    Danny Sullivan,...Going...Going...Gone


    With much dismay I read that Danny Sullivan apparently has had some tough contract negotiations with the new SEW and SES owners. It's going to be tough to see him leave them, but he'll never leave SEO. He's addicted like the rest of us.

    I kind of wonder on which side, and what concession was the deal-breaker, but I guess that's neither here nor there.

    If its corporate-side, it will surface, and I think be a real black eye for the company.

    Here's the article

    Good Luck Danny

    It will continue as normal. Incisive has already been in charge of that sector. I think they felt a little different, but I'm sure with any good business sense they will come out of this. My guess is they will pose an open forum to all participants either on the net or at an SES and try to win everyone over with their overwhelming need to fulfill our every wish.

    But hey, that doesn't sound so bad.

    Danny Sullivan will go independent to spend more time with his family IMO. He'll still be around, just not in the same familiar way.

    Agreed, I think incesive can afford to let hm go at this point in time. SEO is booming and they can simply ride the wave.

    Gary,

    Thanks for the post. Reminds me of when I heard about the passing of Cory Rudl last year. I was reading Danny's stuff back in 1999 although I haven't been to the SEW site in a while (it is way too cluttered to me). Danny taught me a lot in the early years with his newsletter. I wish him the best too.
