It’s nice when one of your posts is submitted to a social site.
It’s even nicer if it is voted, so I use a cool pipe from engtech to monitor Digg and Reddit submissions of my articles. This gives me the opportunity to vote while the stories are still hot.
If you want to go one step further, you can combine this great pipe with some feed-to-im service, like feedcrier, and you’ll be able to be notified of your site submission in seconds.francesco mapelli
As you may know, digg recently unbanned a lot of domains, and www.mapelli.info was amongst them.
They claimed they have improved their algorithm to easily detect spammy content, and that there’s no need to ban domains now.
What I think is that digg automatically sets the buried flag for “untrusted” domains.
Here’s some evidence of this theory, and a brief explanation:francesco mapelli
The name is Spotplex, and the twist is “Trafficracy”.francesco mapelli
From the official digg blog, by Kevin Rose:
I also want to point out a couple of important changes to the way Digg blocks URLs that have been reported by our users repeatedly as SPAM or that violate the Digg Terms of Service. We have tweaked some systems so that Digg is now able to be much more granular in the way it blocks offending content, so that Digg doesn’t necessarily need to block entire domains or subdomains. Apologies to any sites we’ve inconvenienced with our previous system.francesco mapelli
