    Matt Cutts announced on his personal blog that he will be taking at least 4 months leave of absence a few days ago.

    http://www.mattcutts.com/blog/on-leave/

    It's to spend quality time with his wife. Something that he has been apparently been meaning to do for a while now. Or is it something else - a suspension maybe or a soft goodbye?

    With the amount of businesses Google has ruined and all the hate that guy gets, I would've taken leave a lot sooner.

    What do you think's going to happen while he's away...?

    It depends on just how powerful he has become within google? or is he just some kind of figurehead

    Well, it doesn't mean there will be no Google updates. Lol.

    There will be somebody in charge who will make sure they run out periodic updates to keep up with the search quality.

    I watched a docu on google recently (not found on googlem but about google :p) and some of the complaints ppl made about the company were that you felt like you were just a cog in the machine and would never leave any lasting impact.

    So cutty boy would not be missed theyd just get another chubby dweeb to replace him.

    Our own super-detective is also on leave at the same time, and both are FB buddies too... some secret connection definitely! Both will be spotted on some secluded beach off Malta soon.

    Are they going to interchange their careers? Hmm...

    Most likely they are about to release another Penguin update that will f*** everything up again.

    Sounds like he's going into a witness protection program lol

    What he really means is that black hat techniques have taken the best of him and he has accepted his loss and will move on.

    Right. This immediately reminded me of the Jay Carney story, stepping down from the White House. It got too hot in there so they hit the road. Haha.

    This doesn't really change a thing. There are still going to be updates with new penalties and fluffy animal names. The only difference is that this forum doesn't have 1 person in particular to get mad at.

    Matt Cutts is being deindexed.

    His attempts to rejoin google will be blocked by incompetent google staff who give him canned responses about his deindexing from the job.:p
