Digg Hack:How to repost buried stories in digg

Ever been victim of the digg lobby.Saw your story disappear before it got enough exposure.If yes is the answer then read on.Sometimes good stories and post disappear in the midst of junk.If you got any such posts in your hand then get ready to re post it and give a fight for it.But before i tell you the trick let me tell you a story.About an year back i happened to post an image here at Blogger Whale which i thought was very interesting and hoped that the digg crowd will shower its digg and put me on the front page.I had very much confidence in the pic alone that i didn't do much to promote the post at digg.I posted the story and waited for a response.The story got buried in no time.

I was very disappointed.About a month later i reposted the post.This time i targeted the geek community at digg,usually the guys who read science and technology + the guy who read softwares and coding stuff.I changed the title a bit and waited.In half an hour my effort started showing colours and i was on the front page.Hours later the pic gathered more attention and by this day it stands one of the most popular(digged) pics of all time at digg.

I first posted the article with this link:http://bloggerwhale.blogspot.com/2007/03/dont-trust-your-eyes.html

Reposted the story with this link:http://bloggerwhale.blogspot.com/2007/03/dont-trust-your-eyes.html#

I hope you understood the trick.Hope this information was useful.
