The industry mourns the loss of John Carrick.

I am saddened to learn that John Carrick, an SEO who many of us know, has passed away suddenly. John Carrick has been in the SEO industry for over two decades, not only working day and night but also sharing his knowledge extensively with the SEO community. This man was so generous and kind, not only to his family and friends but also to many people he did not know in our industry. He was truly a legendary SEO and individual.

He dedicated himself to the industry for two decades and co-hosted SEO 101 on WebmasterRadio.fm with Russ Dunn for over 12 years.

Brenda Mellon was the first to inform and write about her death Twitter “SEO World has lost another great one – oJohnCarcutt, SEO Director at Advanced Local. He was my first SEO mentor and employer. Condolences to the Carcutt family and their SEO friends.” You can see the timeline of her career as a Director of SEO in LinkedIn with paid entry and paid search in the SEO space in 2002 and in Advanced Local in 2021.

His consistency in providing weekly SEO radio shows, every Wednesday evening at 5:00 pm EST, was incredibly impressive. You may also notice that we cited this site several times over the years, some in early 2006. I was on her show just a year ago – it’s very sad.

Here are some of the shocks and sorrows expressed by the SEO industry:

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

RIP John Carket.
