Yesterday I Digged (Dugged?) my blog page. I'd Digged/Dugg a few sites before, but I'd say I am rather new to Digg overall - I hadn't used it much or looked at it much before the 30 Day Challenge
. Shortly after I dig/dugged my site I saw a spike in my traffic - in fact it quadrupled my traffic yesterday. Wow. Now I was excited.
Ok. So maybe I got a little overzealous, maybe I should have researched it a little more - but come on I just quadrupled traffic by a single Digg. It was like walking a kid into Toys R Us and handing him a hundred bucks. I went through and Digged and Dugged different pages on my site, as well as my other sites. If 1 Digg had that kind of effect - imagine the traffic I was going to get now - I started planning the upgrade for my hosting account to handle the massive amounts of traffic I was going to be swimming in.
This is a screenshot of what Digg looks like after you get banned:
And this is what a series of emails to Digg begging them for forgiveness might look like:
Hmm...They don't seem to be much into forgiveness.
So for all you 30 Day Challengers. Let this be a lesson to all of you on what not to do on Dig Dug. Punishment could include sending you back to traffic purgatory. Well, ok - I still have Stumble and Delicious and the 148 other social bookmarking sites...
Oh yeah - don't forget to Digg
