Digg. FAQ walkthrough
You forgot the evil laugh. :)
@Nosy, it may be on their end. I didn’t find where you used this on your blog though so I can’t double check for you.
I had taken it out. But I placed the code that Matt told us at the very bottom of the post and that’s what it showed. I can try again today to see if things are better now.
What am I doing wrong? I put the code [digg=http://digg.com/url_to/story_on_digg] and it still shows what I said it showed.
I figured it out!
I do note when you submit a story over at digg, when you’re done, it drops you on the ‘/blog’ page. That threw me the first time because I was expecting to see the URL I should use.
I have no idea what you all are talking about. Can you please help my feeble mind understand what to learn from this thread. Thank you so much.
I was putting the code [digg=http://digg.com/url_to/story_on_digg]
But then I thought maybe the digg story url should go after [digg=http://digg.com/
And where url_to/story_on_digg] is is where the digg story url goes
Digg is a site (network, juggernaut) that basically is a place where people can say “This blog post was interesting, go see it.” As such, it can be a very powerful hit-driving tool if you have something that a lot of people find relevant.
PS Mark, what is that avatar? IT looks like a ninja turtle in 3-D aviator shades.
Thanks so much for the clarity raincoaster. You are the best! Have a great day.
Weird.. according to this list wordpress.com was at once time banned from digg (not the individual blogs, the main site)
I think there’s a misunderstanding there. if you click through to the source article, wp.com isn’t banned. It was just an example of a site doing it correctly with subdomains.
Forgot to say that I also took out the http: from the digg story url. :)
Thank you, I’ve often wondered how this works. Your instructions were easy to follow.
The digg outline and yellow fill of the button does not show up for me. Is this because of the theme that I am using?
I can see it on your first post but only the first post:
I’m on Firefox version 188.8.131.52
Thanks for showing me nosysnoop. There is only one button on the first post.
I hunted around wordpress.com for digg buttons, and found that they appear as they do on my blog:
So it may well be my browser (Firefox 1.0.4).
Yeah could be browser. Sometimes on IE one’s site can look completely different. Check once in a while on IE if you do anything new on your site. Most people in the world use IE.
Good list of “how not to get on the Digg homepage”
