By now, you’ve probably seen Jeremy Zawodny’s post: he’s joining Google, and I’m leaving Google for a new job at Yahoo! This is part of Yahoo!’s acquisition of all Web 2.0 companies (I did a panel at the Web 2.0 conference, and I recently found out that I’m included in the acquisition). Jeremy is being modest; it’s basically a blogger-for-blogger swap, but he’s got more than three times as many readers on Bloglines, so Google is contributing about 2,500 computers to even out the deal. It’s basically one computer per Bloglines subscriber, so the terms of the swap were “Google gets Jeremy, Yahoo! gets Matt + 2,546 computers,” I believe.
We had a hard time deciding what to do with our blogs, because people come to my site to hear more about Google, and people go to Jeremy’s blog to hear a little more about Yahoo! To make it easier on our readers, we’re swapping blogs too: I’ll be posting over at Jeremy’s blog, and Jeremy will start posting here. I know it sounds complicated, but I’m sure people will get used to it. Just remember: before, I posted on http://www.mattcutts.com/blog/ about Google. Now, I’ll be posting on http://jeremy.zawodny.com/blog/ about Yahoo! See you over there!
Note: I just saw that Scoble is coming to Google too. So we may have to work out some sort of round-robin blogging arrangement; maybe I’ll spend 20% of my time up in Seattle with Microsoft.
