    I just came here running after checking my weight. It was a drop from 29,000+ to 3000 for me. Scared the hell out of me. :)

    I really hope I am not penalized for not running may ads sitewide, as I simply cannot get them to work on my html pages. After countless efforts via this board, it simply seemed like it was just impossible.

    Dropped from 1.2M to around 220,000... Overall it looks like these new changes will increase my overall impressions :)

    And Shawn was afraid people would freak.

    Not on this forum. Never happen!

    Imagine how I felt when my 1 went to a 0. You guys think you got it bad...

    Well, I'm sure glad I read this post.

    I would also like to take a moment and thank Shawn for all the great work he has put into not just the coop but all the other great tools I and other's use on a daily basis. You have made my life a million times easier ;)

    I could not agree more. I use the tools more than once per day. Logging into the forum is the first thing I do in the morning.

    You do a dremendous job Shawn.

    I think mine dropped by a factor of 10 across the board. Was wondering what happened :)
    Yesterday my weight seemed to be bouncing all over the place, Today it's rock steady (just a lot lower) - now I know why.
    I do have one question. How do all you people deal with pages which don't have the ads on.
    Each article on one of my sites has a print view (hence no ads - it just allows the article to be printed on it's own). It would be nice if we could think of a way to tell the validator about these types of pages (perhaps a special meta or something).

    Best way to asses new weight is wait and see how impression change after few days. Now it is nice we have impression tool.

    All those who were just about to offer their site with X weight must be in for a shock... When people new to it reference it to previous sales they might think they're being scammed :D

    I'll update the FAQ tonight. Thanks for keeping me busy :D

    The ad network works on the google api. So it selects all pages from google. Ban google from your printable pages (it's duplicate content anyway so you'll be doing yourself a favour) then the ad-network tracker wont find any pages without ads and you're fine.

    Good luck

    I like the smaller numbers. Before when I distributed my ads I'd be like what's 20% of 52,000 + 40% of 33,000 - driving me crazy since I can never find my calculator...

    Huh? Now you need to divide from 1297 or 384 or similar weird numbers... I liked the other system better.

    Mine went from 202,000 to 44,000. Thought I might post numbers, for those trying to find a pattern to divide by. Not sure that will be possible with caps removed.

    Might take a while for us to figure out what a site is worth (when buying/selling) on these new numbers.

    You obsessed nerds! :D

    Wouldn't be surprised to see a new blog entry on Shawn's blog about a lawsuit from a Co-op member sueing him for health implications...
