Unnamed Person Taking Over Head Of Google Web Spam Team For Matt Cutts


I caught a weird facebook post on Friday on this but it looks like its confirmed here and here that there will be a new sheriff in town at the Google Webspam team, since Cutts remains on leave.

Interestingly, they seem (or at least the below implies) to be splitting the role into two, one that handles the ....operations... and one that is the spokesperson

"Google declined to name the person who has taken over Cutts’s role. The reason is simple. That person isn’t also assuming the other role that Cutts had played, that of being a general spokesperson about listing issues."

Overall  the commentary seems positive wishing Matt a good extended leave and thanking him for helping webmasters
