I'm happy to announce that Elisabeth Osmeloski, our hard-working SEW Forums editor, is now taking on the expanded role of being Search Engine Watch's managing editor.
Elisabeth will continue to oversee the day-to-day operations of the SEW Forums, as she's been doing since they launched in June 2004. However, she'll now be helping me revitalize and maintain the Search Engine Watch site overall.
In particular, we're looking to ensure we keep more of our primer material fresh to help those new to search marketing, while also making changes to ensure that the many things SEW offers -- forum discussions, archived information, current news, original coverage -- is more easily accessible to those coming to the site.
It's great to have Elisabeth coming on in the new role! Elisabeth's promotion hasn't yet been posted to our staff page, but that will happen shortly.
I should also mention that Chris Sherman and I had title changes last month. Chris, formerly SEW's associate editor, became the site's executive editor. He continues to carry on with overseeing SearchDay and working with me on the site's overall editorial direction and coverage. My title shifted from editor to editor-in-chief, and I continue to be responsible for the site overall.
