Is there a market for a "digg" automater?

    I was thinking yesterday about this.

    Surely it wouldn't be hard to make a simple prog that connects to the net and downloads a proxy list, checks them and gets a random sample of 50-60, connects to digg through them, and diggs your article.

    Of course first time you'd have to create 50-60 accounts, but i'm sure you could automate all that apart from the captcha if you just used a spam address?

    Would people buy something like this? if so would people pay £50/$80 dollars for it?

    I'm guessing one of these has already been made? I had a pretty thorough search but nothing like this came up.

    Cheers!

    it has been made before, but failed, cause digg catch up fast on such ghost accounts and bans them.(and those ghost account were also digging other stories in order to hide their true purpose)
    The domain used to be promoted in this blackhat technique is also banned from digg, which means you can't submit other articles from it, which is also a pretty big inconvenient for those unwilling to risk a good domain name- and website.

    Ahh, i see the problem! That is pretty gash!

    I def. wouldn't want to risk that if i was a webmaster so i'll steer clear of it then!

    Cheers for the heads up - didn't know digg could ban domains, just thought it was accounts!

    I use digg normally and usually get around 80-130 diggs per submission on any topic, it's an ok source to stuff but I made a few sales via clickbank through it.

    Progs like these always get outdated pretty fast
