Search Engine Watch Server Change

About a year ago, Incisive Media purchased Search Engine Watch from Jupitermedia. Part of the purchase meant that Jupitermedia would continue to host Search Engine Watch for a year. With that time up, we're finally moving. This is a heads-up that the change is happening.

The Search Engine Watch Forums (http://forums.searchenginewatch.com) already moved about two weeks ago. It was pretty painless and not noticed by most people.

The main Search Engine Watch site (http://searchenginewatch.com) is being moved right now. I was just told that our DNS was changed. That means over the next day, people will be invisibly sent to the new servers hosting our content, rather than the old Jupitermedia-hosted ones.

If all goes well, you won't notice the move. It should happen automatically for you. At the moment, the content on both sites is the same and will stay that way until tomorrow, at which point everyone really should be sent automatically to the new site.

How do you know if you are at the new site? Scroll down to the search box in the left-hand column. If you see an option to search and sort "results in date order," you're being routed to the new site (note that on the Search Engine Watch Blog -- http://blog.searchenginewatch.com -- the search box is yet again different).

How also to know? Chances are things will break. We have a lot of redirections in place, and we're checking to make sure that everything is working fine. But inevitably, something will go wrong.

Spotted a bug, a problem? Use this form and let us know, and we'll get it solved.

Finally, the Search Engine Watch Blog hasn't switched yet. That will happen in a few days, and I'll post a notice there, when it does.
