It’s hard to resist writing about a piece of news like Danny Sullivan leaving Search Engine Watch. Danny is one of the "founding fathers", so to speak, of the search marketing industry – and Search Engine Watch was his brain-child. Although the activities at Search Engine Watch – blogging, article-writing and forum discussions – will continue forward under new management, the absence of Danny’s characteristic voice will certainly be noticed.
I’m far from the most qualified to write about this – I’ve never met Danny, so really I’m just going to point to a few other sources:
- Barry Schwartz, SE Roundtable
- Cre8asite Forums Thread
- Search Engine Watch Forums Thread
He’ll still be busy – the Daily Search Cast will continue at it’s new location, and it’s hard to imagine that he won’t either be snatched up by some search company or start his own. Watch Daggle.com for information on Danny’s new activities!
