    Yeah, right...browser size update my ass. I'm sure this is just another update incognito. I guess he thought linking to a decade-old browser size tool would help validate this.

    I feel like he just sits in his office pulling random algorithm update "excuses" out of a hat and giggles like a school girl whenever he sees people posting about it.

    I've found one website that has this all over the place. about 77% above the fold is adverts and the rest of it is just a directory. I've reported it to Matt Cutts and hope he deindexes it.

    (yeah - I know - how funny - I'm talking about Google itself, one big massive above the fold advertising area slapped over a massive outbound link directory...yes I know you knew that before I said it, but frick - what a crock of hypocritcal arse holes Google are - and that smug twat MC doesn't even acknowledge the irony or running his massive paid link farm that offers ZERO other than other peoples regurgitated work. 100% duplicated content on a directory full of adverts, you couldn't make this shit up)

    really? was that constructively necessary fella lol

    im just here to discuss these recent changes with fellow BHWer's who might of been affected.

    with that said, I still made a sale today & my video actually has been bringing me 1 sale of a $10 product every 48 hours. So even though its not getting crazy traffic it's still making me a small amount of money even siting on page 2. So If i scale this properly i could be banking a decent amount of money per day.

    I can't speak for everybody else but my "0 hits" are still making me a profit and im just trying to work towards increasing it.

    Sorry but this is a BS. Even Google.com didn't respect their rules.
    Google results are full of ads (adsense blocs). And they don't have much content "above-the-fold". Look at this example for the query "achat tablette pas cher" (it's in french and it means "buy cheap tablet", credit for this example goes to Olivier Duffez) :

    achat-tablette-pas-cher-2.jpg

    Testing this witht the "above-the-fold" tool from Google labs :

    test-browser-size-serp-google-2.jpg

    This means over 85% of users see one organic result only !!!
    @Matt Cutts and the G team: you should respect YOUR rules before asking the webmasters to respect them.

    I guess we need to make 100% text based sites with no images so all content it loaded above the fold.

    IM all the way.
    Our traffic is UP for the day. But that could EASILY be a normal fluctuation; it is usually a good day for traffic regardless. Our rankings LOOK the same right now, so we'll have to see. At the very least, I don't think my penalised site is doing any worse :p
