Google continually tweaks its search algorithm, this time penalizing websites that feature too many ads above the fold. Google reports that people were complaining when they went to a site and they had to scroll past ads to get to their content. Google also clarified by saying that sites wouldn’t be penalized for having a normal amount of ads above the fold. PandoDaily will not be affected by this, as we don’t have ads. We also don’t make money, but you can’t really penalize us for that one.
