Danny Sullivan leaving Search Engine Watch

This morning Danny Sullivan posted on his blog,, that he will be leaving Search Engine Watch.

Danny explained that in the past year since Jupiter Media sold SEW to Incisive Media, things were not progressing in a way that he was comfortable contributing to. And so, his contract with Incisive Media will not be renewed.

Danny will chair SES Chicago in December, but he says it is unlikely that he will be a part of any further Search Engine Strategies conferences.

What will happen now? That’s really hard to say. Danny is wise and has a great following. Whatever he chooses to do, he will no doubt find success and support. Right now I think its hard to say how it will impact the SEO/SEM world – but no matter what, I think there’s a lot of potential for new growth and I’m anxious to see what happens.

Danny Sullivan in USA Today

I’m a few days behind, but I’ve finally had the time to sit down and read USA Today’s article on Danny Sullivan.

Search Engine Watch was definately one of my first stops when I began my SEO journey, and it became clear early on that not only did Danny know what he was doing, but that many of the other major players in the industry have a great deal of respect for him and his knowledge.

Looking forward to learning more from the man himself next week in San Jose.
