    He was more their PR guy for spam related issues than the tech guy who would make algorithms.

      It doesn't really matter much, another one took his seat and when you look at what he said it isn't much more helpful anyway. First he says the Penguin is rolled out, after he says it takes a few weeks.

      Whether they really don't update him properly or give them to much free speech remains the question, could also be a game they're playing.

    Matt Cutts is just an employee who works for Google. Changing the employee won't change anything in terms of vision or policies. Google will always seek to improve the search results and fight web spam.

      And eliminate the need for other websites by taking content from sites and putting it in little boxes at the top of search so you stay on Google for longer. Sometimes someone can be SOOOO rich that they could buy a small country, but they still want more.

      A lot of queries now have the little box at the top. Some queries are 100% Google things above the fold, image reels, reviews, sponsored products. How to cook an egg I think was one.

      You are spot on! Google will proceed with their policies no matter who the person in-charge is. Moreover, the algorithmic changes are not decided by a single person but by a panel. So not having one guy on your team should not make much of a difference unless that person was the one who was the spearhead of radical and new ideas. It could be that a person brings lots of ideas to the meeting table that others do not. It can be that this person has superior understanding of what needs to change in a given scenario to improve search results. If that is the case then Matt Cutt's leave or his departure from Google might have some sort of effect.

    "Era"? Give me a break!
    I'm sure he must be busy building a PBN for after retirement income source.

    Hi,

    It could be the worst thing if Matt is still on leave as we are hit with the pigeon and pirate i just want Matt to comeback and give some algorithms to recover from the update of Google.

    I always liked Matt and think he made a good front man for Google.

    Nobody can say he didn't make a name for himself with Google. I hope he stays relevant in the industry one way or another. But it's starting to really look as though he may not re-assume the helm as Google's web spam mouth piece.

    Is he leaving Google? Or just maybe going to be representing them in a different capacity?

    Matt had a very hard job, and I respect him. He is the face of Google when it comes to targeting "spam" - whatever your definition of spam may be. That's PBN's, self-built links, everything.

    Matt Cutts is the person who people blame for destroying their business, yet it's hard to hate him. He's done an excellent job of managing his own reputation, and I think that's a credit to him. He's become "famous" in a good way from annoying thousands of people - who else can say they've done that?

    If he leaves, another will take his place, and I doubt the person will have the same mentality or personality as Matt which is unfortunate. The amount of MEMEs' on Matt alone goes to show how respected he really is.

    Nothing will change regardless.

    Just got back from a #BrightonSEO. I was given room 404 in the hotel I stayed at. Couldn’t find it anywhere!

    I don't think it really matters. Of course, his absence in the SEO world at Google.com will definitely be felt by all. But it will not make a big difference in the Google world.

    Cheers!
