You, like me, have likely watched hundreds of videos from Google's Matt Cutts. And if you have, you've likely seen the map in the background with the pin over Fes, which is a city in Morocco. Why Fes? Does it have anything to do with spam?
Bas van den Beld posted on Google+ asking and answering the question.
It happens to be that all of the rooms in the building Matt Cutts works in are named after cities in Africa, thus this room is named Fes and the poster is there to symbolize that. Matt actually answered this in May 2013 on Twitter - here is the tweet:
@MalcolmXon Fes was the name of the room we were in. All the rooms in my building are named after cities in Africa.— Matt Cutts (@mattcutts) May 15, 2013
This is just a neat tidbit and gives you absolutely nothing to take home and implement today with your SEO or SEM campaigns.
