Search Engine Watch
The search engine watch gives a great way to keep up with what's going
on in the search engine world. This site provides a ton of information
about a very wide range of subjects related not only to search engine
optimization, but also the flip of the coin; subjects related to searching
online. Its greatest weakness is that it provides so much information;
its really intended for search engine optimization experts, rather than
the average webmaster or site manager. The site is divided into a free
area and a paid subscription area.
Google hosts a newsgroup that is widely distributed across the Internet
through many newsgroup services. If you know how to use newsgroups -
if you already have a newsreader - check to see if your provider subcribes
to google.public.support.general. if not ask if they will. Or read the
newsgroup through Google Groups, a free, Web based newsgroup distribution
service provided by Google itself.
Webmaster World (www.webmasterworld.com) is a very good discussion group,
with many knowledgeable people. It's cost $89 for six months or $150
for a year.
Pandia Search Central (www.pandia.com) is a great resource site with
information about search engines, from how to use a search engine to
how to rank well. The site also provides tutorials and links to all
sorts of useful sites.
A huge amount of information is available at www.ihelpyouservice.com/forums
in about three dozen discussion groups, from those related to general
search engine information, such as link popularity and page content,
to those dedicated to specific search systems.
