    You say like Digg - What script are you using Pligg ?? PhpDug ??

    Your SEO efforts will greatly depend upon what script you are using. Both of the ones I mentioned I do not like but a pligg site can be SEO'ed just not as good as it should be but none the less can be done...

    Well it is one of the worst scripts out there but better than PhpDug when it comes to SEO...

    * Make sure you have the friendly URL's turned on
    * Categories - Use keywords for category names
    * Make sure your title, description, keywords are set for meta tags
    * Add Content


    - Friendly URL's go to configure and click on SEO (if you do not see SEO then enable it under mods).

    Now set your friendly URL's

    First Setting = 2
    2nd Setting = True
    3rd Setting = True

    - Categories go to Manage ---> Categories - Add keywords for example instead of using "News" use something that gets searches such as "Celeb News Online" (which does get decent searches by the way).

    So in other words make sure your categories are keyword rich.

    - Meta Tags, not sure there is a module for this so you may have to edit the templates. Not sure how to do this then hire someone.

    - Add Content - Go to Language and on his very very long page edit anything that could use keywords. Especially edit the section that says "what is pligg ?" this shows on your main index page.

    Go to Manage --> Pages - now edit your about page to add keyword rich and informative content based on your sites theme. You can also add other pages here with content that should contain keywords.

    To be honest you would need make sure your site is always first to have news and links and buzz. Then when people start linking to your site they will start submitting. Somehow you have to be as fast to get create viral content as the big boys. Very very tough

    What makes you better than Digg? You can't be the next greatest thing by merely doing something someone else does (and especially if you can't even do it as good as they do...)...

    What's the point of you being online..... Why would people use your service over that of the whole lot of others out there?

    What makes you special?

    (focus on that)

    Well in my opinion for social media site, organic SEO is not a very good option. Generally I don't feel people will search with social media related terms in search engines.

    IMHO possible internet marketing options are:

    Banner Ads
    Email campaign (through some reliable company)
    PPC Campaign (at search engines and social media sites as well)
