Tim Mayer Leaves Yahoo, Kinda Like Matt Cutts Leaving Google

Yesterday, Tim Mayer of Yahoo tweeted that he is no longer at Yahoo.

Finishing up my first day post-Yahoo: Was very busy today- need to make time for a long bike ride tomorrowless than a minute ago via web

Tim Mayer, if you don't know him, was like the Matt Cutts of Google but to Yahoo. I first sat down to chat with him one on one at a PubCon in 2004. He is a great guy, well respected in the industry and as Danny described he practically worked at every search engine out there.

Tim was responsible for launching Site Explorer, the No Yahoo Directory tag, spoke at many conferences, hosted a radio show on WebmasterRadio.FM and so much more.

I guess since Yahoo is out of the search game, there is no purpose for him to be there now. But it is sad to see him not with a search engine. Well, he may be at a search engine, but he didn't say which yet.

We asked the question, what if Matt Cutts left Google? Well, what if Tim Mayer left Yahoo? Well, there is no Yahoo Search anymore - so I guess there is the answer.
