Right then, lets get going. When you submit your blog posts to Digg your link will appear on the Upcoming page. Seeing as this page is Google PageRank 7 it will be crawled by Google bots (As well as other search engine bots) very frequently, probably several times a minute. So, how does this help you? Well, if your link is there, the bots will follow them (as the links are not NoFollow). Then after they follow these links your pages will likely get indexed, very quickly. Consequently, if you “digg” all of your posts after you post them, you can get your pages indexed rapidly!
Getting indexed is all well and good, but how else can Digg help you? We want traffic, I hear you scream! Digg can provide traffic, but only if you are providing good content! As I said before, the more “diggs” you get the more popular your content is deamed to be. With popular content you can get traffic. If you get enough “diggs” (Between 50 and 200) you could get your article on the front age of Digg! How much traffic can you expect? Get 200ish “diggs” and expect about 6000 hits, get 3000ish “diggs” and expect 140,000 hits! So in fact, you may not want loads of diggs, it could crash your server!
However, if you don’t get onto the front page, don’t expect much traffic. Of course, you may get the odd 10 hits here and there, but nothing major. So to get on the front page, get some good content on your blog!
What I have said here applies to most social bookmarking sites! SO I would definitely recommend submitting all of your articles to the other major ones as well as Digg!

This is a great writeup on digg for newbs like me. Keep up the great work!
Yep you can get a load of traffic and serious increases in your serps from these social networking sites.
But you should be careful from overpromoting your own sites, it seems to have little effect. The Social networking sites will black list obvious self promotions coming from the same IP address
of course we all know how to change that address right

this is good but how does digg work as a follow link?, does it help rank your page as a backlink?, so can digg give you seo backlinks?.
Yes, unless your logged in, which search engine bots wont be, the links are follow links. This means it will help with SEO!
This is a Good Idea I also tried Digging the Upcoming Diggs but Digg Friends that are not really active in Digg and just using their Facebook Profile to log in are not very good friends If you digg me I dig back the same goes for twitter.
yes digg is a excellent social site.its great for link building and for increasing traffic to your site.
Though when you post in digg, you’ll get tons of competition so this is where your creative writing kicks in to be able to have your content stand out.
