About Me

Hi, my name is Matt Cutts and I joined Google as a software engineer in January 2000. I served as the head of Google’s webspam team for many years. Currently, I’m the acting administrator of the US Digital Service.

Before Google, I worked on my Ph.D. in computer graphics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I have an M.S. from UNC-Chapel Hill, and B.S. degrees in both mathematics and computer science from the University of Kentucky.

I wrote the first version of SafeSearch, which is Google’s family filter, and I’ve worked on search quality and webspam at Google for the last several years.
