Is this the end for Matt Cutts
Twice now I have personally seen private conversations that Matt has had with webmasters appear on the net, personally I’m in two minds on this.
So this is good news for SEO’s that haven’t fucked Matt over by publishing private convos. It will do one of 2 things….one it will make Matt much more wary of helping or at least talking about spam issues with people that have outed him in the past, secondly it may even stop him trusting anyone new, either way this is bad for the SEO industry in General
What’s really really bad for the industry, is that Google is the most powerful provider of traffic, and yes I take shots at them all the time, but I will defend the people that work there, or have worked there, to the hilt people like Matt, Aaron, Evan,, Amanda, Vanessa, Mike etc etc.. why because it’s just their Jobs / Careers that you are fucking about with. I have seen People get quoted for saying things that they didn’t, but still these people put themselves in the most vulnerable position possible talking to webmasters that would stab you in the back to get a few links!
Sorry Rand I know it’s no great loss, I think personally you have a great Team and I like you a lot but I don’t want that crap in my RSS.. people often ask me why I don’t actively participate in Forums, Personal attacks on my friends are my Achilles heal ..
