The shockwaves of this news are still settling in…as Danny Sullivan makes his announcement that he is Stepping Down From Search Engine Watch.

Come the end of the year, he will be leaving Search Engine Strategies as well. Hard to say how this will all play out, but suffice it to say that he’s earned many loyalties and where he goes, many will follow.

Discussion: Danny Sullivan Leaving SEW & SES

In his words: Leaving Search Engine Watch

Aside from SEW and SES, it’s far more likely I’ll be doing writing and conferences elsewhere. This might be for other companies, depending on what happens in the next few weeks. I’ve also entertained the notion of simply expanding my own consulting company and going it on my own with a new site and/or conferences. We’ll see.
