Great list James! How about the Google 12 mth thread too?
Thanks WebRookie, how could I forget that thread? Should get all time MVP (or MVT)
One of my favorite threads is EUROPE - An overview by country [webmasterworld.com]
Could I also suggest:
Web Page Design Tips & Traps [webmasterworld.com]
2 nice resources for a New Webmaster!
Excellent list of topics JamesR. I`ll forward it to some of my clients immediately.
This is a favorite of mine
*hammer a flag* Thanks James, have more reading to do now :)
Thanks James - a real time saver having this consolidated list.
Excellent list - thanks
This is definitely one hell of a good stuff. yeah!
I agree with the consensus on this subject -- it's useful to have this info in one place. However, it's a flaw of the site that it requires the square peg of this particular thread to fit in the round hole of this discussion system. It would really, really be useful if there were static info pages -- aka FAQs -- navigable from the top level and from each major section (Google, Yahoo, "Fast, AllTheWeb", etc.). I shold further like to point out that the ability to bookmark is not an acceptable answer -- it doesn't work for site newbies.
there is already a system in place, although not forum specific. Click the "Library" link at the top of the page and you will see what I mean.
James, perhaps the title is a bit misleading... this is more than a 'newcomer's' guide. In much the same way that we all need to brush up on areas of our jobs or lives neglected over time, I reckon the same applies to the Web and the use of this collection. This list does it for me as a collated index to topics and threads, some of which can take weeks to digest. As I don't post all that often these days, it's boomarked for frequent returns. Many thanks.
A personal favourite of mine, Finding Suitable Link Partners [webmasterworld.com]. Some of the info is a bit dated now, perhaps this thread could do with an update, re-examining what goodies can be extracted using the methods detailed.
Imagine the power of FASTs link.all: syntax....
I have just answered all the questions I was about to ask without touching the Keyboard. Niceone.
