Digg-like sites to help you spread the word

While Digg is the leading site to submit any kind of link for voting, there are digg-like sites out there that are more specific to our Web Design and Development world.

Web Design and Development


Design Float – “By becoming part of the Design Float community, you decide what content is submitted and made popular. The community relies on its members to provide relevant content as well as rates, through “Floats”,  for each entry so that the best and most relevant entries float their way to the top.”


Design Bump – “DesignBump is a place to share and discover the best design related links from around the web.”


Designmoo (Beta) – “DesignMoo brings together the latest news in the design community from thousands of sources. Find the best news, tutorials and resources of the day and vote for your favorite stories.”



WPscoop – “WP-Scoop (WordPress Scoop) is a website dedicated to bringing you WordPress related News, Reviews and Stories. All the latest and greatest information on the WordPress blogging platform can be found on the pages of WPscoop.”


WPress’d – “WPress’d is the only resource you need for all your WordPress related content. Why subscribe to 20 feeds when you can subscribe to just one, which has content from all of them.”


Though not specific to web design/development related links, twitter is widely used by the web design and development community.


twittl – “Twittl is the worlds first user based voting system specifically designed for Twitter. Users can now find the worlds best tweets all on the one site. Any user can submit any tweet and share the link with their friends who can then also vote on their favourites”

    Not being mean, I dislike design float a lot! They have so much downtime, and don’t even bother to explain why.

    Its annoying. I do like design bump though :)


  2. Benjamin Cip says:

    I already use several social Media Marketing site such as Digg, Delicious, Technorati, reddit and so on, and think they are great to gather traffic for your site, at least if you write quality articles…

  3. @Simon: Design float has been having a lot of problem in the last year which is too bad.

    @Benjamin Cip: Those are all great as well but I find that the articles/tutorials for designers and developers are more obvious and in the fore-front on sites like Designbump and Moo. There’s so many submissions on Digg that even great articles get lost amongst the spam entries.

    Very handy! Thanks for posting.

    WPress’d hasn’t been updated in 3 months. With the speed of WordPress development is the information on it still relevant? Surely there are better WordPress sites than this?

  6. @JonnyFive – If you know of any more digg-like sites for WordPress (or other web design related), please post them up. If we have enough, we could always do a “Part II” ;) Thanks!
