Best Wishes, Elisabeth! Search Engine Watch Editor Osmeloski Leaves

Elisabeth Osmeloski, editor of Search Engine Watch, is leaving to become director of online media for the Vacation Rentals site. Her last day will be this Friday, and she has a departure announcement here.

Elisabeth and I worked together to get the Search Engine Watch Forums launched nearly three years ago, then she became managing editor of the site in April 2006, then she took over as editor when I departed. It was always great working with her, and one of the saddest parts of leaving was saying goodbye to her as a work colleague.

Barry Schwartz, Chris Sherman and many of the correspondents here at Search Engine Land also all worked with her. We wish her all the best in her new position, and despite it being for a start-up, we hope she’ll also find plenty of time for the snowboarding, skiing, mountain biking, [insert adventure sport here] activities that she loves.

Rob Kerry, known as evilgreenmonkey at the Search Engine Watch Forums, will be taking over from Elisabeth as SEW Forums Editor. A new editor for Search Engine Watch has not been named. Kevin Newcomb continues as news editor, and Rebecca Lieb remains in charge of the site overall as editor-in-chief of the ClickZ network.
