How to Buy Votes and Get On Digg’s Frontpage

Posted on 2nd March, 2007

Here’s some interesting story from a Wired reporter doing some investigative journalism.

The reporter created a boring and poorly written blog dedicated to showing picture of crowds and managed to get to the digg’s frontpage.

She paid User/Submitter to digg her blog and the natural organic digg followed suit.

It’s an interesting story worth reading.

    The digg crowd does tend to act like sheep. And even with all the changes they’ve implemented its still a small group of influential users that control the content on the front page.

    You know what’s funny? Wired News is owned by CondéNet, which also owns Digg competitor, reddit.

    I was laughing my head off when I read this. But that’s Wisdom of Crowds for you. Good ol horde mentality. 🙂
