    Digg is NOFOLLOW rel=”nofollow”

    Digg has added NOFOLLOW rel=”nofollow” on External Links on external links from comments, user profiles and story pages below a certain threshold of popularity

    Wow... Digg changes their dofollow/nofollow policy again... this is good to know!

    thanks for notifying us! I wonder what the "certain threshold" is. maybe if a story gets more than 100 diggs the links will be do follow?

    I started to notice that the links were nofollow and have been wondering what was going on.

    I'm wondering if they went back and changed all the old links to noflollow?

    It may be that you need to be a power user?

    Despite this news, digg is still a good internet marketing strategy to use. It attracts more visitors as well.

    Digg is only good if you optimize the anchor text to hit a long tail.

    Are you posting pages that other Digg users will find interesting? Are you participating in the Digg community to make your account more trusted?
