WebmasterWorld's Brett Tabke was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award at a ceremony in Las Vegas on 12 October, 2016, US Search Awards.
Brett Tabke
Brett, the founder of WebmasterWorld, and "Pubcon's CEO told me earlier he had no idea this was coming and the surprise was totally out-of-the-blue.
This is a very well deserved award, and on behalf of the WebmasterWorld Community, thank you for all you've done.

For those that may not know, Brett Tabke has worked in the computer industry for more than three decades and founded a specialty software business producing a line of software for Commodore computers in the '80s and '90s. He authored several books on assembly language programming for Western Design on the 65816 microprocessor, and was the noted author of Karma 128, a leading edge assembler for the 65816 processor.

Brett has run community networking sites since the early days of stand-alone BBS systems in 1984 through to the present day with forums such as WebmasterWorld. He also coined several SEO staples such as “Link Farm”, “SEO Themes”, and the classic “SERP” (Search Engine Results Page) that we all use. He was also featured in the Biography Channel special on the Google founders. He also wrote a chapter for the best selling “Google Hacks” book. He is also the first known person to have fully decoded the Excite and most of the Altavista search engine algos. Brett Tabke's "26 Steps to 15k a Day on WebmasterWorld is one of the most widely read documents in SEO history.
He was also a founding board member of SEMPO.

Once again, thank you Brett, it's very well deserved.

Brett Tabke's "26 Steps to 15k a Day on WebmasterWorld is one of the most widely read documents in SEO history.

Absolutely, and one I constantly quoted to many newcomers - particularly on the Amazon Associates Forum site, where the 100's of newcomers only wanted to clone a junior Amazon web site to make $1 million a day.

Something else I had forgotten
He authored several books on assembly language programming for Western Design on the 65816 microprocessor

Now there is a real, gen-u-ine blast from the past.

Ian makes note self: "Rummage through decades of components, boards, CPU's, radio parts, junque and books to see who was the author of my assembly language programming for WDC 65816"

Something else I was very rude to forget.:

Congratulations Brett! Well deserved, well done.

Sweet Brett.
I wouldn't be the 'expert' I'm considered by many to be, without this (your old) website.

Thank you.

This holds true for thousands of people, if not tens of thousands. WebmasterWorld was a godsend in the early days and its archives still hold informational gold.
