Digg Now Using No Follow Selectively

One of the major advantages of Digg was the do follow attribute on links there. You submit your story, you get a back link

Just read on the digg blog that digg has decided to put the no follow attribute on some of the links on the site

These include
  • Links in comment
  • Submit that do not meet a certain threshold in popularity
  • Links in user profiles

Obviously the question now is, what are they using as a measure of popularity?

  • Is it the number of diggs a story gets
  • Or the number of times the link is clicked on

Still a little unclear but I'll let you know if there is any further news
