Matt Cutts has quite a following for a search engine engineer, and with good reason. He’s in a pretty powerful position, leading the webspam team at Google, and being a “Distinguished Engineer” at the company and all. When webmasters want to know why the things they’re doing (or aren’t doing) are affecting their search rankings, Cutts (either directly or indirectly) is often the first person they turn to for advice.

With this popularity, comes parody. Sure, we’ve seen the fake Matt Cutts commenting throughout the Blogosphere, pretending to be the real Matt Cutts, but other impostors are more transparent, and are clearly just having fun with no ill will intended.

Take, for example, this Matt Cutts parody video:

There’s a Matt Cutts parody account on Twitter: @rnattcutts. It’s been around for a while, and has amassed over 600 followers so far. It looks like the account started in mid April, close to Penguin time. Here are some of the tweets:

As I said, the account is not maliciously impersonating Cutts. The bio says: “I’m the head of the web sparn team at Google. I love fried chicken & hate anchor text (parody).”

Cutts tends to be a good sport about it all. Someone tweeted him a Google algorithm parody article about the “Scissors Update,” and he acknowledged that he has a pretty thick skin:

 

 

 

 

@cstechjoel if I had a thin skin I would have switched to a different job years ago. :)
