When’s Matt Cutts Back From Vacation Countdown Clock

Thomas Bindl does what I was hoping someone would do — make a
countdown clock for when
Google’s Matt Cutts is returning from
his
vacation
, spotted via
Threadwatch. I’ve seen a number of posts in various places suggesting that
Google has been having its recent spam and indexing problems because Matt’s
finally taken a nice, long break. Bull. Matt’s great, a huge resource to Google,
but the problems going on seem far more fundamental than Matt being away. If
they really are due to him being gone, then Google has even bigger issues to
deal with. Still, plenty of us will be happy to see him return and jump back
into the search conversation.
