    I wonder if selecting a catagory for each link addition (sports, music, health, etc) would be a better idea, since it appears that content related links are far better than non-related ones.

    Any opinions?

    Already planned for the future (when there are enough sites to make it feasible).

    That is the problem that we see at the moment is that we get Teenchat ads appearing on food sites - the last thing we need!

    So a filtered system would be good and would assist us in rolling it out further

    I agree. Let's all hope that many new sites sign up, fill up many categories and allow Shawn to launch this feature.

    It'd be great if your own Coop links did not show up on your own site too...

    Shawn

    Are there enough sites yet to accommodate categories ?

    Perhaps ppl could select an individual category to which thier site belongs, then a set of target categories they'd like to appear in.

    I've been hearing chatter recently about auth/hub sites losing rank because unthemed IBL's start outweighing themed IBLs. Apparently more pronounced with G's most recent activity.

    It's just the 'chatter' is a little too frequent to ignore and it worries me a touch. I'm also hearing PR is now augmented in a similar fashion where IBL's are all pointing to the same page (except where varying anchors/URL's are pointing to internal pages etc - your network fits well there) :)

    How are the plans ?

    Cheers,

    JL.

    I think there are around 800 now? I suggest that each link be allowed to join a specific category.

    If it is possible this would be good - as I said earlier we have a real problem with chat rooms on our food sites - it is the last thing we need - as it is our natural food and good image that we wish to portray - I have left the ads up for the moment as the volume where it is is small - but as we develop these sites we need to exclude "problems" for us.

    Well, lets get busy and refer lots of people to the ad-network, so Shawn can go ahead with the plans for categories. :)

    If there are 200 sites in the network, I don't think that is nearly enough to split up into categories. I would much rather have links on 200 unrelated websites than links on 5 or 10 sites.

    No, because each site could be promoting 5,10, 50, 100 different sites.

    I'm sure that themed links would be better then non-themed but how much? The reason I ask is from what I gather from the sleeping bag thread/test being done over in the "All Other Tools" forum has done rather well with few if any links being what would be considered themed. Maybe I'm missing something though. I didn't read all 1278 posts in the thread.

    I'm not real fond of some of the ads that show up on my site either just as I'm sure some are not happy with mine because of the type of site it is but I'd much rather have the potential of it being picked up and counted from 800 or however many sites are in the network rather then just a few. Just MHO :)

    It such a good Idea I'm suprised nobody has thought of it before. Thanks for using the cliche "Thinking out of the box".

    Now that enough for praise, get to work!

    Many of the sites are very small, with very low weights- Im assuming a large number of the sites are only promoting one category.

    But there are a good number of sites with decent weight... I'm not sure if my weight would be considered good, but I have 6 different ads running, and I'm sure they all get decent weight.

    How many different categories would the ads fall into? Are they all different topics? I'm running about 8 different categories, but Im looking at the ads and not seeing a whole lot of adversity yet. Shawn's Financial related ads (WU), Sports, and Game related at the moment.

    I'm assuming when this is created, it will not be narrowed down (for example) by specific Sport or Hobby like DMOZ is, rather to "Sports" and "Hobbies".

    -- Shawn, any stats on this stuff?
