Google's Matt Cutts Launches Blog
Around the time of all that hassle over Matt's involvement at Threadwatch we talked about him doing a blog, and he ummmed and ahhhed about it, but generally agreed that it was a good idea. Now, your favorite Google PR guy and mine, has launched his own blog, finally.
Some questions are just begging to be answered:
Is this an Attempt to Get "with it" by Google?
Absolutely. I'm sure Matt would argue that this is a personal site, and that it has little to do with Google "the corporation" or their own promotions/pr - but I don't think much Matt does goes unnoticed, and possibly not undirected. If it is an attempt to create the equivilant of Yahoo's Jeremy Zawodny then their certainly isn't anyone better suited to the task in my opinion.
Will WebmasterWorld members be allowed to link to him?
Bearing in mind that Matt has been one of Brett Tabke's biggest selling points for some years now, it would be pretty funny if, like the official Google Blog, the official Yahoo! blog and many other solid industry news sources, wmw pretended it did not exist, and edited out links to it heh...
Phew, and there was me worrying what a hard time WmW would have justifying linking to Matt's blog. Silly me, i should have known, it's not a blog it's an FAQ site!
not a blog the way I read it - more a FAQ Site. Certainly not fake - Got it directly from Matt himself.
Im pleased Matt's blogging, he should be. Good luck with it, the 'sphere ain't quite as safe as wmw mate, but it's a hell of a lot of fun!
