    Marketplace gets new names...

    Just happened to log on today and notice the trading post was gone!!! Or was it?
    As a matter of fact, all of the forums placed in the SitePoint Marketplace had been renamed. And what a smart idea it was...

    I guess it made the forums more understandable at "before you click" point and obviously it also helps a bunch regarding to SEO, right?

    Overall, a change to for the better.

    I don't think SEO was a consideration in this reorginization. The concern is as always, the usibilitiy for the community.

    Peter's right. The names changed in order to make things easier to find.

    The names make more sense. Now all that's left to be done is to get someone to fix the classic forum homepage so that the marketplace and reviews forum groups aren't shown against a dark blue background with antialiased-for-white icons on top of it. Ugly and hard to find and read.

    Spell checking would be great since a lot of us are not from english speaking countries

    And yeah, the market place is looking cool!
