    I see the term pop up all the time on here, but I've never learned what it actually means. Can anyone please help me out.

    Basically it's a site that allows you to create a free blog

    blogger.com
    wordpress.com
    weebly.com
    soup.io
    etc...

    if you really are that curious, you can check the wikipedia article

    blogs, social media sites, wikis, video and image sharing sites even ebay or fiverr, podcasts, forums, social bookmarking sites, feeds and those which don't belong to any aforementioned category like google maps, google docs, paypal, last.fm, dropbox etc. are all web 2.0

    one thing is common in web 2.0 sites, they are all centered around user generated content and "sharing"

    These are third party websites that allow you to have your own section to post content to.

    No. It means hosted sites you create by signing up to a main site. It does not mean free, and focusing on free is a poor strategy as the free networks outside the big three or four that are free always tank under the spam strain. Invest in them and they will be around for your hosted web 2.0 site to link to your money site.

    You also have to ask yourself, if your new web 2.0 site is moderated, who is more likely to delete it as spam, the network that's free and straining under the crap people submit, or the network you just invested in?

    Web 2.0 is a concept that takes the network as a platform for user-centered design, information sharing, interoperability and collaboration on Internet World.
    A Web 2.0 website allows users to interact and collaborate with each other in a social media dialogue as creators of user-generated content in virtual community.
    Examples of Web 2.0 website include:
    - social media website (facebook, twitter, linked-in & etc)
    - Blogs
    - Wikis
    - Youtube (Video Sharing)
    - Web Application...

    Web 1.0 - sites where you create your content (like your own blog)
    Web 2.0 - sites where users create content on others site (social sites, user generated content sites etc)
    Web 3.0 - not sure

    Such an prudent correction. Well,that was my answer because I was taught that way. You see, I've built web 2.0s on free blog sites only. Mainly because it was free and I don't have to spend money on it. Maybe that explains why I see web 2.0 that way.

    They are simply sites you can get contextual links from.

    This is the correct answer. Web 2.0 isn't about blogging it just so happens that most of them are blog sites but that's not what it means.

    Does Web 3.0 even exist in the first place?

    If it does then wouldn't there be Web 4.0, Web 5.0, Web 6.0 so on and so forth?

    Basically any website that isn't static HTML is web 2.0 imho.
