I just noticed today that webmasterworld has restructured the site. Brett, I think it's a good move on your part. I think too many of us (myself included) spent most of our time in the Google and Search Engine Forums. You seem to (in my mind) made the restructure to put the emphasis back on what's really important to webmasters - HTML etc... - The real basics of developing quality websites and letting the search engines do their own thing. Good going and thanks again for a great forum.

Maybe I'm seeing things, but if you click on the forums index the whole layout of the topics have changed.

Not sure but I think you may be right.

Perhaps the searchengine world column and the marketing world column have swapped places?

Good having html/java/css right at the top... an appropriate rearrangement of priorities.

It happens every once in a while.

no one even mentioned the new Javascript Forum [webmasterworld.com]

I think Brett does it just so I can't find my forum ;)

Great idea.

No more scrolling to down to Professional Webmaster Business Issues [webmasterworld.com] and Webmaster General [webmasterworld.com].

Surprize!

Interesting break down though I think the explanation of the difference between "The Marketing World" and The Search Engine World" is a little muddy. I wouldn't have chosen the word "marketing" to describe a forum that by and large deals with the mechanics of marketing. I think I understand the difference but the labels and explanatory text aren't as clear as they could be. How about "The Mechanics of Search Engine Marketing"?

Glad we got a Javascript forum. Now I can avoid it altogether - not that I'm avoiding you korkus2000!

That depends on the person. HTML, Javascript, CSS may be very important when you're building or redesigning a site, but once operational they pretty much take a back seat to other things like content building, marketing, revenue generation, and keeping bad guys in check.

hmm..if Google Adwords is moved into Marketing forum (which is a great idea!), shouldn't Overture PPC & Other PPC too?
