    It is a question I have been wondering for a while. I make a lot of posts for my internet marketing company.. and when I spend 1-2 days on a post.. i want to give it the best chance to get to the toplists of the major social bookmarking sites.

    Then it better be something that totally interests the masses.

    As someone who is rated on 45n5's Top MoneyMaking Blogs, I assure you that when you start bookmarking internet marketing posts, this is not something that really interests the social bookmarking sites. Better to write great content so that other bloggers will cite it, bookmark it for you, and maybe resyndicate it.

    If your posts are about internet marketing then try using Sphinn.com If your articles deal with any type of SEO at all, then Digg will be a waste of your time as they hate anything related to the subject and will bury your story in a hurry. You can also look into Gooruze.com as well.

    there are groups of folks that for a certain fee will promote your story to the digg's front page. visit the buy/sell forum on digital point and you will see a number of offers.

    Better yet, make sure your story is digg or reddit worthy. Build up your account first, submit other people's content and top news contents to practice. Ask your friend to help you voting and vote them back without being asked. Build relationship and history then bam, submit your own.

    Why don't you outsource the job to an experienced Indian team?
    Raam Anand of infoYogis may have a great offer for you to bring your page to the top. Just view his offer on his website traffic-sales-profits*dotcom. The offered price for 150 man-hours seems pretty fair offer. Maybe some people want to do all by themselves, but you may have a temptation to hire some inexpensive labor from India to do your time-consuming job working a whole day for less, then our hourly pay.

    Just go to the order.php of the site to see a clear-no-hype list of what these infoYogis can do for you. (If you still want to do all by yourself and save some bucks for daily pizzas and beers, the list will be task list for organic SEO - you can get good ideas from there about what works).

    @artswerdstone,
    Thanks for the 411 on infoYogis. Yu're right about their pricing...not bad. It's especially more appealing if you have to do all that work yourself and you get to the point where you feel like you're spinnin' plates in the air!
    I definitely bookmarked their site.

    I fully agree with Ruck and Pchrulski. Best way to get links on digg and reddit is offering something sooo interesting, that readers won't stand not sharing it with others.
    Just make readers do the work for you - this is the principle of linkbaiting. You'll need some inspiration and creativity to create something shocking and creating a strong emotional impact.
    Seeing how others succeeded may give you a good starting point. I recommend the following posts. Read them in the given order.

    "Get ‘er Dugg - A Comprehensive Guide to Going Viral on Digg (part 1)" hxxp://voltier.com/vblog/?p=6
    Just read it, practice it, and do it. Ask for more in case if you eventually encounter unexpected problems.

    Best thing you can do is have good content
