If digg are adding no index to the pages, doesn't that mean that the linked sites get no link love whatsoever?

Who care about SEO? With your website on the front page of Digg you will get dozens of thousands of visitors. Even the best SEO ever can't do that.

Tom, have you ever been linked on Digg? I've had about 15 sites (not counting blog articles) there in the last year along.

Digg users do NOT click ads, buy stuff, or even leave comments on your own blog articles. The only major value of getting on Digg was that in the next few days you'd see lots of traffic coming from the hundreds of smaller sites that also linked to you. This traffic clicked adds at a slightly higher rate, but the SEO benefit was huge.

Now that users can't even see my real URL, there's no SEO benefit.

I'm surely not going to complain about being on Digg anymore – if it happens great – but I'm not going to do anything special to try to get there, as now the only thing being on Digg will do for me is increase my bandwith with the slight chance that I might make an extra $0.30 from ads.

What is the official way to disable the toolbar on each page? I email the "report a bug" and raised hell and they turned off on my account but if Iogged out the toolbar is back.

I can't find the setting they used to turn it off in my profile. Why don't they just expose the switch in users profiles and turn it off by default. I thought that Kevin Rose knew better than to put other peoples content in a frame and slap his logo on other people's content.

You guys are stirring up a lot of dust over nothing.
