    Yes, Digg will now officially "nofollow" your links. They recently made a blog post on it on the Digg Blog http://blog.digg.com/?p=864.

    I don't care about this, but I do know that a lot of people used this to help their websites in search engines. My advice is to focus on creating quality content. There are shortcuts, but they won't help your website in the long term. If you make quality content, other sites will link to you and that will really help!

    I checked the popular stories on Digg, and all of them are "do follow", but even big sites are "nofollow" in the upcoming section. I think Digg just makes popular stories Do Follow, and the rest are "nofollow".

    It sucks, but people should be diversifying and building links all over. As well as building quality content, so links will build on their own.

    Digg has always been a useful source of links. What a pity.

    I can't say I'm really surprised that they did this.

    The noFollow doesn't matter, you can still use Digg for Traffic, just need to write a good content to share in Digg.

    I am wondering what took them so long to implement no follow. While the no follow sucks, there is the potential on getting some traffic from digg.

    Well, it'll surely make it harder for people to get their link more on search engines but it can also help people increase their story quality lol.

    I am wondering how many so-called seo & link spam experts are member of BHW?? By going through BHW one can easily become consultant in SEO field. May be this is another aspect of offline earning.

    Rexsky,
    You have no clue. Right?

    What you are probably referring was the frame which you saw when you logged into digg. If you logged out it was still do follow.

    But now the digg stories are nofollow even if you check after logging out. Digg was a nice source of backlink though the traffic sucked.

    I think digg is only useful to give us the traffic. I never use them to create ******** backlinks
