Industry mourns loss of John Carcutt


I am so sad to report that John Carcutt, an SEO that many of us have known, has passed away suddenly. John Carcutt has been in the SEO industry for two decades, not only working day in and day out, but also sharing his knowledge with the SEO community at large. This man was so generous and kind, not just to his family and friends, but to so many people he didn’t even know in our industry. He was truly a SEO and a legendary individual.

He had devoted two decades to the industry and co-hosted SEO 101 on for over 12 years with Russ Dunn.

Brenda Malone first informed me of her death and wrote the Twitter “The SEO world has lost another great – @JohnCarcutt, SEO director at Advance Local. He was my first SEO mentor and employer. Condolences to the Carcutt family and their SEO friends.” You can check out his career timeline in the SEO space at LinkedIn from 2002 with paid inclusion and paid search and in 2021 as SEO director at Advance Local.

His consistency in providing a weekly SEO radio show, every Wednesday at 5:00 PM EST, was incredibly impressive. You can even see that over the years we have quoted him several times on this site, some as early as 2006. I was precisely on his show. about a year ago – it’s so sad.

Here is some of the shock and sadness expressed by the SEO industry:

As soon as I hear of a GoFund me or something where we can help the Carcutt family, I will update this story, so check back in a few days.

RIP John Carcutt.
