Let’s say you are among the many Weight Watchers members who were given a special gift by Weight Watchers. It is their “Color Coupon”. They have literally taken your email address and sent you an email with a link to a special page. You see it says: “You’ve been a loyal customer to us. We are happy to give you the opportunity to find a new color today”.
This is an example of one of the many Color Coupons you can receive from Weight Watchers, or one of the many interactive weight loss programs they offer. If you do not know how to read a color chart, just picture a bar for each weight loss goal. Each color represents a different goal. For example, if you were hoping to lose a pound each week, you might click on “Lose a pound”, or something similar.
If you look at the above example, it looks like the Weight Watchers charts are color coordinated. But is this really true? Have I been getting a new my WWW color plan this month? Can’t I just keep the same one I’ve had for so long? Is it possible that I’ve been switched to the new color plan? Here’s my answer.
The above example is a graphic representation of how Weight Watchers Plans by Color is used. If you have a subscription, you may notice there is a link to “my WWW Weight Watchers”. If you click on this, you will be taken back to the Weight Watchers homepage. When you click on this page, you will be taken to the Weight Watchers charts. Usually this is where the Weight Watchers Plans by Color is found.
Now, if you compare this to the My WWW Weight Watchers site, you’ll see that the links have changed. Instead of going to “my WWW weight watchers” and going to the “charts” section, you can now click on “My WWW Weight Watchers”. Now you’ll be taken to a new page where you can find your weight watchers diet plan, email, and schedule. So how did they change the links on the weight watchers site from a “my WWW weight watchers” link to a “my WWW weight watchers new” link?
This is simple. Google’s servers changed. According to Google’s support staff, the only reason this happened was because Google decided to implement two new terms: “ps” for personalization and “wnp” for personalization only. As you can probably guess (or even predict), the personalization part became very important and since the introduction of ppx, it became very easy to personalize a link. Now, when someone goes to “my WWW weight watchers” and then goes to “my WWW weight watchers new” they get two different links!
So why did Google only allow “my WWW weight watchers” links when you can now go to “my WWW weight watchers new” links? They said that some “older” pages were “not very relevant” and “not very useful” to their users. However, I think Google is missing the point here… why would anyone want to visit a weight watchers’ program when all they need to do is go to one of the many Weight Watchers web sites and fill out some information and get their weight reduced? This makes no sense to me. I’m not sure if I am the only person that thinks this way but it sure does make sense to me.
