Oh, snap! GUUHGL - How much pain can one SEO take?
…you've probably asked yourself the same question when you've seen particularly bizarre, hair-raising or questionable implementations flickering across your monitor.
Sometimes hardening is a good solution to arm yourself for the real world out there. We're going full confrontational with our deck of cards. A hypersensitization program, so to speak, for all SEOs who know this dizzying combination of fascination and disbelief all too well.
If you want us to send you a game for free (you'll only have to cover the shipping), please contact us here and we will send one on its way. Don't forget your address!
If you like, feel free to check out our newsletter (Oh, snap! German only - but you know how this can be solved, don't you…) while you're there.
To play you need:
- deck of cards
- teammates (optional)
- suffering ability and SEO know-how
Everyone is seated and has a drink? There is enough space on the table? Cards are shuffled?
Then you're good to go!
At the beginning, each person draws two cards randomly from the deck and sorts them face up on the table in front of them in ascending order of SEO pain.
The person whose main domain has the lowest visibility (SISTRIX) starts. He/she draws a card face down from the deck and reads the description to his/her left neighbor. This / This must now guess where this SEO horror story is to be classified according to pain score between the cards in front of him. If they are correct, the card is sorted accordingly.
If not, the card goes to the "Graveyard" pile.
The game continues in a clockwise direction:
- draw card and read aloud
- guess classification
- pick up card or put it away
Whoever has 6 cards first wins.
You can also find the game instructions on the back of the box.
Have fun playing!

This highly scientific process is top secret. But maybe it was just a survey among these SEO luminaries. An equal mix of females, males, in-house, agency, and freelancers weighed the pain against each other in an explicitly statistically sound process. When playing, it helps to get inside the heads of our jury.
