New Digg submission process does not like MS ASP.NET

I was trying to submit this hunting video to digg today and was told

“Your URL appears to be redirecting a bit too much for our tastes.”

This is just a normal ASP.NET webpage that uses web parts. ASP.NET does not work like most web programming. They do a lot of things for you. They really like to use 302 redirects to show pages.

Digg has decided that a site using ASP.NET web parts is spam I guess. This site has worked hard to make a video and picture sharing community for people into outdoor sports like hunting and fishing and now their members can’t share things they upload to digg. I think what digg did was try to stop spammers but what they did was block legit websties.

    i just tried submitting a thread in my forum which i found really funny and digg are saying Your URL appears to be redirecting a bit too much for our tastes.even for that. I am using mod rewrite to rewrite to search engine friendly urls for a vbulletin forum but i dont think that should really count as a redirect. other than that there is nothing bad going on on that page.

    I looked at your forum and you got some things going on. When I go to a link I get a 301 redirect and adds s=a315239dbdf6287284206dc0578bd0c8& to the end of the url. For some reason I can’t get it to do it a 2nd time.

    In your Zoints SEO options, set Redirect all old URLs to their new URL to No

    digg will work then.

    Digg is a popular social network. It can prove very effective for website owners to boost their website traffic. A professional Digg submission service can help them get the desired results with this social network.

    Firstly, go to Digg’s website and sign up if you do not already have an account. Then go through the new submission process. It will give you the choice of an article or video. If you are looking to drive traffic to your website, simply input your website URL into this box. You are also given the chance to choose a title for your submission.

    The only way they are going to do that is if they enjoyed the initial post I submitted to Digg. When a Digg submission of mine hits front page, it is just as or more important to me how many other of my articles are clicked.
