    I like it (from what i can see). Considering your mindset regarding SEO should be "numer 1 or nothing", this looks like less links above the fold which will focus even more traffic to the top 3.

    Exactly my thought. I think it will be very beneficial if you're ranking in the top three.

    I like it, with ads though probably only top 1-3 will be seen so get back to backlinking :)

    From a user standpoint I think it looks much cleaner/better.

    im with you guys...i think that it is beneficial for SEO

    however, for the user, it forces you to sift through more and more pages

    sure, most users only look at the top 3, but i prefer content over cleanliness

    I think this is crap... too much white space... too much crap to scroll through when actually trying to find something...

    Oh and it reminds me of Yahoo...

    This reminds me of myspace. How they got all "advanced"..... and well.. bye bye myspace, hello facebook.....

    Gotta remember too. A lot of people with laptos increase the screen size +125% Taking out even more of the pages above the fold.

    I don't like it: less traffic to my long tails that aren't ranking #1 but are in the top 10, and from a surfer's perspective, more scrolling to get to the rest of the links.

    Hopefully it will drive a few more clicks to Adwords though.
