Since upgrading to Firefox 3, I’ve had an intermittent problem, both on my work and my home PC’s. Every now and then the enter key will refuse to submit a URL entered in the address bar.
As a webmaster who is involved in sending marketing emails to customers, it is rightly believed that we should make it as easy as possible for recipients to unsubscribe from our maillist. Not only is it in the interests of the recipient who will get a much better impression of your website/company if you do, but as an email sender it also helps you keep a good quality maillist full of people who actually want to read and response to your mailouts, and helps you stay off blacklists.
The role of a Webmaster is defined by Wikipedia as thus:
“The webmaster, also called the system administrator, the author, or the website administrator, is the person responsible for designing, developing, marketing, or maintaining a website.”
This is a good, but fairly general description of the role. The actual role will of course have infinite combinations of tasks depending on the type of websites(s) a Webmaster looks after, or the size and type of the business.
Getting a website indexed with a search engine can be a long process. It can take ages for the bot to get around to indexing all your content, and can take even longer to build your sites reputation and page rank.
