    Requirements For Webmaster Status

    This is a bit tongue in cheek, but what do you consider to be a minimum requirement for websites that you created to call yourself a webmaster?

    I'll kick it off with my idea for a set of minimum requirements:


    • a free hosted home page with some clip art and animations on the page
    • a blog - ideally it is still alive, but a dead blog counts as well
    • a forum - it's a no-brainer, all of us need to build a forum if only to get used to the admin
    • a squidoo lens
    • a PPC landing page - you have to have paid for traffic to land on a page - even if it got banned
    • you must have at least one site monetized with Adsense even if it makes no money
    • you must have advertised at least one ClickBank product
    • at least one of your sites has a custom favicon and logo - no matter how badly designed it is

    I could go on, but I look forward to your suggestions of minimum requirements for a webmaster badge of honor

    • a squidoo lens
    • at least one of your sites has a custom favicon and logo - no matter how badly designed it is

    You definitely have to add:
    - Have made at least two drunken domain purchases that make no sense to you the day after...

    good one ....

    me :
    - Must have family members, relatives, girlfiend(s) or friends advising you to stop chasing a pipe dream.
    - Have made at least two drunken domain purchases that make no sense to you the day after...
    - a blog - ideally it is still alive, but a dead blog counts as well (plenty of it)
    - a forum - it's a no-brainer, all of us need to build a forum if only to get used to the admin (forum is where i start my web career)
    - you must have at least one site monetized with Adsense even if it makes no money
    - at least one of your sites has a custom favicon and logo - no matter how badly designed it is

    extra :
    - Ban at least once in DP
    - Visit webmaster forum at least one every three day (max i did).

    • Must have used Add your URL to Google, only to realize that you would never use it again.
    • Must have targeted an exceedingly competitive keyword, spending hours of time or hundreds and/or thousands of dollars of cash, before realizing that your efforts would not be compensated.
    • Must have completed a very time consuming, menial task (directory submissions?) the day before finding an automated solution that would do just as good of a job.
    • Must have received a temporary IP ban (sorry, only senior web development consultants receive permanent IP bans) from at least one social network (ahem, Technorati...).

    • Must have signed up to NetBuilders.org
    • Must have read old posts from yourself on a forum, asking a basic noob question and wondering how you couldn't know that at that time
    • Must have tried at least one thing next to Google Adsense on your website
