So… I know who the fake Cutts is
And, you know, this puts us in a little dilemma. Should I tell? Its really been fun reading gems like this;
A true poetic gem. Or this;
But… fake Cutts. We’re SEOs. We solve puzzles on the internet all day. I guess this time was coming. Hopefully we still all have some fun – but ya know a puzzle is a puzzle and I can’t help but to solve it – and then write a blog post about it!!
I’m bothered when I know a mystery can be solved (which I think makes me a good SEO)
And this just bugged me enough. I THOUGHT it was someone at SEER.
I believe the fake Cutts when he says he’s not from SEER. But THIS I took as a challenge I couldn’t resist…
And sooo torn at the same time. You’ve provided a lot of laughs in the last few months!! But, it’s time.
Chris @RootsWebSol is fake Cutts
There! I said it!! But you left tracks… so hopefully you know you’d get outed one day or another
Clue 1 – You Follow Yourself (but after about 50 other people)
Clue 2 – You “Both” just started following Steve Webb
Clue Three – Its in the tweets
Notice what’s similar?
- Almost the same time
- Same content
- Tweeting from a store
- 2 minutes apart
- English stuff like 50p (pounds)
What was my research method?
- Just looked at follow list, from the beginning
- Went “no” or “yes” based upon gut feeling
- If yes, checked for Echofon
- Chris was the first being followed who I went “yes” and used echofon.
- Put them both in a private list and saw that many tweets matched for timing, content and style.
I DO Disagree with 1 thing…
You will be JUST as hilarious now that we know who you are. PLEASE keep doing what you’re doing!!!! It’s truly hilarious and I personally laugh when fake Cutts shows up in my timeline with stuff like this:
If I’m wrong (which I hope I’m not) I’m going to feel REALLLLYYY dumb!!!
What does the world think – d’you agree? @RootsWebSol is @rnattcutts??
