    Default Is it time to rename GPWA?

    Two reasons for this suggestion;

    1) GPWA is made up of much more than just portal owners. The name is no longer representative of who is on here. Plus, who uses the term 'webmaster' nowadays?

    2) I just did a Google search on GPWA and got.....

    'The Global Professional Wrestling Alliance', and on the .com is a risk management company.

    Surely this isn't good for us (GPWA)?

    Thoughts anyone?

    I think the name is good, it is a brand, not just a website IMO. Keep in mind there are a lot of changes going on in the serps still so the regular keyphrases may be off a bit.

    I agree. The GPWA is a brand and has pretty good awareness I think. The core of the site is still for Gambling portal owners so the name is still relevant I think.

    Looks fine on me, I just made a search on it on google and didn't see any problem on the results.
    GPWA is still on top using "gpwa" as a search query, and it actually has rich snippets too.
    GPWA has been one of the most reputable branded sites on the web, changing its name wouldn't be necessary

    I would personally keep the name, i've known it since 2007 and I believe it's a very strong name in the business. So i would keep it for sure.

    Personally I don't see the need, GPWA is fine. Plus it's recognisable by most in the industry.

    Action speaks louder than words but not nearly as often as required/requested
    GPWA as seasoned portal could do more regarding the sponsors still listed here that support criminal activity by hackers.

    Is it not counter productive to support these programs ?

    The name itself, I could care less.

    It is all about trust these days.

    I do agree with this point of view. This brand is known for a long time and old trees should stay on it's old place untouched.
    By the way, I am sure we should not tolerate situation that this wrestling idio.s are on the top search positions and GPWA behind them.
    Playing roulette, for example, is much more intellectual activity than this idiotic wrestling.
    Don't you think so!?

    Yes, I am very happy, that my results are looking very fetching, because on place 3 there is "German Professional Women's Association" listed, a real alternative to a Rumpelstiltskin Alliance, where the members are pumped up with steroids.

    Top two results for "gpwa" over here is our beloved site. I can't see any reason to change though, even if we were at position 100.

    webmaster is still a commonly used term. People here might use affiliates but that doesn't explain enough to others.

    gpwa is still a brand and a good one

    I think changing the site's name at this stage of the game isn't a wise move brand wise, since it is already associated with most affiliates.
