Danny Sullivan leaving Search Engine Watch

Search industry pundit Danny Sullivan is leaving his popular Search Engine Watch website and Search Engine Strategies conferences at the end of this year. Danny is viewed by the community as synonymous with both brands, and an independent expert in all things search since he’s been following the industry for over 10 years.

I’m sure lots of search companies are contacting Danny right now to apply his specialized knowledge within their walls. I hope he does his own thing and takes full ownership stakes, but I have a feeling a big company might snatch him up. Yahoo! took Danny to the World Cup so they must have an early lead.
