Data has emerged from Hitwise showing the sites that receive the most traffic from Digg.

Despite Digg users being mainly US based, UK websites take up 3 of the top 5 places.

The Telegraph is in second place with a 1.39% share, way ahead of the Daily Mail in 3rd. Hitwise argue that the reason for the Telegraphs rise is a Digg widget but to me the answer is simple.

The top sites are catering for Digg users, publishing the news earlier and doing everything better than the rest.
