The former head of search quality-webspam at Google: Matt Cutts, has announced he officially resigned from Google as of December 31, 2016. According to his announcement, he resigned from Google on December 31, 2016 and currently works as the director of engineering for the US Digital Service (USDS).

In 2014 he took a leave of absence from Google only to spend some of that time working with the US Didgital Service. His plan was to stay just for three months at the USDS but those three months turned into half a year and so on. As of Today, January 20th, Matt Cutts will take on the role of acting administrator for the USDS.

Cutts knows that government work isn’t as glamorous or lucrative as working for the search giant, but it sounds like it’s a sacrifice he’s willing to make for the rewarding work being done by the USDS. “The work that the USDS does is critical to the American people, and I’m honored to continue that tradition,” said Cutts in a statement released on his blog.

Probably this is the end of an era, so to speak! For years Cutts was one of Google’s most public figures, regularly attending conferences and communicating directly with SEOs and webmasters either on Twitter or his Q&A YouTube videos.
