Google’s Matt Cutts Living It Up on Vacation, Kinda

Posted on in Blog

Matt Cutts made a big announcement last week. The head of Google’s webspam team says he’ll be on leave through October. But Matt!

For those who don’t know, Matt Cutts is Google’s top cop. When Matt speaks (or blogs or tweets), SEOs listen and they listen hard. While he’s not announcing a new filter or issuing a cryptic warning against dated practices, we couldn’t help but wade into his latest announcement.

Matt Cutts, what on Earth will you be doing for the next four months?

In his blog, he mentions ballroom dancing, a half Ironman and an early 15th anniversary trip with his wife. He also says he will not be checking his work email. At Oneupweb, we couldn’t help but wonder, “What else will you be doing while not checking your work email?”

And here’s what we imagine his vacation photos will look like…


1.) Ballroom dancing (he can really “cutt” a rug!)

2.) Relaxing with some light reading

3.) Enjoying the Great Outdoors


4.) Taking a swing at some putt-putt

5.) Horseback riding lessons

What an incredible vacation! The only thing missing is a trip to Traverse City, Michigan.
