Amazing Digg Tools Collection

By 26-09-2005   Social Media

Looking for Digg tools, hacks and services for a powerful Digg experience? Digg is a technology news website that combines social bookmarking, blogging, RSS, and non-hierarchical editorial control. With digg, users submit stories for review, but rather than allow an editor to decide which stories go on the homepage, the users do and thereafter Digg can act as an online traffic generator for your link.

Diggnation is a podcast hosted by Kevin Rose and Alex Albrecht that serves as a week-in-review of the most popular stories on the website Digg.com. Getting a link promoted on Digg can increase site traffic quickly. I am a regular visitor to Digg, and this is an attempt to combine all Digg tools in one place.

    Here is Firefox sidebar I made for digg. USE THE LINK (don’t save) because it’s still in “beta” and I am working on many more features that will be added soon.

    Remember! Set the link to ONLY open in Firefox’s sidebar.

    I Have done a new version of the Diggnation Widget, set up to replace the previous diggnation widgets. Please added in the Diggnation Widget Version 2.0 at http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/24432419/ or http://www.widgetgallery.com/view.php?widget=37240 Please note that unlike previous diggnation widgets, this allows you to do searches of Digg.com from the widget, because I worked so god damn hard on that feature.
