The traffic you get from these sites is generally unqualified curiosity surfers. Conversion to sales is miserable. You get a temporary bump in hits, but that just gives you a false sense of "popularity". But what about the "Digg Effect?" Doesn't every blogger dream of getting to the front page of Digg and then getting like a million hits in that one day? Must be that *some* of those million are good, no? Thanks.
