Digg.com is one of the website that’s very useful to drive your traffic. They also have some tools, which are very useful, we call Digg Button. As you see on the left top of each post. It use for integrate digging in your site then allow your readers to digg your stories from your blog finally they’ll summit the stories to Digg.

I’ll show you how to put Digg button on the right or left of the top for each post (For blog that do the Automatic Thumbnail and Read More Function).

Follow steps as below (Put on Top Left);

1. Go to Layout --->Edit HTML in your Blogger Dashboard

2. Back up your existing Template before making any changes!

3. Make sure to check the "Expand Widget Templates" box

4. Find this code <data:post.body/>

5. Copy the exactly code as below;

<div style="float:left;"><script type="text/javascript">
digg_url = 'WEBSITE_URL';
<script src="http://digg.com/tools/diggthis.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

*Don’t forget to change WEBSITE_URL to Your URL e.g. http://YourDomain.com

6. Put the above code before <data:post.body/>

<div style="float:left;"><script type="text/javascript">
digg_url = 'WEBSITE_URL';
<script src="http://digg.com/tools/diggthis.js" type="text/javascript"></script><data:post.body/>

7. Save it

Remark: If you’d like to change it to the left, just change this code from <div style='float:right;'> to <div style='float:left;'>

If your blog doesn't use Automatic Thumbnail and Read More Function you have to find this code <div class='post-header-line-1'/> then put the following code as below;

<div style="float:left;"><script type="text/javascript">
digg_url = 'WEBSITE_URL';
<script src="http://digg.com/tools/diggthis.js" type="text/javascript"></script><div class='post-header-line-1'/>

That’s it!!! Same way as the above how to move it to left or right on the top of the post.
