How to block DiggDigg SucksDigg traffic is worthless
 
 

You've reached this page because the site you were trying to visit now blocks visitors from Digg and other social media sites. 

The users of sites such as Digg, Netscape, Reddit and StumbleUpon openly endorse Ad Block Plus, a plug-in that blocks advertisement on web sites, and are well known for providing no value to the sites they visit. Software that blocks all advertisement is an infringement of the rights of web site owners and developers. Numerous web sites exist in order to provide quality content in exchange for displaying ads, Digg users who don't click on these ads are stealing bandwidth without paying for it and website owners deserve a method to block this unauthorized bandwith theft.

Since social media sites do not allow website owners a method for excluding content and do not obey robots.txt law, abiding webmasters are forced to block all users from social media sites. Demographics have shown that not only are Digg and other social media users a somewhat small and insignificant percentage of the internet, they actually are even smaller in terms of online spending, therefore blocking these users seems to have only minimal financial drawbacks, whereas ending resource theft has tremendous financial rewards for honest, hard-working website owners and developers..Some search engine optimisation people might disagree but I say screw them.

If you wish to view the site you came from we suggest stopping using social media sites and finding the resources through Google instead.

Sitepoint.com—Digg Users 3 Times Less Likely to Click Ads Than Google Users

Digg users don’t click on ads like traditional visitors do and especially not as much as traffic from search engines. As we all know users are becoming more and more banner/ad blind and no one more so than the tech/geek crowd which is the primary audience of Digg.
