I learned my trade on WebmasterWorld, but I now visit only every few months. I think that's because the industry has changed - I used to define my business as a technology business. Now I see us much more as a publishing company. The day to day issues I deal with are commercial and content-related, not technological, and not SEO-related.
I do think that the site desperately needs a full and thorough redesign. For my own business, it seems that we need a redesign every two years to keep pace with overall improvements in web design. Sorry, but WW feels very dated.
I don't think of myself as a webmaster any more - I'm a publisher. That said, WW has an established name and an established URL, and you know where to come when you have technological questions.
The value's fine.
What is your OVERALL impression of the site?
- The format is desperately out of date. - I'd like to see a library of articles. "Brett's 26 steps" was hugely influential in its time, and I'd like to see more of these.
