Danny Sullivan Retires – Digital Knowledge for the Intelligence Era

Danny Sullivan Retires – Digital Knowledge for the Intelligence Era

Air Date: June 29, 2017


Kristine Schachinger joins me to talk about the news of the week, including:

  • Danny Sullivan announced his quasi-retirement earlier this week. Danny is widely regarded as the Godfather of the SEO industry. Danny is the founder of Search Engine Land and Marketing Land, and the SMX conference series. He also founded Search Engine Watch and the SEW conference series. After 21 years of running sites and covering search marketing he said it was time for a change. Danny will act as an adviser to Third Door Media, the company Danny founded with Chris Sherman and Sean Moriarty which publishes Search Engine Land, Digital Marketing Depot, Marketing Land, and MarTech Today, and produces the SMX and MarTech conferences.
  • ALSO: The European Union slaps Google with a record €2.4 billion ($2.7 billion) antitrust fine. The European Commission found that the U.S. tech giant denied “consumers a genuine choice” by using its search engine to unfairly steer them to its own shopping platform. Regulators said that Google must change its behavior within 90 days or face additional penalties.
