    Is there a plan to put a direct link to The Lounge in the navigation bar AT Windows Secrets' site?

    The Lounge:

    That's a good idea!

    Yes, there is such a plan. The delayed implementation fits into the strategy to get the whole of the Lounge's database into the Google archive.

    The caution arises from a wish to avoid having too great a surge in activity. Such great surges are believed to be automatically linked by Google to spam activity.

    By phasing in the Lounge linking gradually, the "best of both worlds" is hoped to be achieved.

    As far as I can understand, the notifications of the Windows Secrets subscriber base is entering its final phase, and, perhaps by the end of this month, the WS masthead will match the Lounge masthead.

    Well put. This information is exactly correct.

    Reading back through a number of Brian's posts about the "Google strategy" I'm not clear on where we are to date with that. Have we yet opened all The Lounge pages to Google?

    Yes, the entire lounge is now visible to search bots, excluding things like member listings, search, and profile pages (among others).
