    Digg has very narrow niche and the traffics are more likely temporary. Alternatively these can bring more potential; reddit.com ,del.icio.us ,stumbleupon.com, fark.com ,furl.com ,newsvine.com , simpy.com ,tailrank.com.

    The first widely used content discovery service was Slashdot.org. Another very popular site of the same nature is Fark.com it has both paid and free version. In Digg there are six categories where submissions are allowed and the vast majority of submissions fall into the Science and Technology categories.

    I like the concept that evolve for digg to find random information and share interesting story to others, you can also view current news listed there in realtime by using “digg spy”. It is good tool for driving temporary traffic and generate reviews.
