The results of having your article, video, song or photos make the front page of the social news website, Digg.com. This often results in a server crash although many bloggers see this as a trophy.
"We just got hit by the Digg effect...15,000 hits before our server crashed!".

"My article 'Man gets eaten by man hungry penguin' got the Digg effect...over 35,000 page views in 2 hours!".
