1. Sign up for an account, and plan to participate daily. A wishy-washy attitude
will not work well with fellow Diggers.
2. Be sure you understand how Digg works before you begin actively
3. Pay attention to user comments, and be prepared to respond as well as
become an active part of the conversation.
4. Get a feel for how and why certain stories become popular. This will give you
a better understanding of Digg, and also give you insight into how to make
your stories and postings more popular as well.
5. Try to accumulate as many friends as you can. Much like Twitter, you want as
many contacts and outreaches as you can garner so you can affect more
people that way.
6. Start a buddy list. This list is designed to give you a one on one ability within
Digg. It allows IM use, but be careful and try to not use this feature too much

7. Build your profile up to make it look as thorough and professional as possible.
Just like any other website or service, this is the home base where people will
be looking to find out who you are and what you’re about. Make it as good as
you possibly can.
8. Look for the power users of the site, and then be friends with them. This is a
huge help to you because others will see that you’re associated with them,
and it will help you get much more exposure in the long run.
9. Only submit content that is worth something. Don’t bombard the site or your
page with worthless links and silly stories. Make sure they are interesting and
10. Send out shouts. On Digg, people can send out shouts to each other. This is
the single best way to get noticed and to get some feedback, so send shouts
