Very sad news, one of the most respected forum members to participate at WebmasterWorld and Search Engine Watch Forums has passed away. Known in the forums as DaveAtIFG, Dave Bellis, was member number four at WebmasterWorld, he joined WebmasterWorld back on Sept 21, 1999 and 2,140 posts later stopped posting on May 25, 2006. He resigned as admin from WebmasterWorld on Sept. 23, 2004 to begin taking it easy.

WebmasterWorld founder, Brett Tabke, said;

Dave was member #4 on WebmasterWorld in 1999 and was an admin here for many years. You could always count on Dave for an unbiased independent opinion. I will remember Dave best for is unflinching insistance that the forums remain advertising free and that a subscription model could work. Dave was the first person to donate to WebmasterWorld and signup for a subscription.

Dave was always helping people out on the boards. One of his first major deeds here was helping a fellow member get back in Google, retool her site, and go on to become very successful in her niche.

He will be missed.

Please wish Dave & his family your respect at WebmasterWorld & Search Engine Watch Forums.
