    Yep, I made a mistake. I've used StubleUpon and Delicious with success. But I just signed up for Digg today. I Dugg my site and my press release.

    Here's where I made the vital mistake. I copy/pasted my site headline and body that I "dugg" into the same on the press release that I dugg after. I fully meant to edit it so they wouldn't be duplicates. I got distracted and forgot to alter things before I hit submit. Though the URLs were different, I got flagged as spam and both were blacklisted.

    The destruction of the press release I can eat, but how the heck can I redigg my site, which is far more important to be dugg!

    I post this so that you don't suffer the same fate and to see if anyone knows how to help me out of my first major online marketing bind in years [​IMG]

    Thanx!

    Just find a different social bookmarking website - there are a ton of them out there.

    Quoting: Newbie ShieldI got flagged as spam and both were blacklisted.

    Was this done by admin, or were you "Buried" by visitors / viewers? In either case, have you tried to make an appeal to Digg's administration staff, and explain your slight, and certainly understandable & excusable, submission faux pas? I'm sure you are not the first to be in this situation, so upon realizing that it was not your intention to double-Digg they should offer you a chance to re-submit.

    I looked at the Digg site & it seems pretty cool. So please keep us posted on your progress there, so we can all go and "Digg" your submission and get you in the top 10!! [​IMG]

    Best of Luck!

    I got burried. I guess I misspoke when I said I got blacklisted. What I did was go back and undig the duplicate. But it's too late since no one dug me...everyone spotted the duplicate content.

    Hey, I'm all for that. You'd have to sign up. Dig your site. Then dig anyone's site you want. Mine is in my sig. It's supposed to be one of the very most effective social bookmarking sites on the net. Perhaps we should get together a crew and dig each other's sites. I don't see anything unethical about that. PM me if you would like to participate. Sign up for dig first though.

    Great idea Kalien!

    Hi Brooke! Thanx and thanx pcwork.
