    Just for fun - The SEO Quiz


    I don't really have that much spare time, but for some reason, whenever I do, I like to make little projects for our community. This one's a cool little number called "the SEO Quiz". It's not official and it's easy to cheat, but it's fun and could lead to some people learning things they've never known before.

    Post here and let me know what you think!

    DOH:



    Thanks for taking the quiz!
    You correctly answered 9 out of 32 questions.

    Your score is: 28%


    Or maybe it was ME that was terrible.
    Can you make it easier next time please?
    Just have questions like:

    What color is the google home page.
    a: Black O
    b: White O

    But really i did learn a lot and it was nice to do.
    Top one randfish.

    I took a stab at it, but I didn't do too well. Mind you I'm not really into the SEW stuff and it is past 2AM over here

    Couple of remarks though, some serious:

    Section 3 Q1. I answered * "****", but the answers tell me that's incorrect and it should be "****" {?????}

    Section 3 Q4. Are you talking about the real Marissa, or Gurtie's version?

    This was quite a bit of fun. Thanks for that randfish

    Looks like I still have a couple of gaps in my SEO memory and/or knowledge... Luckily I have the web to fill 'em - hehe.

    Not now though, I'm gonna catch some

    Wit,

    Acch! Sorry. I've changed that question to be correct. Could your edit your post so the answer is not revealed? I'll also boost your score a point!

    This is a tough one - hope you enjoyed it at least!

    Tried to give you some rep for this, but can't!

    It is terrible, huh? There's someone complaining vehemently to one of my co-workers that I'm "spreading misinformation" about what a DMCA violation is with this test. I looked carefully over the wording and it looks good to me. I'd say that's actually one of the easier questions.

    Heh, that was fun. Didn't do so well though. Got 66% (21 out of 32 correct). Mostly missed the historical/people questions and the highly technical white paper type questions. Guess that's why I'm a blue collar seo. LOL.

    I got a 15, i got most of the historical stuff wrong, but did so-so on the other stuff. That was cool, I would love to see more of that.

    Yep, if you do not know who you are you are penalized a point.

    No! You're not penalized if you enter anonymously. It's way more fun to do it the other way though... Glad everyone's enjoying it - I think it's a fun way to learn more about some of these subjects.

    I am bottom of the class of people who werent anonymous!

    Yeah,, i am the best at being the worst.
    Just to clarify.
    I didnt think it was terrible in the way that you think.
    I meant terrible becuse i scored low

    My post was supposed to read in different way to the way it looked.
    Sorry if it looked like i was being negative about it becuse it wasnt intended that way.
