    How To Get Traffic From Social Bookmarking Sites

    Sites like digg.com, reddit.com, stumbleupon.com etc can bring you a LOT of traffic. How about getting 20,000 and more visitors a day when your listing hits the front page?

    Getting to the front page of these sites is not as difficult as it seems. I have been successful with digg and del.icio.us multiple times and have thus compiled a list of steps that have helped me succeed:

    1.Build a top-profile
    2. Pay attention to your Headlines
    3. Write a meaningful & short description
    4. Make it easy for others to vote / bookmark your site
    5. Submit to the right category
    6.Do not use automated submitters

    Hope this will help you friends...

    Could you please explain these steps in a little more detail or else it would look like your only promoting your services in signatures. Yeah I would also want to know how to build a top-profile. Thanks

    Not all users are equal on social bookmarking sites. If you are an old and respected user who has posted tons of interesting stuff, this increases the probability that what you submit will get noticed. Posting links to interesting articles on other sites is vital for building a top-profile. Additionally, it is suspicious, when your profile has links to only one site. Many social bookmarking sites frown when users submit their own content because this feels like self-promotion.

    I have at times off and on, had a post or posts submitted to digg, reddit, etc.

    And got huge amounts of traffic for a few days.

    But most of that traffic?
    Come and gone in a flash.

    I don't have (much) experience with social bookmarking (yet). I guess receiving traffic from social bookmarking sites isn't all that difficult, but to receive quality targeted traffic that converts is a different game.

    Let's assume that I own a very targeted website about a business somewhere in South America that supplies a couple of scientific compounds in Antarctica. I definitely would like good rankings for my site but are 20,000 random visitors from from sites like digg.com, reddit.com, stumbleupon.com going help? In this case, I have to be able reach universities, contractors, wholesalers etc.

    How would you drive traffic to a site like in the example by using social bookmarking?

    Here are some important tips to follow in order to generate traffic from social bookmarking sites:

    -Make the description attractive and appealing.
    -Try to make the first paragraph the most interesting one. If that is good, readers will be tempted to read on.
    -Remember, content is the king. This is the best way of drawing traffic. Make the content informative and useful.
    -Make sure that the page is user friendly.
    -Maintain a friendly attitude and be interactive.
    -See that your English is impeccable.

    There is another good way to get top of front page of Digg and Reddit, use your network, Make a strong network using Facebook or other networking sites and then use that network to digg your post on digg. as many as your post get digg more chances to appear on first page of digg.

    This strategy seems to be convincing, network does play an important role, you can try the same thing with Yahoo answer for getting traffic.
