I was signed up, but had never used it. so i had a peek.
When i came across this in the glossery:
Regarded as one of the best search engines, with an index of 55 million pages. It can be slow to index new sites.
I thought i had been right to ignore it.
Is it really that useful, and if so, Which part do you think?
What I'm not sure about is how it will effect lists like I-Search. or I-Design. If you subscribe to and read multiple Adventive pubs, it's a great deal. Those that only read one, might not find value in it.
Webmasterworld offers more than enough for me to keep up with.
If I spend too much time reading, I will not earn enough. Will Webmasterworld go to paid subscription too? Or is that a daft question?
No specific plans on the table that I'm aware of, but it's certainly something that's been discussed in great detail.
The issues John Audette addressed in his email are ones that many online publishers are struggling with. I personally will subscribe just to support the effort because I think it's a transition the web in general needs to make.
It's pretty clear that 3rd parties, (advertisers) are no longer willing to foot the bill for all the costs involved with providing quality information online. If end users don't begin to contribute, the web will become a pretty worthless place.
