We have however seen a number of instances where Sphinn has been referred to as an easy source of authority links. Although we do remove as much spam and off topic posts as possible, some posts are still made with very loose Internet Marketing relevance.
As a result, we will be making a change over the next week whereby stories failing to reach the homepage (going "Hot") will get nofollowd. I see this as being a controversial move, as sometimes good stories fail to receive the attention they deserve, whilst poor linkbait can sometimes hit the homepage. We do however see this move as offering more advantages than disadvantages, especially with features planned in the near distant future.
As with all features introduced to Sphinn, we can reverse the changes where necessary. Features such as Desphinn have proved successful so far, and we hope to introduce more filtering without a detrimental effect on usability and community participation.
We want Sphinn to become the perfect Internet Marketing destination as much as the rest of you, and will strive to do whatever possible in order to ensure this quality and cohesion.
We look forward to your comments on this move.
