Just an update on the situation and in case anyone is pacing their living room because of not having their WMW fix hope is in sight. Brett Tabke mentions on the temporary site.
"A large data center outage in Chicago has left several thousand servers offline. To compound matters even worse, the data center was home to DNS servers by WestHost. We will be temporarily keeping tabs on stuff here."So not to fear the great people over there are working hard to get it resolved. Offically Webmasterworld has been temporarily moved to SearchEngineWorld.com for the time being. It may even be back to normal by Thursday morning but I am not sure.
Shawn of Digitalpoint has some explanation for part of the problem here. In the mean time, relax, sit back, get some sleep and enjoy a good book or link building exercise.
