10 ways to rule Digg
The SEO Black Hat blog is taking on one of the Web's most influential communities today - readers of the popular user-selected news website Digg - by ticking off the group's collective foibles. In an article that rapidly soared to the top of Digg's most-popular list, SEO listed 10 steps to get your story on Digg's front page. Among the tricks: Structure your article as a how-to or list, write about Apple and Firefox glowingly, decry Wal-Mart and Fox News, and be sure to mention Digg and its founder, Kevin Rose.
The Browser's instant reaction: Meet the new media, same as the old media. Magazine and
newspaper editors love lists too, and readers love reading about themselves and having their biases confirmed. The only difference is that with user-directed content sites like Digg, there's nothing restraining users from stampeding in the same direction.
