  • Comment 3: Google doesn't communicate a lot about their search engine (which is normal). From time to time, they might address particular issues that is brought to them, with specific videos or specific articles on their blogs, but the general rule is no comment, stick to our guidelines and everything will be fine. However, they usually do have an official spokeperson who is in charge of communicating about publisher and webmaster issues, online and in conferences. From 2005 to 2015, it was Matt Cutts, head of the Web Spam Team. Since September 2017, it's Danny Sullivan, who is the first "Google Search Liaison".
