The definition's old hat - agreed. But filter effects still exist.
What we need are facts that folks can use to determin the filters being applied to their sites, with a technical and validation foundation, irrespective of their lifecycle of their introduction point [ new or mature sites ].
Filters on new sites may be one, some or many may reoccur in the life of a website.
I don't mean to be focusing or arguing on "Words" "Titles" or "Badges" - sorry if it seems that way. Just how to identify and fix the filters - this is my focus - I think folks need to know this.
Any help and involvement would be gratefully received :)
Let's break the habit of arguments and lack of substantiated comments [ i mean it nicely ], and focus on the filters.
Put your hands up if you are willing to do some tests on some these filters over at [webmasterworld.com...]
and hopefully the result can be applied back here
May i suggest anyone with test results could greatly contribute to your fellow WebmasterWorld member colleagues.
And may you become an esteemed member , much loved by your colleagues for ever :)
