Jim Robinson Has Given Us Permission to start a Digg page

Posted on 10/28/2008 1:18:41 PM PDT by GodGunsGuts

For the Mods re: Digg campaign:

Via Freepmail: "Go for it! Thanks, Jim"

This page will be kept at the top of "Breaking News"

What we want to do is either post new Digg articles/videos, or identify already existing Digg articles/videos, that tell the REAL STORY of Barack "the socialist revolutionary" Obama. Let's come up with a TOP 5 articles and a TOP 5 videos list and use FReeper power to Digg them to the top so that non-FReepers too become aware of the most dangerous presidential candidate in our nation's history!

Please place all Digg suggestions in the threads. DO NOT PROVIDE LINKS TO NON DIGG ARTICLES AND VIDEOS. IF YOU WANT YOUR ARICLE OR VIDEO TO BE CONSIDERED, PUT IT ON DIGG FIRST AND THEN PROVIDE THE LINK.

Once the top five of each has been identified, let's all sign up over at Digg and DIGG THESE LINKS TO THE TOP!!! Then FReepmail, email, and round up people from every conservative forum you can think of and encourage them to do the same!

Please place your Digg suggestions below. Once we have settled on the initial five articles and five videos, a new post with the links will appear at the top of "Breaking News" and will be kept there!!! Remember, taken together, these links need to tell a story.

So let's get off our rear-ends, bypass the MSM, and get the vote out people!!!

You are welcome to stay behind with the women and children. The rest of us will be taking the fight to the enemy.

I resemble that! I'm a 69 year-old woman and I had a digg account before this post. ;)

I have alredy "dugg" the two links I've see here.

And now, I'm pinging my "folks" to this thread.

You should all go to this page http://digg.com/users/JohnMcCain08 and click "Add Friend" at the top. That's how we conservatives can easily identify each other.

Seems to me, appears to me . . . some serious misunderstanding has occurred.

GodGunsGuts;

Is working hard to help FREEPERS get up to speed with DIGGIT.com’s

VERY POPULAR rating of online articles.

I went through 100 of the first all everything most popular articles—with about 15-16 articles per page.

Out of that 1,600 articles, THERE WAS NOT A SINGLE TRULY CONSERVATIVE PRO MCCAIN/PAILIN ARTICLE. NOT ONE.

THAT’S DUMB. THAT’S FOOLISH. FREEPERS HAVE OWNED THE POLITICAL WEB. WE ARE LOSING IT IF WE DON’T GET UP TO SPEED WITH POPULAR SITES LIKE DIGGIT.

On almost every page there was 1-3 FAWNING ALL OVER OBAMA ARTICLES USUALLY ALONG WITH PAID ADS BY OBAMA’S CREW.

imho, GodGunsGuts needs ALL THE SUPPORT HE CAN GET FROM JIM AND EVERY MODERATOR OF EVERY TYPE AND EVERY FREEPER to get as many truly truthful and accurate CONSERVATIVE articles listed at DIGGIT AND DUG BY HELPFUL FREEPERS. WE MUST. WE MUST WOO UNDECIDEDS AND WEAKLY DECIDEDS.

WE MUST. WE SIMPLY MUST.

I would hope, Jim, that some arrangement could be made until after the election to highlight this effort in every way possible at the top of every page possible.

Seems to me, ideally, there should be a page listed at the top of every FR screen easily clickable to come up with a list of links FREEPERS could immediately go to at DIGGIT.COM AND “DIGG” THE CONSERVATIVE ARTICLES TO HELP GET THEM AT THE TOP OF THE HEAP THERE.

I don’t know what it would take. But it seems to me we MUST PULL TOGETHER HERE. WE MUST DO ALL WE CAN FOR OUR BELEAGURED REPUBLIC AND CHRISTIAN WAY OF LIFE.

The global government is looming quite close enough without unwitting and misunderstanding born conflicts between FREEPERS neutering our efforts.

Thanks to each of you for all you do. I know this is not an easy bunch of cats to herd.

But can we pull together a bit more on this effort?

sorts of links for our listing of contacts like in our email contacts list.

How does that help us with FREEPER names???

How can we add a FREEPER NAME not on any other list?

...to continue your line of reasoning, then we are to find articles with digg buttons on them, reference them here, so FReepers can then jump to dgg and ‘select’ them, bumping them to the top! right? like a huge cross-referenced phone book! sounds like a good rainy day project...g’luck on the 10 test cases...I’m in (if I can get my reg working).

its simple folks. let me explain:

freerepublic is a conservative website

digg is a web 2.0 website which is basically a tool for us to get our msg out.

this means we need to connect and use our weight via the tool (digg).

all it takes is 60 seconds, make an account. we shoot fire from home (here) and control the intrawebz.lol.

we need management support though......DUmmies lurk here a lot....we need this new functionality on the backend through message. Kind of like an internal ping.

Believe me, we are on to something.

I get what your saying. FR has been instrumental in saving my sanity through this crap we call an election.

However, I do enjoy going into “enemy territory” and trying to talk some kind of sense. You never know how many seeds you can plant. You just got to go out there and throw those seeds....heck, a few may stick!

I hope any Freepers who live in high traffic areas do the same thing. Just grab a sheet of plywood and put up some lighthearted reminder of the sacrifice made by Senator McCain and maybe point out how cute Gov. Palin looks. Maybe some of those ‘undecideds’ will break our way.

How exactly does spread the word, and benefit FR?

I've read the entire thread, so far that question has not been answered.

This will benefit digg.com, I don't see any benefit for FR.

As a sidenote, TrendMicro warned me that it is a dangerous website, that was probably because of one of the popup ads, it only happened once.

it's simple. see the link below. http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2008/10/23/huffington-post-top-indy-political-blogs-for-traffic/ Arianna Huffington, as cronie as she is, has executed a web strategy for politics unanswered by the right to this date. That link shows that FR saw a decline month over month in traffic while Huffingtonpost leapfrogged drudge and FR. she does it by linking web 2.0 sites to hers as shown below: As mentioned previously, the internet is evolving, our base is strong, so my recommendation is we adapt our strategies to expand our influence.

I don't want to have anything to do with a plan that purports to help us compete with the Huffington Post and other similar leftist sites. If Free Republic is going to go down this road, I want no part of it.

If this digg.com site appears at the top of FR again, I will quit this site.

pls keep in mind, this is not competing with liberal websites for traffic.

this is about influencing the messaging that is consumed by the mainstream audiences. that’s the distinction you must understand.

this is about FR building its capacity to do so as the internet landscape has changed significantly in the last 4 yrs.

my 2 cents.

There is some publicity to conservatives on Digg who haven’t become familiar with FR.

More importantly, it provides the FR msg to undecideds on Digg.
