    I posted a link on Digg.com. Then I viewed the html displaying the link... it had a nofollow tag:
    rel="dc:source nofollow d315viM" :confused:

    Looks like maybe digg.com don't help getting backlinks... Hope I'm wrong about this...

    it'll still get your site visited by gbot insanely fast...and you'll get syndicated on sites with ******** links that pull from digg...

    Chill out with the nofollow/******** thing...Digg helps u a lot, u just should lay back and chill, dont worry if some links are nofollow, i usually dont care about nofollow, it still counts as a backlink

    Most links, either do-follow or nofollow will help, just make sure you have a varied source of backlinks so it looks natural

    Google still credits you for no-follow links... all it NOT does is follow your link from that "no follow" site. People are so mis-informed when it comes to backlinks. Its called a backlink for a reason!

    But yeah... keep submitting to digg.com... the traffic alone is worth it!

    PS: - There is a guy on here that used USFreeAds to rank first page for a hot niche. That btw is a nofollow site too... yet Google credited him greatly for his posts. GoogleBots are getting fine tuned everyday!

    Digg.com changed their policy about ******** back links and you can't get ******** backlinks from digg anymore but jut like agentk007 said, you should keep submitting to digg and try to make it to the first page.

    If you make it to the first page you can get thousands of visitors in just one day.

    Digg has been no-follow for a while now.

    For the sake of your business, you should really make it a point to pay attention to what all the major sites and the search engines are doing.
