Social media sites have huge numbers of fans. Getting a piece of content on the front pages of these sites will bring browsers to your site. It is important to know how to approach the site in order to become popular with its readership.
The following article provides information on the top social media sites:
After establishing a digg account, users submit content and others in the community read the articles and vote for ones they like the best.
This site is most useful if you have an informational resource linked to your own site. It is not a platform for self-advertising; your popularity will grow based on others’ references. It is a bookmarking site, so the possibility of attracting continual customers is there.
Reddit is a lot like digg, but the content is broader. Reddit readers like witty and unique material.
Technorati is much like del.icio.us, but for blogs. The site provides tracking opportunities that are useful.
Squidoo enables a user to create a “lens” (page) on any given topic. You can use the lens to promote your company, industry, hobbies, other people, etc.
