Did a test with digg.com
A week ago I submitted my blogg post "How to write DOS text on your site" to test out digg.com and kind of explore it. It was my first submitted item and I wanted to try out how it worked.
Well, somehow I got enough diggs in a short time and so got listed on the home page of digg.com ... The listing was only there for some hours as the item had no news value and got a lot of negative feedback (also some positive of course) and so it was taken out. Well, I don't care about that but now to the interesting part:
a few hours on digg.com - what effect did that bring?
- 4500 unique visitors
- 194 digged it
- 36 commented it on the digg
- 7 commented it on the blog
- 3 members furled it
- 4 blogged it
- 12 put it on del.icio.us
- 1 guestbooked it
- It went on numerous RSS feeds such as diggdot.us which brought hundreds of more visitors
This is very interesting and was beyond my imagination.
The above created backlinks from 37 different web sites (not pages), many with high PR.
This is defenitely a valuable tool in marketing. Create something fantastic and let the snowball run down the snow filled mountain ...
