The word on the streets is that Diggers hate SEOs. While this may be true in the main, SEO stories still make the front page. Diggers have websites and would like to know how to organise their web pages in such a way that Google loves them. Nothing wrong with that. I think some Diggers have a misguided view on what SEO actually is.
Sure, some people use SEO to serve up empty pages filled with nothing but Adsense or regurgitated information. Some people use hammers to kill people, but you don’t put all carpenters in prison.
SEO does not cause spam, spammers cause spam.
I have included some metrics as I collected the top SEO stories on Digg. I will leave it to you to interpret, I’m not so sure if the metrics provide any useful information. Although it is interesting to note the Technorati rankings in correlation with other metrics such as Alexa.
The top Diggs are thin on the ground, I’m sure if I compared it with a different keyword such as “CSS”, there would be a huge difference.
Most SEO centric stories do not make it, but as the Digg crowd matures maybe some will.
