    Default Convert SEO tools into a video game

    Would be cool to have a game where you play it and it does the SEO work for you. So instead of traditional SEO tools interface it would be a game interface. Instead of mining gold player is building backlinks. When a player builds a building in the game then a Facebook or Twitter account is created. Player builds something else then a website is created.

    Google will be the foes and players are the good guys.

    The idea behind automation is to minimize user participation, not increase it

    So you trying to add complexity over an amazingly complex thing like automating link building? Unless you find a country where slavery is still allowed and u have slaves play your game, or you figure out how to trick users into studying link building and actually doing a very tedious and boring work, there's no chance you make that work. Even if you give Angelina Jolie as a prize after 200 links 99% of the users will quit the game because it is boring as fuck to build links.

    In his case yes, but I know cases where user participation was the automation - building porn/proxy/torrent sites and showing a captcha do do some action - captcha was for a captcha breaking service. Same way but using a game Google managed to label with keywords in a test millions of images.

    Default Re: Convert SEO tools into a video game

    It's a fun thought. I actually tried something like this a long time ago, though not for SEO. I was developing an AOL prog, and thought it would be cool to have a GUI that allowed you to walk up to "IM Punt" (for example), whack it with a sword, and have a new window appear with the punt-specific options. It became very tedious to test with, trying to perfect my collision-detection algorithm (as back then, there was very limited documentation), and eventually the idea was scrapped. While it worked a little, it was very tedious, trying to walk to each button & perform an action to activate a command. Clicking was much faster/better/more appropriate.

    Now imagine trying to constructively implement something related to SEO. Will be a royal pain in the ass. Also, IIRC, you were the one trying to learn a programming language, correct? I'd advise you to start smaller, like building a nice splash screen.

    Yes, this was used a lot before the decaptching services. If I remember correctly, I 've read about this trick more than a decade ago
