    So I checked on a keyword and my site ranked #2 on google for it and also sub categorized my other blog posts with that keyword in it. I added a "Digg this post" thing and was dug. Now instead of my website ranking for that keyword, Digg now took its place with my website now nowhere to be found.
    Is this a duplicate content issue?

    I wouldn't worry about it. Just keep building backlinks to your site and your site will come back up. I think it's just a coincidence.

    No, definitely not a duplicate content issue.

    It's probably the Google dance - you can be high in the rankings for a short time but then you need to keep proving your site is worth it to get Google to put you back near the top.

    I assume the digg page at the top is your digg page? If so then at least people will be clicking on it & get to your page pretty quickly.

    Keep building backlinks as Serpico suggests.

    :)

    Yeah, the digg page is my post. It wasn't like digg took my spot a week later...i'm talking about ten minutes later. Swapped my website with the digg post. Just thought it was strange.
