The above-the-fold tweak is an interesting one.. I wonder if WebmasterWorld was hit by this? I look at Alexa and it seems to have run through it without a problem.
Being objective, I really don't see much information above the fold when I visit this site. It's a very well respected site, I know that... But you need to scroll down to see anything useful. I would think this is a prime candidate for a Google slapping.
I point this out to demonstrate the complexity of Google. We lost 10% of our Google traffic back on January 19th, we have nearly 400 words above the fold.
When I visit this thread, I see 76 (and it's repeated on each subsequent page).
