ChinaInternetImage     * First Featured at Technorati*

Last week, China called on the United Nations to develop a comprehensive set of web traffic rules for the internet.  Chinese government officials claim that the United Nations is best suited for the task due to it’s role in global and geo-political affairs.

The Chinese ambassador for disarmament affairs, addressed the UN General Assembly on information and cyberspace security.  The Chinese voice their concern that the internet is now ingrained in virtually all aspects of our society and has serious concerns that there are no comprehensive website traffic rules.

The ambassador voiced his concerns about web traffic related incidents where malicious damage has occured and stressed his countries plea for international rules and guidelines that govern cyber security of various countries.

Last month, China, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan submitted to the UN General Assembly an “International Code of Conduct for Information Security” that pushes for the implimentation of an open and transparent process for developing, within the framework of the United Nations, international norms and rules for information and cybersecurity.

The Chinese want all UN member states to join in responsible and constructive initiatives to control and govern web traffic flow in cyber space.  Claiming that the internet connects all people more closely within seconds of each other, they are seeking to build peaceful, secure, and equitable cyber security.

The Chinese ambassador called on the international community to work together to make cyber technology better in order to serve world peace and the “well-being” of mankind.

How to Drive Website Traffic that You Can Digg

Digg Image     Digg has introduced some new features lately that allow you to leverage the site to move more web traffic to your content.

For example, the “Newsroom” feature which further categorizes content along with big business brands and local news for your area improves the functionality of the site and adds a more user friendly feel to it.

Three options to either vote on an article with a “thumbs up, thumbs down, or bury the article” increases interactivity and with the count added to the social media side of experience really proves the level of interaction on a particular submission.

Speaking of submissions, it’s now also easier to submit content to Digg because you can either submit to a topic or a newsroom, the key is though that you have to be “following” a newsroom for the submit option to appear.

To get more website traffic to your content follow these 3 steps:

1. Submit your article to Digg and ensure the proper Newsroom topic relates to the content that you are submitting (this improves post visibility).  Use a good image for a thumbnail which will enhance click-through rates.

2. Add the Digg button to your site, blog, and/or web pages. Encourage your website visitors to “Digg” your content by clicking on the Digg button.

*Note: the Digg Digg, LinksAlpha and Sexy Bookmarks plugins/widgets for wordpress work well and are what I am most familiar with there is also a Shareaholic browser plug-in for various browsers.

3. Be social, for all of the Newsroom topics that you decide to follow keep track of who votes to Digg or bury your articles/posts/content.  You can also monitor the leaderboards the most active users. Connect with and enage with the people who “Digg” your content, this way when you have new content to post your can notify them and they can notify you.

Keep in mind that Digg awards users that actually read an article before they Digg it so pay attention and by using the information provided above you will be Digging the web traffic that will be coming your way in no time.
