    Here we Grow Again! The Local Search Forum Turns 3

    ForumBirthday

    Today we are 3 Years Old - Happy Birthday Community!


    Today is the Local Search Forum's 3rd Birthday. My how time flies when you're doing what you love!

    We did our formal launch 3 years ago today. In that short amount of time we've grown to 3,500 visits per day, a loyal membership of 2,490+ and more than 66,000 posts.

    Even though today is the day we celebrate our 3rd anniversary - remember - we have leading industry experts and Top Contributors sharing tips, tools, news and resources here every single day!


    Today I want to send out a special thank you,
    to YOU - for being part of this community!


    It's YOU, the members, that make this forum the dynamic resource it is. We sincerely appreciate every one of you for your willingness to share. This is a peer support forum. I can't help everyone. So your contributions are always greatly appreciated!

    There's no way we could have grown this fast and this strong without all of you. It's the collective knowledge in this forum that makes it the largest, most active community in the industry!

    I'd also like to extend heart-felt gratitude to my amazing team!

    We've grown from 2 to 15! And our team includes top industry leaders, experts and bloggers.
    I feel so proud and blessed to be working with all of you!

    OUR TEAM: Colan Nielsen, Scott Rawlins, Justin Bergman, Phil Rozek, Darren Shaw, Eric Rohrback, Joy Hawkins, Casey Meraz, Michael Borgelt, Cody Baird, Dan Leibson, Priya Chandra, Christa Morgante, & Susan Staupe. And special thanks to our Forum Administrator: David Baxter who keeps everything running smoothly on the back end.

    I honestly could not do this without your help and sincerely appreciate you all!

    Please join me in thanking our team for their time and dedication to helping the community!

    I'd also like to thank our sponsors: Yext and just joining us just this week Local Market Launch. Sponsors allow us to continue bringing you the latest news, tips & free support. We could not keep the lights on, without their financial contribution, so please support them!


    OK, so who brought the virtual birthday cake???

    Let's party!
    (And yes, to my craft beer loving TCs, you can have a virtual beer too!)


    P.S. Don't miss any important industry news. If you have not yet, subscribe to the RSS feed and/or daily forum digest. Here's how... STAY INFORMED - How to Subscribe & Search the Forum

    Thanks for everything Linda. You have done such an amazing job by creating one of the VERY BEST (if not THE best) resources out there. We, as a community, cannot thank you enough for all you do.
