Digg is not loved by SEOs just because it brings good number of quality links and satisfactory traffic,but Digg gives the best available exposure on the net for the site and this may also follow frontpages of other user-driven sites.Hardly any story that makes it to the Digg frontpage fails to top the frontpage of Reddit.This cycle may continue with smaller social news sites ending up with a gross traffic ranging from 200k to 400k and sometimes even more.This will certainly crash those wordpress servers but blogspot has shown it's super powers[Thanks to Google].
One interesting fact is that you don't even have to do any work to do to get your story on those sites.The still not copyrighted 'Rule of the Web2.0' principle states that every user driven site has a top user[s] who are thriving to finding stories that will help them rise up to their status and stories submitted by top users has a greater chance of making it to the top thanks to the top user game phenomenon.
