Grrr.. Banned by Digg

    My domain's been banned by Digg for some time for no reason.

    I'd been using pnope.com to get around the ban, but as my latest story shows, it's no good.

    I got to 33 Diggs and made the homepage, but after that my story was buried. Apparently the Digg mods have caught on to URL redirects.

    Banned because you are consistently being buried as being spam or lame. That's the point.

    How do you encourage getting Digged without spamming? Besides the Digg link I mean?

    Exactly. If its digg worthy, it will happen.
    Make some friends on Digg with similar interests. If they like your story, it will give you those extra few diggs and their friends will notice too and it goes from there.

    This is extremely important.

    The frustrating thing I've noticed recently is that the controversial crap I submit seems to outperform content I've spent a long time on. So be controversial and good at the same time, heh.

    I am not sure what you mean by url redirects. I assume these diggs were natural and not forced, incentized. You allude to mods "catching on" so sounds like something fishy:confused:

    Yes, I was banned from Digg and had been using URL redirects like pnope.com to get around the Digg. My site has been on the homepage of Digg.com 5 times and Diggers generally like what I write. However, I was banned after exposing a Digg cheating service on my site and submitting it to Digg.

    A lot of other people have been using pnope.com to submit banned URLs under. Now mods must be looking at the URLs of stories and if it says pnope, they're burying it.
