Danny Sullivan's Biography

Danny Sullivan is a California-based technologist, journalist and an entrepreneur. Widely considered a leading search engine expert, Danny has been helping webmasters, marketers and everyday web users understand how search engines work for over a decade.  He first began covering search engines in late 1995, when he undertook a study of how they indexed web pages. The results were published online as “A Webmaster’s Guide To Search Engines,” a pioneering effort to answer the many questions site designers and Internet publicists had about search engines. Today, his expertise about search engines is often sought by the media, and he has been quoted in places like The Wall St. Journal, USA Today, The Los Angeles Times, Forbes, The New Yorker and Newsweek and ABC’s Nightline.

Danny was the Chief Content Officer at Third Door Media, and co-founded Search Engine Land, an industry publication that covers news and information about search engines, and search marketing, SEO and SEM topics. Third Door Media also produces Marketing Land, a sister website that covers broader digital marketing topics including social media, display advertising, email marketing, analytics, mobile, and marketing technology. Search Engine Land and Marketing Land are owned by Third Door Media, of which Danny was partner.   He retired from his position as Chief Content Officer at Third Door Media in June 2017.

In October 2017, Danny announced he would be joining Google as an adviser at the search division of the company, where he helps to educate the public about search, to explore and explain issues that may arise with search, and takes feedback from the public to help promote solutions.
