Matt Cutts MosesI am not sure that Matt Cutts will enjoy this too much but hey, if you ever see him at an SEO convention, it may appear as if he is a god. So why not be dressed like moses, holding the ten commandments in his hands with a halo-like glow behind him?

Steve Toth put together the 10 Commandments of SEO infographic and featured Cutts at the top. The 10 commandments include:

Thou Shalt Not:

(1) Have an Unnatural Link Profile

(2) Cloak and Use Hidden Text

(3) Steal / Duplicate Content

(4) Spin Content

(5) Stuff Keywords

(6) Spam Google Maps

(7) Create Microsites

(8) Sell Links

(9) Go Overboard on Ads

(10) Create Multiple Websites to Rank for the Same Business

If Steve Toth prints the infographic on a poster, I'll bet dollars to doughnuts that Matt Cutts will be happy to pin it up on the wall of his office, basement bar, or mancave. P.S.: The infographic is beautifully done. Kudos to the artist!

Now all we need is Matt to dress up in a robe in his next video.

It seems to be a good list. However, Google itself is not following this. Recent update saw that Google ranked multiple sites of the same business on the same page. Violating the last point. I even reported that to Google, only to see an increase in ranks for those sites :). Google has gone bonkers and with so many updates, they have themselves forgotten the core.....

Witty, humorous, informative all combined in one. I hope Matt Cutts enjoys this one and loosens up a little and make our lives a little easier for a change.
