Google’s webspam king says he’s unplugging from work, even email (!) for a few months


Google(s goog) Distinguished Engineer Matt Cutts says he’s going offline for a few months. Cutts, who heads Google’s webspam team and helped drive the recent controversial Panda 4.0 search algorithm update, is going to shut down, tune out, maybe do a little ballroom dancing and otherwise stay away from work until (probably) October. And to that, we should all say mazel tov.

Cutts unveiled his plan on his blog on Thursday.

One critical point is that I won’t be checking my work email at all while I’m on leave. My friend and colleague Amit Singhal took about six weeks off not too long ago, and his #1 piece of advice was to unplug from work email. So that’s what I’m going to do. I will set up Gmail filters to forward some of my outside email to a small set of webspam folks, but they won’t be replying to emails.
