The Cult of Cutco Tries Desperately to Knock Me Off Google

Vector Marketing Scam

My most popular post currently, in terms of per-day page hits, is my old exposé on Vector Marketing:

The Cult of Cutco: How Vector Marketing Mass-Hires Students into Dubious Contract Labor

Vector Marketing caught on and, realizing they could lose a bunch of money on a Google Search, bought a bunch of shitty domain names to bump down all the talk about how everyone hates Vector Marketing.

They even bought with links to… personal testimonies! *gasp* Read a real story by a real 18-year-old kid!

I understand SEO, Vector Marketing, I see it.

Anyway, if you are a pissed off former Vector employee, go the original Cult of Cutco article and share it. If you want to blog about Vector also and link me, please copy paste the entire post title or use the phrase “Vector Marketing Scam,” because I think those are the two easiest way to help bump my Google rankings back up.

There are easy share buttons at the bottom of the article too. I think the one that gets the most exposure these days is Reddit.

So, thanks, guys. Rock on spreading the information.

  1. My girlfriend was supposed to get a job there today and she found out it was a scam. I’m pretty pissed about it.

  2. Thank you a bunch for sharing this with all people you actually recognize what you’re speaking
    about! Bookmarked. Kindly additionally discuss with myy web
    site =). We can have a hyperlink exchange avreement among us

  3. I worked there this summer for a few weeks and I think you’re being too hard on them. They definitely try to make it seem better than it is, but it’s far from a scam, and you can make money doing it. For me, just the idea of calling people and asking to show them the product was extremely awkward and I couldn’t do it anymore after a few weeks, and you’re right about how weird the managers get with enthusiasm but I knew a lot of people who it wasn’t awkward for and made a lot of money. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone, but it’s definitely not a scam or a “cult”.
