Big News - We're Launching QueryTracker 3.0 This Weekend!

QueryTracker.net will be getting a great new look -- and some fantastic new features -- this weekend!  As part of the move to QT3, we'll also be updating the QueryTracker Blog with a fab new look.  We're really excited about our remodeling and upgrades -- and we know you're going to love our changes!

Here's the schedule:

On Saturday afternoon, we'll be making the changes to the QueryTracker.net Blog. We expect this to take between 1 and 2 hours.  You'll still be able to link to and read posts, but some of the widgets you're used to may be down during the transition.  Any links or bookmarks you have to our blog will continue to work, both over the weekend and going forward.

On Sunday morning, QueryTracker.net will be down for 3 to 4 hours while we make the upgrade.  The QueryTracker.net Forum will not be affected and will continue to run as normal.

Want a sneak peek right now? Check out these videos!
