I see that my post in Google SEO forum didn't go through. That's fine. This is a private forum and if it's not a suitable post, so be it.
However, talk about deadsville. I would think WebmasterWorld is the litmus test on what's going on out there. If there isn't a collective give up, then what do you call this? I'm sure stats don't lie.
I'm not trying to be negative, but I'm trying to explain my disbelief in the lack of posts in the biggest section here, the Google forum. Am I just stating the obvious and that doesn't warrant a discussion among members?
Really, should I not take the activity here as some sort of indicator on where webmastering is in 2015. The state of the webmaster appears dead to me, or close to it. Am I wrong in saying that? What else would you say about post counts here 1 or 2 years ago vs. the most recent past? I'm not saying there is some sort of solution, other than saying out loud what everyone seems to be thinking. Is there anything wrong in that?
