If you’re a n00b in the SEO world, you may not know about the Florida Update–basically, it was the single day in history when Google rolled out a new algo and thousands of SEOs said to each other, “Dammit, Google finally got smart.”
Well, as the latest Digg update rolled out, thousands of SMOs/linkbaiters reacted by saying–angrily, long-windedly, and periphrastically–”Dammit, Digg finally got smart.” (See a concise summary of the new changes at SEL.)
The good news is, we SMOs & linkbaiters still have dozens of other social media traffic sources, which, as long as they stay “medium size”, won’t roll out anything like Digg’s Florida Update. Meanwhile, a lot of the heavy users leaving Digg will juice the membership at alternatives like Mixx and Tweako. No need to cry or get angry. Come up with a Plan B, move on, evolve. Digg had peaked anyway.
