Darren Rowse - 7 Ways to Get to the Top of the Del.icio.us Popular Page

Del.icio.us is one of the foremost social bookmarking sites on the internet, along with others such as Digg and SlashDot. Social Bookmarking sites are notorious for providing an amazing level of traffic to any blog or site lucky enough to end up on their frontpage. Darren Rowse recently released an article titled 7 Ways To Get To The Top Of The Del.icio.us Popular Page.

The foremost point that he makes is the value of lists and numbers in reaching the front of social bookmarking sites. When he analyzed Del.icio.us he found that approximately 40% of the posts on the main page contained a list in some shape or form. They also typically contained a number referring to the amount of points the list would make i.e. "7 Ways to Get to the Top of the Del.icio.us Popular Page" rather than "Several Ways to Get to the Top of the Del.icio.us Popular Page". Overall this is another great article at ProBlogger which it might benefit any aspiring blog czar to read.
