Internet marketers, wherever they are in the world, they owe their big thanks to Matt Cutts.
He is the Google search engine master, the one-man-show, the spam-wrestler, the face of Google’s all-powerful search algorithm, the influencer of all digital influencers and the primary reason for sleep deprivation in the SEO community.
Matt has kept webmasters of the world educated on Google’s best practices for search engine marketing since 2009. He was an engineer at Google, responsible for search quality and helped webmasters understand how search works.
In January 2017, he announced to have resigned from Google. He decided to join US Digital Service and has been appointed the director of engineering for that governmental department.
Here are few reasons why we would like to offer Matt Cutts a job at SEO Egypt.
He is passionate and enjoys what he does.
The SEO celebrity took a leave in mid of 2016 to contribute to USDS. What started as a 3-month project with USDS, extended to a 6-months task. He loved it very much and found it fulfilling. It was time for him to move on and work on big government problems instead of working on problems at Google. Finally, he decided to leave Google and join a governmental organization to do good and influence more lives. He said in his blog announcement that his work is deeply important and inspiring, and he has a chance to work on things that genuinely make peoples’ lives better.
He uses his Great PR Skills.
Through a series of YouTube videos and regular blog posts, he became a friendly face from the group of Elite Googlers to understand exactly how Google search works. He frequently attended conferences and provided invaluable contributions to our industry and to Google.
He gives back to the community.
He has made hundreds of videos answering queries about SEO, gaining 200K+ subscribers and 25M+ views. He also wrote the first version of SafeSearch, Google’s family filter.
He puts Customers first, always.
Matt Cutts and his team at Google have kept the end user their priority, always. He is responsible for finding a balance, putting the user in charge of search engine ranking. He has prevented subpar websites from pulling the right strings to come out on top. He is also popular amongst the digital community for translating technical Google Search changes in clear language.
He is Influencer of Influencers.
The tech geeks worldwide have worshipped him, have spammed him, have made websites solely dedicated to him and his work, have his every word decoded and summarized his videos in just 3 words. A group of SEO geeks even tried to predict Google’s algorithm updates based on Cutts’ shirt colors in YouTube videos. Perhaps, they thought, if we could, SEO community would be able to sleep better at night.
He works for greater good.
In his blog post, Cutts has admitted that his new job might not be as glamorous, rewarding or lucrative as working for one of the largest companies in the world, but it sounds like it’s a sacrifice he’s willing to make for the rewarding work being done by the USDS.
So Mr. Cutts, whenever you’re ready. But till you decide to join us, we would like to thank you on behalf of all SEO community. Billions of people have benefited in some way from your insight and judgment. This marks the end of an era but thank you for making this world a better place.
