Sphinn It

We’ve been Sphunn!

6 Spanking New WordPress Plugins You Haven’t Seen by K-IntheHouse made it to the front page of sphinn. This sent a nice flow of traffic. It was only the second article I submitted to sphinn, I just found this website. (not to mention the article also got 11 delicious saves, as well as several stumbles!)

What is Sphinn?

Sphinn is another digg like site. Just like the rest you vote for the articles you like.

Categories include:

  • Google
  • Yahoo
  • Microsoft
  • Search Marketing
  • Social Media
  • Online Marketing
  • Searching

With “blogging” somewhere in the subcategories.

I’ve already seen a few familiar faces on sphinn like Andy Beard and DoshDosh. It generally takes 10+ votes to hit the front page. If you have a worthy article, definitely submit it and give it a try to making the front page. We saw several 100 visitors from being on the front page.

Add Sphinn to your Blog

I went the route of adding sphinn to our feed flares on feedburner.

To do so all you have to do is go to and copy that to a notepad and name it “sphinn.xml” From there go to your FTP program and upload the file to your server.

Then login to your feedburner account and go to the optimize tab. Under feedflare go to “add new flare”.

Enter the URL http://yourdomain/sphinn.xml Of course replacing “your domain” with… your domain.

From there you can add sphinn directly to your website or just to your feed.

Now you are ready to be Sphunn!
