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+.

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.
