Google has re-launched its AdWords Help Forum on a new platform and given it its own URL: www.en.adwords-community.com. That address redirects to a longer URL where visitors are welcomed to “the official Google AdWords Community.”
AdWords-Community.com was one of several domains that Google recently registered, a list that included several variations such as adwordscommunity.com, www.adwordscommunities.com and community-adwords.com. As of this moment, none of the other domains resolve.
Visitors to the old AdWords Help Forum are able to browse through the message archives, but Google has a big, yellow alert box at the top of the page pointing them to the new domain/forum.
While the old forum home page showed a list of “popular discussions,” the new community home page shows “Top Starred Contributions” and “Top Starred Authors.”
The new community forum is using software from Lithium, a company that counts AT&T, Best Buy, Home Depot, Spotify and others among its clients.
