GOOGLE AND RESEARCH

One of the problems webmasters galore face is trying to find relevant news. Google has become less useful primarily as many sites and forums actually discourage crawling. The result is that discovery of forum discussions and opinions are hobbled. Very few forums are open to Google et al for crawling.

Steam has become more of a help as many contacts are game developers. Social media like Twitter and Facebook are not of much value at all.

Finding content of interest is increasingly difficult for webmasters. While press releases are available the site does not want to become a public relations operation.
