It’s obvious that not everybody is equally happy about the recent changes at Digg. While Technorati shows an increase in blog posts about Digg, it’s weird to see that only one negative post made it to the front page. And it wasn’t even a really negative post.
So what happened to all those other Digg criticizing posts, because I can’t imagine that this was the only one. Well, they got buried. Apparently, The Digg Police only wants positive posts to make it to the front page. Want to know how much posts about the redesign got buried? Take a look at these images.
Without all buried stories, 241 pages with stories about “new Digg”show up.
But with all buried stories included, Digg’s search function returns 323 pages. Over 80 pages with 10 stories suddenly appear. Because searching for “new Digg” stories does not only return stories about the redesign, it’s more likely that around 750 stories about the New Digg got buried. Including quality stories with sometimes over a hundred diggs.
UPDATE: This post got buried as well…
