You famous or our famous has roll out a new DiggBar this April, 2009.

The DiggBar allows you to…
* Digg directly on the destination site: No more awkward toggling between the story page and Digg.
* Easily share stories: You can now create a shortened Digg URL to share on Twitter, Facebook or via email. You can also type before the URL of any page you’re on to create a short URL.
* Access additional analytics: See how many times a story has been viewed.
* View comments while on the story page: Clicking the ‘Comments’ button expands the DiggBar to show the top comment, latest comment, and most controversial without leaving the page.
* Discover related stories: Clicking the ‘Related’ button expands the DiggBar to highlight similar stories.
* See more stories from the same source: Clicking the ‘Source’ button expands the DiggBar to show you more Digg stories from that source site.
* Discover random stories: Click the ‘Random’ button and you’ll be brought to an entirely new, unexpected story.

Digg New URL Policy:

Digg has also updated its destination URL policy. Earlier we get a direct link to our bookmarked websites, but now you can see the address as:

Looking closer at the HTML source code of a particular page created by Digg, we can see that it has used:

<meta name="robots" content="noindex"/>
<link rel="canonical" href=""/>

We know that noindex meta prevent all robots from indexing a page on your site. And rel="canonical" doesn't work across the domains. So using rel="canonical" is useless.
Is this is going to be a great loss to SEO?
