A popular SEM/SEO forum has changed its name and strategy once again.
Jazzee, a site admin at the forum explained this news as follows:
v7n started out on the Internet as Webmaster-Forum.net, a friendly place to discuss search engine optimization, graphics, coding and Internet marketing. As the community grew, we developed a personality. We realized that we shared certain principles, and we wanted to better promote these principles. To that end, we relocated to a new URL, Internet-Marketing-Research.net, and we archived the old forum.
As the community grew even more, the focus on "Internet Marketing" suggested by the domain seemed a bit restrictive in scope, and long. To avoid losing members to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, we decided on a shorter domain: v7n.com
"V7" because the site is owned by V7 Inc, and "n" because it's less typing than "network".
It looks like they are aiming to become a portal for Webmasters, for more information on the new features and services, please visit the forum announcement here.
