Matt Cutts Is Going On Leave For Several Months

matt cutts meta descriptions

Matt Cutts, Google’s head of search spam, announced today that he will be going on leave for several months. Matt cited the need to spend more time with his wife as being among the key reasons behind his decision to go on leave.

When I joined Google, my wife and I agreed that I would work for 4-5 years, and then she’d get to see more of me… And now, almost fifteen years later I’d like to be there for my wife more. I know she’d like me to be around more too, and not just physically present while my mind is still on work.

Matt’s leave is scheduled to start next week, after which time he will be gone through October. He has the utmost confidence in the webspam team while he’s gone, saying that they’re much better at spam fighting than even he is.

Matt won’t be checking work email while he’s gone, at all. This is a point he repeated several times throughout his announcement. Gmail filters will be set up to forward some of his outside email to individuals on the webspam team, but they won’t be replying to those emails.

While Matt’s gone, how can you communicate with Google about search topics or find out about new things in search? Here’s his advice:

There’s still tons of ways, from our webmaster forums to Office Hours Hangouts where you can ask questions to experts. On the social side, instead of sending SEO-related comments to me on Twitter, you can ping the Google Webmaster Central account. Likewise, make sure you follow Google Webmasters on Google+. A bunch of different Googlers will continue to speak and answer questions at search conferences too.

Matt has some fun things scheduled for his time off, he explains. Including taking a ballroom dance classes with my wife, and we’re going on a cruise in late August. He also intends to spend more time visiting his parents, and he’s going to try his hand at a half-Ironman race.

We hope Matt enjoys his well deserved time off.

Watch out WhatsApp: Google may be launching a free messaging app very soon

Software giant Google Inc plans to launch a mobile messaging app it is likely to test in India and other emerging markets, the Economic Times reported on Friday, citing sources.

If launched, the mobile app will compete in the mobile chat space with the likes of WhatsApp, Line and Hike.

The daily said Google was in the early stages of development of the app, which will not make it mandatory to use a Google login. Moreover, unlike WhatsApp, where users have to pay Rs 53 annually after one year of usage, Google's messaging app will be free.

The Mountain View, California-based company is also looking at localisation, by adding Indian language support and voice-to-text messaging, the newspaper said.

A Google spokeswoman said the company did not comment on speculation.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's Zombies Sold Separately As Part of $50 DLC Pass

Fans were excited when last week a leaked trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare seemed to show that a Zombies mode would be making it into the game. As Advanced Warfare is from Sledgehammer, Activision’s newest developer recruit, it was unknown if Zombies, a Treyarch tradition, would appear as a mode in the new game.

Now, we have confirmation that Zombies are indeed coming to Advanced Warfare, but how they’re coming might upset fans.

Announced by a GameStop press release, access to an upcoming Zombies mode is granted through the purchase of the game’s mammoth $50 DLC Season Pass, which includes five maps from the get-go, all maps after that, and now apparently, Zombies.

Though Call of Duty is known for its traditional deathmatch-style multiplayer and summer blockbuster-esque story campaigns, there is a huge contingent of fans who adore Zombies, and some who play it almost exclusively, as it’s a very different type of game than any of the other modes with its own kind of strategy and…
