Matt Cutts: Google Distinguished EngineerI wanted to congratulate Matt Cutts on behalf of the search marketing community for his new title at Google, "Distinguished Engineer."

Danny Sullivan noticed that on his last blog post, his title was updated to Matt Cutts, Distinguished Engineer from Matt Cutts, Principal Engineer.

His boss, Google Fellow, Amit Singhal confirmed this promotion on Twitter saying:

Thanks to @dannysullivan for noticing @mattcutts' promotion -- a longtime friend and a "distinguished" colleague.

Matt Cutts also confirmed it on Twitter by thanking me for the congrats.

Matt is not only instrumental at Google for helping to build the world class search engine with Amit Singhal and Ben Gomes (also a distinguished engineer) and their team but has also revolutionized webmaster and search engine communication. In 2001, over a 10 years ago, he came to WebmasterWorld under the GoogleGuy alias to help webmasters. He comes to dozens of conferences, helped set up the webmaster support team, webmaster tools, does YouTube videos, answers questions in many forums and also on Twitter.

Matt is the face of Google to most search marketers and he deserves a huge amount of credit for helping to bridge that gap between search engineers and the search industry.

Congrats to Matt from all of us in the search industry!
