The new Digg was released, there is a high peak in traffic, but soon after, Images gets a boost, perhaps of the many stories that ended Digg Reddit site to protest the new version.

Your really detailed analysis of these data, it is true, you must be very hard to work. Thank you for sharing. My recent post Three Important Tips when Buying Combination Pliers

Thanks for a great article. I am confused. Most of the RSS aggregators in the Link Builders Toolkit and the free list especially are focus on blog content.

I've been a member of Digg and Reddit for years and used to find Digg superior in every way. I've spent less and less time there since they rolled out v4--if only because the site has turned into a giant news aggregator and the conversations I once enjoyed so much are no longer taking place. That said, I think the new site is speedier and better organized than the old version. I don't think this will spell an end for Digg, but I think they'll have an entirely different user base in the future.

I don't understand why? The new version of DIGG is so clear and a lot more convenient to use, unlike the highly annoying Reditt that shuts down after the third attempt to reproduce the unclear letters' mambo jumbo, just to announce that you have submitted too many links. And this crap is superior to clear and organized Digg?

This is just evidence that sometimes management needs to get to know their user base on a more personal level. People on Digg tend not to like corporations or big business, why they would conclude that it is a good idea to allow sites to directly stream their content to Digg (and therefore to the front page based on their size) is beyond me. I think this puts the nail in the coffin, I imagine it will be a downhill slope for Digg as this shows a huge gap in understanding between the users and ownership.

Digg is definitely dead. There is so much less activity on website and it is only going to lose traffic, not gain more. Top of the top stories have only 400 digg and it used to be thousands of diggs before. I quit Digg, for example, not the same website as before. I don't know what they were thinking.
