one who gave in to temptation?

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against marketers utilizing the popularity and experience of a top Digger. But you should take advantage of their advice in creating something of value to other Digg users, not simple drop some cash for Digg-spam.

BTW, what do you think of the new-look Digg homepage?
