A webmaster is ond who can make his or her own website and knows all the methods to do it right. And a webmaster uses this knowledge to build a website and earn money from it. But the basic computer users are far from being a webmaster. So how does one become a webmaster?

really bugs me when people in my line of work say I am a web-master then when you start talking about html, dynamic html, search engine optimisation, css style sheets etc etc they just look at you as if you are talking a foreign language lol, a web-master must be able to build a site using raw code, theres a lot of drag and drop sites online that enable you to build a web-site in minutes. Is that a professional web-site ?? I think it takes years and years before anyone can call themselves a webmaster and its great doing courses but untill you can be given note pad and asked to develope and optimise a site then you are not a web-master in my opinion. Hope you know what am trying to say.

Yeah i understood what you said. You are right a webmaster should know all the methods to improve upon any given design be it a well maintained site or develop something on or from a notepad as you said.
