This may be the hardest SEO quiz you’ll ever take. First discovered on twitter, like almost everything else, when it was shared by Bill Slawski.
In my nineteen years of working in search marketing, I’ve learned some things. The days of spam are gone. Now, you need to really know current methods of search optimization to get results. I designed this quiz to test how up-to-date your SEO knowledge is. Take it to see how you stack up.
Being an SEO for the past eleven years I imagined “The Hardest SEO Quiz You’ll Ever Take” would be a breeze. Think again. Took the test and… There are some tricky questions in there, wow.
