StumbleUpon, Digg, and Reddit…The Advantages of Using Them to Market Your Website!
StumbleUpon, Digg, and Reddit are excellent resources for sharing your content with users. These sites are what are called social bookmarking sites. You place your content on their sites so that other interested users can share your content with their users. Hence, if you have valuable products or services, you can share these items on StumbleUpon, Digg, and Reddit along with other social bookmarking sites so that your items receive exposure.
Let’s look at the advantages of using StumbledUpon and Digg…
StumbleUpon and Digg uses ratings to form collaborative opinions on website quality and content. When you “stumble” or “digg” content, you will only see pages that friends and like-minded people have recommended. These sites help you get your great content found that searchers probably wouldn’t find using a search engine to look up.
What this means is by registering for an account with them you are able to add their toolbar to your browser menu and “Stumble” or “Digg” websites. By doing this, the sites that you add will show up in StumbledUpon and Digg’s search pages and stream. This will give your content additional traffic from users of these as well as give you additional links so your content will be indexed from search engines more rapidly.
