Ex-Googler Vanessa Fox to start new company

I guess, because it's today (April Fools Day), I have to qualify just about everything I post.

(For those new to 'these parts', about half of what you find on blogs and websites today, can, and will be, April Fools jokes).

This story isn't.

Late yesterday, Vanessa Fox broke a little news of her own, on her personal blog.

Fox, best known for spearheading Google's Webmaster Central, left Google some time ago to join Richard Barton and crew at real estate start-up Zillow.

Last year, she made yet another move, to Danny Sullivan's Search Engine Land and also as an 'entrepreneur in residence' at Ignition Partners. (She's also a regular on the SEO / SEM speaking circuit).

Vanessa Fox is ready to start a new company in concert with her role at Ignition Partners.

Can she find the right people to accomplish what she's setting out to do?
