"No!" could very well be your response. But we have the news just right. Danny Sullivan is resigning from Search Engine Watch. Here are his own words to confirm it:

I'm leaving Search Engine Watch as of December 1, given that its owner Incisive Media and I have been unable to agree on terms to renew my contract. I'm also leaving the Search Engine Strategies conference series at the end of this year. Leaving Search Engine Watch on my personal blog Daggle explains my reasons for departing in more detail. I won't get all mushy and sad to say goodbye to readers yet, since I'm still planning to work just as hard as ever for Search Engine Watch through the end of November. I have no news on who will be taking over, but I or someone else from Search Engine Watch will keep you informed as Incisive makes those plans.

Danny says that he is not really unhappy with the way his initial handing over of Search Engine Watch to Jupitermedia has consequently progressed. That is with reference to the subsequent selling of the site to Incisive Media in 2005. Daany had then extended his contract till 2006, which is coming to an end in December. However he says:

I was concerned about moving forward with Incisive, however. I'm far from the only reason behind the success of SEW and SES, but I've played a major role. I helped build both of those assets. Then I watched one company sell them to another without me having any formal capital stake in the sale. That left me wary of history repeating itself. I wasn't going to help this new company grow the business out of the sheer kindness of my heart.
