    Arrow The old 'Classic Boat' forum

    I googled

    classic boat forum

    Is this where they moved?

    http://www.theyachtmarket.com/forum/...ic_Boat_Forum/

    It does not seem so.

    If not where have they gone?

    Anyone got an addy for their forum?
    RELAX, Rum may not be the answer, but nor is water or juice. Now what is your Question?

    We haven't transferred the forum as yet. It will be up in the next few days.

    Well, yes, it would be. That will be why the new publishers insisted the forum as part of the deal. No good having a google of your title coming up with someone else's site

    thing is, as far as google is concerned, The URL is everything. and whilst they may be moving the forum, it will get a brand new web address, which google at the moment knows bugger all about

    googling classic boats will display the ybw.com forum address for a long long time to come

    a forum on classicboat.co.uk or whatever will be starting from scratch and will take a long time to creep back to the top.

    add to that the new 'Panda' update google launched, which specifically is seeking out websites where content has been duplicated ( http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-13091708 ) and is all but removing them from the results system

    so while IPC think they have made a good deal its possible that it could back fire, classicboat.co.uk may never get off the google starting blocks and YBW.com could get knocked right back down the lists - effecting every aspect of there Internet presence not just forums and there advertising revenue

    Not beyond the wit of man to provide a redirect.
    Another person's thoughts about you are outside of your jurisdiction.
