Talk about a term that hasn’t been used in a looooong time – webmaster – I definitely remember that being a webmaster really meant you had achieved some level of digital awesomeness. The title was the same from a small business to the enterprise. It was magically egalitarian. It also lived in the CIOs silo. My how times have changed, now, depending on your business, this role is cut up into multiple pieces, from operations, to sales, and to marketing.

Google Webmasters Rebrands As ‘Google Search Central’

The rebrand will cover all aspects of Webmasters, including blogs and a mascot, SearchEngineJournal, Google Webmasters Rebrands As ‘Google Search Central’: “Google “Search Central” more adequately represents the content published under the “Webmaster Central” channels. The name change applies to the Webmaster Central blog ands its social media accounts.”

From FLATsite we have FLATsite Launches a Serverless Search Plugin.

Nulled Plugins

I’ll admit, I hadn’t heard the actual term “nulled plugin” until the other week. I just called them pirated – and yes I knew the fact that if the original was GPL then “piracy” only technically applied if all the non-GPL copyrighted assets were included. This is a good reminder from Kinsta, Why You Should Stop Using Nulled WordPress Plugins and Themes: “There are various definitions around the web when it comes to the term nulled. As we define nulled it refers to premium WordPress plugins or themes that have been hacked or contain modified code designed to cause harm or collect information. These are obtained from a third-party website (not the original author or creator) and sometimes are made to work without a license key.”
