It looks like people have extreme opinions about it. Here success lies in being at the first page of the site. If your content is on the first page you are sure to expect hundreds if not thousands free visitor at your site.

It is worth giving it a try as it does not require any kind of monetary investment. Yes it does require time to invest.

One can submit content to Digg, and then rely on other people to vote for it. That is what Digg is; to be on the first page one needs fairly good number of votes. There is a tough competition here. If you can get someone else to submit the content, that is better, and will give you a higher chance of getting the votes.

Key is to attract the reader's attention quickly. This means that having an interesting headline and quality content. Readers are likely to read limited number of articles only. One needs to give them a compelling reason to read.

Focus on topics which are current and hot right now, how to know which topics are hot and which are not? One way is to go through newspaper front page or television news. Once you have identified the topic, do some research about it, and create content on the topic. Make sure you do not copy paste something from any newspaper or news channel, you may end up violating copy right laws.

Other way is to go to yahoo, MSN and look for most searched news or topic, than create content around it. You can even ask for others opinion also. You are likely to get higher votes if you follow this,

Also remember that readers are more likely to vote for something which can solve any of their problems or add any value to their knowledge level. Key here is to know something about a product category which others may be interested to know. So if you write keeping readers in mind you will certainly get higher votes and ranking on first page, which will in turn bring free traffic to your website.
