Matt Cutts, Still Leaves Honeypot Traps For SEOs


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.
