Matt Cutts had always planned to work at Google for 4-5 years. After 15, the time has come for the head of the Webspam team to take his leave from now through October. Local Search Masters, along with the rest of the search engine marketing industry, will certainly notice his absence, and we wish him well. Cutts is known for making headlines with his announcements that often signal a change in the SEO landscape. He has insisted that his team of engineers is much better at fighting spam than he is, and that there is no reason to worry about Google. Cutts cites his lack of time with his wife as his reason for stepping away, and the couple is set to embark on quite the adventure, leaving their email inboxes and voicemails behind for ballroom dancing lessons and exotic cruises.
