A DigitalPoint Forums thread discusses how "getting digged" will affect your AdSense click-through rate (CTR) and earnings for that time period.
Digg.com often will send a user base that is anti-ads. Digg users are most likely the most blind to ads, and Google ads. If you read some of the comments in the thread, you will notice that most enjoy getting digged, but the bottom line with AdSense is not that much of a difference. Here are some quotes;
Last week I had 10k for 2 days from digg.com but the CTR was only 0.01, only positive thins is you getting alot backlinks thats it.
I'm getting farked once and i get 27K of unique on 1 day and got my adsense increase about 3 to 4 dollar but i like free backlink more, looking to get more farked!
It would beat gambling on Digg and even if you did get on the front page, the traffic would be so untargetted it would probably be a waste of bandwidth if nothing else, although it may generate some links for you I guess.
