As 2015 comes to a close, WebmasterWorld Members are taking stock and predicting changes and developments for 2016. There are some interesting predictions, and some good suggestions in that thread, with lots of ideas on what webmasters might do to maximize their earnings. Come and join our discussion on the topic and let?s have your predictions.
Google?s latest updates that took place during December were reported by our Members, but Google remained silent about each shift reported. More than likely Google remains quiet because it doesn't want to announce any of the smaller tweaks it makes each month. Find out more in our update threads.
Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) is coming to Google SERPs real fast, and if you?re not already up to speed, we have a few threads on the topic to help you get going.
This past year we?ve been reporting on more and more security issues, and it seems to me that trend for more attacks will continue, and there?s no doubt that webmasters will have to up their game. Each topic is covered in its own sections; however, we?re considering bringing it together in a central discussion forum. Let?s have your feedback on that: Should we start a dedicated security forum?
Finally, thank you for your participation at WebmasterWorld during the past year, and we look forward to seeing you in the forums in 2016. We wish you and your family a very healthy, happy and Prosperous 2016. Happy New Year, Bonan Novjaron, Feliz Añuevo, Kali Xronia, Bonne Anné Ein Gutes Neues Jahr!
See you in the forums!
We're Feeling Lucky
Jim and Neil
