Happy New Year for 2003
from All of us to All of you!

 11:24 pm on Dec 31, 2002 (gmt 0)

Well, What a Year!

It is New Years Day in 2003, the Sun is shining, and I am a bit late with the traditional New Years Welcome post.

So, time to reflect on what has been and look forward to what is to be.

Now, lets see, we have had the Looksmart sidestep, the Yahoogle forwardstep, the Google stride, the Fast betterstep, the Froogle betastep, even the Yinktome whao!step. And then there is the PageRank shuffle, the Links-for-Sale kafuffle, the court-case muffle, and the losers huffle.

The world of SEO has changed dramatically over the past twelve months, and during all the time WebmasterWorld has been quietly marching on commenting, inquiring, talking, announcing, teaching, helping, ... Makes ya kinda Proud to be a member Yes!?

And coming up, who knows what is going to happen with this Yinktomi thingamy, not to mention that gIPOoogle dohickey.

Other things to watch out for are the expansion of Adwords into countries hithertoo left untouched, perhaps a continued growth in PPC in general, up and coming Search Engines, maybe even some new ones, and a general acceptance by the public and business alike that Internet Sales are here to stay as a legitimate part of business life.

One thing that is clear to me is that there is going to be a definite shift in the way websites are built with the focus turning back again to content and information. Even though online sales will continue to grow, it is the content that is going to get people to your site. Time to get on with the basics.

I was just chatting with my Mum over a nice hot cuppa about the fact that things have been changing all year and are about to change again. All of which have affected and will continue to affect my traffic and hence my income. Of course she was saying things like "Why does it change?", "I don't really understand." and "I hope it doesn't affect you too much."

My reply, "That's Life on the Internet."

What a Year! But then, as they say, The Best is Yet to Come!

All the best for 2003 everyone!

>Life on the Internet

Yep. with 2003 being a crucial year for all of us, I'm sure, and for me anyway.

Good luck for all of us and a happy and prosperous 2003!

Cheers from Hamburg, 01.07, 01.01.03

Happy New Year - still got a few hours to go here (and a work night).

But I'll finish before 11 so shouldn't be quite looped at the hour. ;)

Happy New Year! :)

It's 4.45am here, just got back home and wanted to check in and wish all (seen + unseen) at ww the best fortune in all things for the coming year (and after of course).
Yeah, I feel good vibes are here this year too! If it's half as good as 2002 I'll be happy.

Happy New Year from Millinocket, Maine!

It's sleeting here in Millinocket, and as we enter our second full year here, I must remind myself from time to time that I wanted to escape the warm weather! :)

Welcome, 2003, and my wish is that we all strive to make it a better year than any before.

Buon Anno from Italy, where the sun is out and the rain has stopped for the first time in weeks. I'll take that blue sky as good sign, thank you very much.
Here's to continuing professionalism and the excellent, nay unique, atmosphere on this board.

Bonne Année à tous from Québec! I have shot a fireworks display on midnight yesturday from the top of mountain. A great way to celebrate New Year.

I hope every one of WebmasterWorld's members start 2003 with a BANG!

Happy new year everyone, from London UK.

The best I can do is echo Jimmy Cliff's hopes for a little more light, a little more love and a little more peace for everyone.

Yes its cheesy, yes its looking pretty unlikely right now, but that won't stop me at least hoping for it :)

2002 will be remembered by me as the year I discovered Webmasterworld and realised for the first time where search engines fit in to the scheme of things. I just hope that now I'm finally "getting it" they don't move the goal posts _too_ much in 2003.

Have a great year.
