As Vanessa Fox writes at Search Engine Land yesterday, Google has kept up their tradition of providing support on Christmas day via Google Groups forums.
Last year, it was Googler's Adam Lasnik and Vanessa Fox found working on Christmas and this year it was John Mueller from Google Webmaster Central AdSensePro Jordan providing support for both webmaster related questions and publisher questions.
Now, keep in mind that John Mueller is based in Switzerland. Here are his posts throughout Christmas eve and day at Google Groups:
- Please help: sitemap error: Paths don't match -- but the should?!
- 301 several pages to one - will this harm rank?
- Hit with a penalty, but not de-indexed?
- A Google search inserted into html
- dot .mac indexing
- example sites with no follow links?
- Sitemap by Atom 1.0 feed?
- Happy Holidays!
Not only was John active in the Google Groups forums, he was also active at Cre8asite Forums. As you can see by his Cre8asite Profile John was last active yesterday at Yesterday, 06:25 PM.
John was not the only Googler active in forums. AdSensePro Jordan, a newish AdSense rep posted in a forum thread.

So there you have it, Google continues the tradition of support on Christmas!
