This URL Has Been Reported By Users And Cannot Be Submitted At This Time


Odd, I thought... A regular reader of Pro-SEO was nice enough to email me today to tell me that when he tried to submit my blog post about SEO Myths to digg he would get the error "This URL has been reported by users and cannot be submitted at this time".

Now, I'm not that bothered about digg not wanting my blog posts, It's not like im desperate for their traffic, But it did get me wondering. The error stated that the URL (i assume they mean domain, Not URL) has been "reported by users". So why on earth would digg users report my blog to digg and why would digg want to prevent people submitting my blog posts?

I strive to produce unique content that is either useful or interesting. If i look at a blog post and it is neither interesting not useful i don't publish it.

I must admit, I have to smile when i think about the number of articles written by me which have been published on Slashdot compared to the video of a woman jiggling her boobs that made it to the front page of digg the other day.
Looking at it like that, Maybe digg have done me a favour.

Well the problem is obvious isn't it. Let's see you jiggle your boobs. I'm sure you'll make it to the front of Digg in an hour if you can. Wasn't that why the internet was created in the first place?
