IMO: Bill Lambert Is Not A Googler Or Google Spy

The problem with having comments on a blog is that anyone can pretend to be anyone and say anything they want. It is why most blogs removed comments, outside of all the spam you need to manage. We have an issue here with someone claiming (not even claiming but acting as) a Googler, or a Google spy, or someone with inside Google intel, who comments here.

This person goes under the alias of Bill Lambert. He posts here randomly, often giving advice around Google issues, advice that real Googlers would never give. He also tries to predict when Google will roll out updates. Sometimes he is close on those predictions and sometimes he is off. With predicting core updates, you don't need to be that smart, Google has rolled them out at the end of beginning of every quarter or so for the past few times.

I analyzed all the Bill Lambert comments on this site, looked at many things and I really do not believe he is a real Googler or a Google spy. I don't believe he is for a bunch of reasons including his IP addresses will be in Europe for a few weeks, then in Asia, then in the US. He sticks with an IP address and then it changes his next go around. Yea, he can use proxies and various methods to cloak his IP, I get it. Another reason is that in the past he posted with different names with the same IP address. The way he talks is not like a real Googler would talk. A real Googler has no reason to spend so much time here as he does.

Oh and John Mueller from Google said he is not a Googler this morning on Twitter:

There are so many SEOs now citing what Bill writes here in various forums, on Twitter, on SEO blogs and so on - it is not a good thing.

Is it at all possible this Bill character is a real Google spy? I guess. But if you ask me my opinion, I think he is just trolling everyone and having a blast doing it.

My advice, assume Bill is just a troll and not a Googler. It doesn't do you any good anyway to believe he is a real Googler anyway.
