Finally…A Drinking Game for Digital Marketers!!
Tandem Interactive is a boutique digital marketing agency in Fort Lauderdale – but don’t let the “boutique” aspect fool you. Our team of marketing experts handle Search Engine Optimization, Pay-Per-Click, Social Media Marketing, Public Relations, Video Marketing, E-Commerce, Brand Reputation, Local SEO, Landing Page Optimization, and many more services that work together to bring your company to the forefront of a Google search.
Just when you thought Tandem Interactive couldn’t possibly do anymore, we’ve got yet another trick up our sleeves. Spending hours conducting Google searches each day, our team members eventually decided to create a game out of our frequent searches, which we rolled out at our Tandem Tailgate in February of this year. Digital marketers everywhere: sit back, relax, grab a refreshing drink, and turn your Google search to incognito mode. Tandem Interactive presents to you our very SEO drinking game, which we’ve dubbed the Tandem Waterfall Game.
How it works:
- The game can be played with 3 or more people
- Every player must set their google browsers to incognito, (press the Private mode on your search) and go to Google.com
- Grab a refreshing drink (preferably an ice-cold beer)
- The first person to start comes up with a search query, which they will type into their incognito browser. Some G-rated examples are “Why does my….”
Or “The best time to…”
Get as creative as you want with your searches, trust us: you’re guaranteed to be shocked and entertained at how bizarre the country’s most searched phrases are.
Examples of search queries you can start with:
- “Can you get…”
- “How do you make…”
- “How to hide a…”
- “My girlfriend told me…”
- “Where can I find…”
- “Is it bad if…”
- “My husband is…”
On an iPhone, Google will provide you with the top 5 search results. (For the sake of the game we will assume all our digital marketing friends are using phones.) The other players must go around in a circle, and each player gets one guess at the phrases that appear in the top search results for your query.
Here are the rules of the Google Waterfall Game!
- If a player guesses a phrase that is not in the top 5 search results, they must drink.
- If a player guesses a phrase that is in the top 5 search results, they can pick someone else to drink.
- If a player guesses the #1 search result from your query, the “Googler” drinks.
- If after each person has unsuccessfully guessed, the Googler can choose anyone in the group to drink.
- The person who guesses the #1 term gets to take control of the search next, and the other players must guess the top 5 answers that come up in the Google Search.
For the most daring of the digital marketers out there, Tandem challenges you to Extreme Google Waterfall, which calls for varying penalties if the players guess wrong.
Level 1 – Take a sip
Level 2 – Down your drink
Level 3 – Take a shot
The Tandem SEO drinking game can be played anywhere, anytime. Play it when you’re at your desk with coffee (or something better), play it as a pregame before a night out, or even to cool off from a long week of penetrating SERPs. Either way, just make sure you enjoy the official SEO drinking game of the Tandem Tailgate. Bottoms up!
