    Not to rain on the parade, but what marketer is ever going to say something like “No, I wouldn’t hire him”?

    Especially while he still works at Google!

    I wouldn’t hire him. How could I possibly work with someone who knows more about the way Google does things than any SEO on the planet? The conversations would consist of:

    Matt, does Google do X?”

    “Michael, my non-disclosure runs out in 3 years but even then I would not want to ruin the results of what I feel is the best search engine in the universe.”

    “Matt, I don’t want to ruin the results. I want to improve them.”

    “For yourself.”

    “And your point is?”

    All of these SEO companies can make the offers to pay Matt these really high salaries but I think I can safely say that the gambling and or porn industries would easily top any offer. What do you say Matt wanna job with some perks? I promise the wife need know nothing ;)

    Were I able to afford it YES! Business would get better for sure.

    Why leave Google though? I’m gradually getting through the cool wearables at the Google Store – nice products

    John Furrier also offered Matt a job on his blog.

    “Matt: as the CEO of PodTech there is a job here for you :-) – Just drop me an email. The Cutts Show would be a winner!”

    I doubt that Matt would “work” for anyone after this. He may work WITH some people, but frankly the rules will be more or less his.

    $250K certainly wouldn’t do it, let’s be honest with ourselves :)
