Today marks Danny Sullivan's last day at Search Engine Watch, 10 years after beginning the industry's leading publication for search engine news. Danny's undeniable passion, knowledge, and dedication to the growth of the search engine industry is well ingrained within the archives of Search Engine Watch, and will carry on long after his departure.
Danny Sullivan will continue to organize and host several major Search Engine Strategies events for Incisive Media within the upcoming year, including next week's SES Chicago, SES NYC in April, and SES San Jose in August 2007. Chris Sherman, Danny's ‘partner in search crime', will gradually take over Danny's programming work and remains Search Engine Watch Editor until the end of the year.
Danny's final Search Engine Report for Search Engine Watch will be published on December 1. Danny's new editorial venture, Search Engine Land, will launch shortly. In our opinion, we are happy to see any and all enterprises that raise the profile of this growing industry & wish him the best in his new venture.
At Search Engine Watch, our commitment to the search marketing community remains strong, with continued in-depth coverage of search engine technology, search marketing products, industry events and happenings, related news and community discussion. While the underlying mission of Search Engine Watch remains the same, there will be some exciting changes in the coming weeks and months, including the creation of a new reporting staff, bringing fresh perspectives from various search analysts, as well as upgrade in site usability and functionality.
Head over to the Search Engine Watch Forums to share your thoughts, well wishes for Danny Sullivan and support for the remaining SEW staff.
Stay tuned for what's next at Search Engine Watch, and expect some additional announcements during the SES Chicago conference next week, and shortly thereafter.
