Its A Trap

Matt Cutts, the former Google spam fighting lead, now the Administrator of the United States Digital Service, said on Twitter that he still has a "few honeypot traps" to catch SEOs and then will report them for fun.

I suspect when he said "honeypot traps" he means his blog, which probably still get a lot of traffic from SEOs and probably a lot of spammy requests as well. The funny thing is this happened a lot when Matt was actively working at Google.

We all get these types of emails asking for links, selling DA, PR, etc. I am sure Matt does as well, and I am sure many Googlers do too.
