Digg changes its algorithm: harder to get online

Have you noticed a decrease in the number of stories on the Digg.com homepage in the past 24 hours and an increase in the quality of these stories? Digg.com has adjusted their algorithms, so in some cases, the story needs more Diggs to get to the Digg homepage. Does this mean that for sites that are not named TechCrunch, you can’t access Digg.com’s homepage right now? I also recommend reading Mr. Patel’s article on making the most of Digg, entitled “How to make the most of digg traffic.”

Have you noticed a decrease in the number of stories on the Digg.com homepage in the past 24 hours and an increase in the quality of these stories? If so, there is a reason behind the change.

Digg.com has adjusted their algorithms, so in some cases, the story needs more Diggs to get to the Digg homepage.

At Pronet Advertising, Neil Patel wrote that the new Diggs threshold for the story to reach the Digg homepage has increased from more than 30 Digg to 60 or more.

why? Patel noticed:

* Submitted too many stories and entered the front page. * Too many “friends” are digging into each other’s excavations. * The quality of the story on the homepage is declining.

Does this mean that for sites that are not named TechCrunch, you can’t access Digg.com’s homepage right now?

Do not. This simply means that more Digg members must pay attention to the title and description of a story before mining, so those who list the story to Digg may want to be more critical about what they submit and how they submit to Digg.

As for the loopholes in the new algorithm, it seems that Digg’s mission beyond technology-related news will be to reward sports and gossip sites.

Patel added:

The good news is that not all categories require 60 data before the story is posted to the home page. It seems that Digg has considered several factors, such as the number of submissions in the category, mining and time, because some categories do not require as much data before the story reaches the front page. The sports and entertainment category is two categories that don’t need to be tapped too much, because there aren’t too many people mining these types of stories, and there are very few submissions for these categories.

I also recommend reading Mr. Patel’s article on making the most of Digg (if your website still has access to Digg.com’s homepage), entitled “How to get the most out of digg traffic.”
