Bill, I am terribly sorry to hear about your recent health news. I have never (yet) had the privilege of meeting you in person, but I feel as if I know you because of your prolific writing on deep, technical SEO topics. Despite you not realizing it, you have been a secret mentor to me in my career, a resource of incredible intellect. And I am so grateful to you for that.

I suppose I do realize that you have been helping everyone else all along, but I like to think of you as my mentor. Thank you for everything you’ve done for the SEO community, and I look forward to you resuming your invaluable work, but only after you’ve taken the time needed to recover your health. That’s what’s most important right now. Take care!
