There has been a bit of chatter about Digg here on Active Rain and I believe it is a great place to share news. The big problem with Digg is that it is very difficult to get those front page stories, especially with real estate related content. Digg is a techno-centric news site and while a few off topic stories get front page status most are either political or silly/funny stories. Real estate content is not a real high priority to most power Diggers and that means real estate stories languish on the back pages. On top of that Digg looks unfavorably on self promotion so if you are submitting your own stories many Diggers will vote them down and if they see enough Diggs from the same place they may ban the domains.
So how can real estate related articles get traction in social news sites? Enter Real Estate Voices. Real Estate Voices is a real estate focused social news site. The users there are interested in real estate related articles. So you have an audience that wants to read what you have to say. They are also less likely to vote against submissions from the actual author of the article. You can submit your own stories to an audience that is interested in what you have to say. There are also far few stories being submitted so the chances of having your content being seen is much greater. I would suggest checking it out and becoming active there. It offers a lot of interesting real estate content and it can be a great place to add your content and gain more exposure and possibly some good backlinks.
