"Any cons? Sometimes interesting discussions are removed too early. We watch Ally MacBeal too, and know that some American lawyers will sue God if they think it will bring in some money. Still, sometimes we wish that controversial entries would be allowed to live a little bit longer."

Thats it! Im off to the new one with bright colours.... ;)

I take exception with the mention - it highlites WebmasterWorld as a home for SE types. What about the rest of us hardworking types that aren't SE centric!

But - the accolades are well deserved nonetheless!

Cheers!

Webmasterworld intimidating?!?!

Personally would have called it a great place for beginners and advanced members alike.

Now if you have to have a dancing cartoon next to your name......

That's a great gong - well done Brett and the team. Must be nice to receive it but the traffic increase in the last 12 months is the best indicator.

Thanks. What about some of the other winners?

Here would be my list:

- Most improved SE: Inktomi. (proving that you can come back from the brink)
- Most promising SE: Teoma. (proving that size matters)
- Best webmaster relations: AllTheWeb.
- Easiest SE to use: Teoma walking away.
- Most consistent on the daily grind: Chris Sherman. Is Danny trying to replace himself? ;-)
- Best webmaster outreach program. Google
- Most bang-for-buck marketing award: PositionTech.
- Best taking a stand award: SearchEngineWatch for resisting the push from internet.com to load up the site with excessive ads like the others in the network.

"The fact that Webmaster World is dominated by SEO professionals, may make the forum a bit intimidating for beginners that are afraid of posting "stupid questions" (there is really no such thing, you know).

It is not that the WW moderators are not a friendly bunch, but some will find it a bit embarrassing to ask questions like "what is a metatag?", when the rest of the group is discussing the set-up of Apache servers."

Just so not true about WW. To paraphrase one of the moderators on this board, all of which do an outstanding job, "You ask, you learn, then it's your turn to teach."

Great job folks!

I can't thank the forum enough for helping me in the past year. The hardest thing here is NOT finding an answer to your question. If you know how to search, it's all there.

Congrats!

Sure there is - it's the one you had that you didn't ask and don't have the answer too.

I forwarded the link for this article to my boss. The messaging was simple:

(a) This is why I spend so much time there,
(b) This is why we contributed $$ to the forum before there ever was a 'supporters forum' bennie, and
(c) Back off, man, and let me do my job, I've clearly got the right resources for it :)

WebmasterWorld is a great forum - no doubt - but let's not get
gut-renchingly apple pie about it.

There's no need to creep on these forums.

Congrats Brett!:) Thank you for providing us with a great forum.

Sometimes interesting discussions are removed too early. We watch Ally MacBeal too, and know that some American lawyers will sue God if they think it will bring in some money. Still, sometimes we wish that controversial entries would be allowed to live a little bit longer.

Like the post earlier today regarding SearchKing and Google.:)

We get a lot of email. We try to answer it all. We've been doing much better lately. Oh well. That's why it's Brett's awards. In GoogleGuy's awards, we would win. ;)

But, Brett did give Google this one:

- Best webmaster outreach program. Google

I have no idea what differentiates "webmaster relations" from "webmaster outreach," but I'm sure Brett does. :)

Oh, you'd win hands down for best forum rep GG. I think I realize the high wire act you so gracefully walk around here. I wish your employer was the same kind of team player:

"He regards optimizers the way a mother grizzly might regard a hunter jabbing at her cub with a stick." (-wired [wired.com])

It's pretty evident they choose the right voice to speak for them out here. Nice work GoogleGuy.

You'd be surprised how many googlers were just like me. :) No worries, Brett.
