Frustrated SEOs: Try The Whack-a-Cutts Game

Mar 5, 2014 • 8:15 am | comments (17) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Other Google Topics

Since these two SEO games came out, there has been many more following the trend of making themed games around the search community. I've skipped and have not covered many of them but I am going to cover the Whack A Cutts game because - well, there are a lot of frustrated SEOs out there and this might help relieve some of the frustration.

The Whack-a-Cutts Game

It is a basic game where Matt Cutts taunts you with SEO stories and then you whack his head, like the Whac-A-Mole game. You gain points for whacking him.

Poor Matt but I bet he gets a kick out of these things.

Forum discussion at Google+.

Update: Matt Cutts himself even played the game:

When ever Matt used the word 'Spammers' he was actually meant 'SEOs' - It took 6 years for me to learn that bit.

replace SEOs with Crap SEOs who try to game the system and you'd be right.

Replace Crap SEOs with affiliate marketers and you'd be right.

Looks like you are a newbie. There are no black or white or grey or Crap SEOs. Google treat all SEOs same, as in SEM (Search engine Manipulators)

If they're THAT frustrated, maybe they should just whack off.

Funny game.... But that's really bad to use someone's face

Is there a difference? :)

Google don't treat SEOs at all, they treat websites. If an SEO is stupid enough to use dodgy tactics, they get caught. I think you've revealed who the newbie is and its not me. I realise you might be bitter because your cheap and easy tactics don't work any more, but its not my fault you don't know how to do SEO properly.

@StevenLockey:disqus you talk as if you work for Google or know as in absolutes, I know for a fact that I've watched a Google video stating the exact opposite a couple years back. Google does now if you've spammed in the past and does monitor "you" (Big Spammers). Stop talking in absolutes as if you "know", unless you have a direct statement from someone from the web spam team or that worked in a particular department that handles specifics for anything you're talking about your comments have no substance.

Cutts, sorry .o.o.o.o.oo when every SEO and webmaster whacks your head it iron hammer will you ever survive?? Sorry be a man and just suck it up

*Sigh* Really? You think they check who did the SEO on a particular website? Or even in many cases if any was done at all. They go after link networks, which is a bit different and not really to do with anything that was been discussed. How would Google even know who has done SEO on a particular website? There would be absolutely no way for them to have any idea if I've worked on site A, B and C but not site D or E which used similar techniques. My statement was the equivalent to saying "if you jump off that building, you are going to hit the floor hard", its a pretty much a foregone conclusion. I'm sorry if using common sense offends you.
