In the web 2.0, Social Bookmarking sites like Digg, StumbleUpon, Propeller etc. are the easy and free way for website owners to place their website before thousands of people. Unless you hit the front page of these social bookmarking websites, you are not going to have any fruits. There is no instant method to reach the front page of social bookmarking websites. I’m now going to give you some tips which will help you reach the front page of social bookmarks.
To hit the front page of social bookmarking websites you need to draw the attention of people. If you look at the front page of Digg, the title of almost all articles at the front page draw your attention. Develop a catchy title. Don’t give a false title to attract the people. You’ll be banned.
Description is the next part which will bring the visitors to your site. Once you grabbed the attention of people with title they will look for the description. You need to put a brief explanation about your website/article in just around 200 words. Your description should be short and informative enough to make the reader visit your site.
Now you got visitors from social bookmarking sites to your website. Make the first paragraph of your article compelling. Don’t post crap or false info just to hit the front page. Most visitors look the first paragraph and leave away if it is not compelling. Your first paragraph must make the visitor read the full article.
To hit the front page, you need your visitor’s contribution too. They have to submit your article to the social bookmarks. People don’t do this unless you give them any option to do this. Put Social Bookmark buttons below your article. If you have a blog, then you can use Sociable Plugin. If you have a HTML page then you can use http://www.weblogicamedia.com/
These are the basic steps you need to follow in order to hit the front page of Social bookmarking sites. Also having an active profile with social bookmarking sites will help a lot to reach the front page. Having an active profile means, you need to have lots of friends, nice reputations and so.
Remember to analyze the articles at the front page before writing your article.
All the best. Let’s meet you at Digg’s FrontPage!
