The Digg Effect

Recently, I posted a story on The story related to a Vidcast called Systm. The host of Systm, Kevin Rose, is also the founder of, meaning that it was going to be a hit. In fact, it was able to get to the homepage in under an hour. The story can be viewed here. Currently it has 2582 diggs. The problem was that the story’s domain name was not allowed to be submitted to digg, because it had been reported by some jokers. I got around this by creating a javascript redirect page, hosted on my own server. The stats on my server jumped, the results were crazy. With only 2000 diggs, I had 14,000 unique visitors that day.
