As many of you know, Yahoo opened up a bunch of inactive usernames for people to register and use in the future. Soon Yahoo will be announcing who got which usernames. But for those who want to track who got those usernames, you could have signed up for a small fee to do so.

Google's head of search spam, Matt Cutts, took the opportunity to track some usernames. He posted a screen shot of the usernames he signed up to track on Google+.

The Yahoo Usernames Google's Matt Cutts Is Following

A mind of a man who has been dealing with web spam for almost half of his life...

The list includes:

  • viagra
  • poker
  • paydayloans
  • insurance
  • mesothelioma

Interesting to see the top keywords on Matt's mind.

4 of those are no-brainers, I wouldn't have guessed insurance though

Insurance is one of the spammed-to-death set of queries. Car, boat, and other vehicle insurance seems to be, from my browsing experience, full of crap, scams, spam sites built for ad sense, and spammy affiliates.

Of what use is it to people to use keyword as their email usernames?
