I've been using it to find interesting links.

The difference between Delicious and news aggregators like Reddit / Digg / HN is that the rating of links is a side-effect, not a conscious action.

As a result ranking on Delicious does not prefer yellow journalism, obscure interests or vanity displays; much like Google's ranking but small enough to not be a target for promotion through SEO.
