Digg’s New Toolbar Feature to Really Boost Traffic

Posted on: February 27, 2009

For each page, the toolbar creates a shortened URL similar to TinyURL or bit.ly that starts instead with http://digg.com/. . . followed by a six-character code such as <a href=”http://digg.com/d1gVha.


This is pretty good stuff, I like the way digg.com is short enough a URL for a tinyURL. It picks up on the whole tinyURL trend that’s blowing through the web.

I think this will really ramp up traffic on Digg once it is released.

Basically total available market for any tinyURL service = number of urls on the web.

With Digg, you add on momentum so that gives them a big headstart.

Most importantly, digg URLs get to be embedded in millions of twitter statuses and Facebook statuses that will seriously drive traffic from the upcoming realtime evolution of the web.
