I was chatting with some people you might call "influencers" in SEO recently.
When I mentioned how stoked I was on how we've been doing here on Pro Webmasters lately, replies echoed "Old school, love it!!"
If I'm being honest, 90% of regulars here know more about Search Engine Optimization than anyone that might identify as "influencers" within the SEO community.
And it's a G%^ D%$N shame.
But I wonder if part of the reason our site is not as popular/known anymore is that it is perceived by newer "SEOs" as being less relevant for up-to-date stuff.
I'm fine with not being cool in fact I prefer it in most cases, but there's a lot of knowledge here that doesn't get the credit it deserves.
Personally, I love this site for what it is. We blend SEO, with Systems Administration, to even backend stuff that I'm often inclined to flag to go to Server Fault but don't because I'm proud that we handle it here.
Are people still becoming "webmasters" tho?
How do we best ensure the longevity of this site?
Food for thought. Not like we have much control over such a thing.
But just saying I own
serpoverflow.com and I'm happy to part with it.
Unfortunately we're stuck on a subdomain......forever.......
