CONNECT WITH HBB ON SOCIAL MEDIA
For people who were not aware about Digg, it is a place for people to discover and share the best news, entertainment and videos from anywhere on the web. To my surprise many famous blogs and websites were banned by Digg and the interesting part is, the mistake is not made from the site owner’s side. If someone diggs your site’s stories in a manner it gets banned, it will be banned. That makes like anyone can ban your blog. I can’t understand the way Digg revolves.
This is what Digg says,
“When submitted stories are consistently reported as spam and users complain via our feedback email about submission spam, we ban the domain. The domain will not be unbanned. The domain would consistently get reported as spam otherwise. Please review our FAQ (digg.com/faq) for more information.”
Few words from Keith D’Souza, Techie Buzz, “I am not sure why they banned it (TB), but it looked like each and every article from the site was being dugg. I later got in touch with Digg support and got the issue resolved.”
Below I mentioned some famous sites banned by Digg.
