Wow! From humble beginnings it has been quite a journey. The challenges are different, the problems are different, the rewards are different and the head space is, well, very different indeed.
My congrats and thanks to all, especially out esteemed moderator Bill, who played a vital part in making this one of, if not the, best English speaking forum on Webmastering and SEO in the Asia Pacific region in just under 10 years.
Here's to the next 10k - methinks it won't take another 10 years to get there. Virtual beers all 'round! :)
Thanks Woz! I can't believe that we've finally hit 10000 posts in here. This is a real milestone for everyone who has helped us out in discussing a very large and diverse search engine market. This whole Asia/Pacific forum really got started because of you Woz. Thanks for kicking things off on the next 10K!
Back when this forum first started out I was quite interested in all of the Japanese search engines that were opening up. Most of them are gone now, and we have only had Yahoo and Google for quite some time. It is a bit encouraging to see that a few new engines have been making an entry into the Japanese SE market. However, they're not all coming from Japan, but China and Korea. It will be interesting to look back and see where we are in another 10K posts.
