Rumormonger: Is Google about to swallow up Digg?

"But we hear Mayer is pushing hard for an acquisition of Rose's Digg, for a price below $200 million."

I truly feel Google is about to buy Digg, in fact I am betting my last dollar on it and my latest product about social bookmarking sites and how to use them correctly is all about that.

I have been testing how Google ranks blogs and what credit is given when you get 100+ Diggs or a good positive vote ratio on a number of social sites.

I even went so far as to get a nobody blog ranked #1 under one of my prime search terms, outranking my own blog just to prove I could do it.

So, this tells me Google is testing Digg to see if they want to roll them into Google in any number of ways.

I will go way out on a limb and say that I expect to see "digg this" buttons next to our search results soon.
