Digg Algorithim Has Been UpdatedOur countless coverage of Digg.com continues with the news that Digg has updated their algorithm for promoting stories. Kevin Rose posted it on the Digg blog. While it is nothing that we haven't told you before it is interesting non the less.
digg now takes several factors into consideration when promoting stories (other than just total number of diggs): story source (is it a blog re-post, or the original story), user history, traffic levels of the category the story falls under, and user reports. This should help us eliminate some off-topic content and SPAM. The only change you might notice is that stories will no longer be promoted at 15 diggs. Some will be promoted with less, others with more. digg on.
