Semi-Quickly getting into Search Engines (thanks to Digg)

8 Mar

Not going to make any friends this way. But we tried this out, it was fun:

  1. Find Digg frontpage stories
  2. ‘Blog it’
  3. Repeat for every frontpage story [for at least 100 stories]
  4. Wait 6 months, voila – PR4-6

Mind you this was an experiment, and we already shut it down. But something to note.

UPDATE March 8: Someone asked me what they could do with such a ‘site’. Ideas include:

  • Nothing. Leave the pages as they are. Start adding pages about different content. Once in, things become easier.
  • 301. Just 301 every single page to whatever site (same domain or not). I know of people who basically get something Dugg once a month, and after 4-6 months, just 301 it somewhere else.
  • Make sure you digg only topics relevant to your point. Once you have Digg linking to you, just have that page link to something related to the point. Digg’s article on X -> your post about Digg’s article on X -> your site on X. Relevancy is key.

I’m sure you can come up with other ideas :)

Tried this in a recently concluded SEO contest. But it was too little, too late. Haha.
