    Im just wondering seen as ive seen things on the front page of digg with only 30/40 diggs and I know it bring a horde of traffic.
    SEMrush
    Couldnt someone just make like 50 differnt user accounts, keep logging into them all and digg the same thing over and over? I dont really see why this wouldnt work :)

    Well, I'm sure they check on IP for each user so you'll have to somehow ensure that each user uses a unique IP. It would also raise some flags if all those 50 users just vote on one particular story from another user.

    It is possible but the different IP requirement makes it close to impossible for an ordinary person.

    People cheat Digg on a daily basis by forming networks (with users in different places, cities or even countries) and digging each other stories...

    What you see on the Digg mainpage is heavily manipulated, by Digg's Top 100 users.

    Digg is just a big cheat box where the lucky ones get good traffic. Its no longer a place where you get the hottest pages..

    It's easy to "cheat" by craeting/joining a digg exchange forum such as the BST forum here

    I agree that the quality of stories that make it to the front page has decreased. But, you don't have to cheat the system to make it to the front page. I know there are plenty of groups and programs that can give you a lot of diggs, but receiving a lot of diggs does not mean you will make it to front page, such as if you get 100 diggs in a short amount of time may not push you to the front page.
