Digg Implements Nofollow to Prevent Link Spam. Partly.

3rd Sep 2009 Social Media Less than a minute to read

In a blog post published yesterday, John Quinn announced that Digg, the news and content sharing portal, is to implement nofollow in an effort to reduce the amount of spam content that is submitted to Digg.

Apparently, good quality content will still receive ‘link goodness’. I don’t know how they’re going to judge what is good content and manage this but it’ll certainly be interesting to see how it all pans out.

Now, whose bright idea was nofollow?
