How I joined the SEO experts group on Elance: my SEO test results

Elance.com

As most of you already know, Elance is one of the best platforms where any freelancer – from SEO consultants to Designers – can look for a suitable job.

Once you sign in and complete your profile, it is highly reccommended to take a few tests to prove your skills – depending on your field of expertise.

Being myself a SEO content writer, I have taken a SEO skill test in order to gain access to the SEO Experts group on Elance. The purpose of being part of a group on Elance is one of the keys to become a successful, reputable and known freelancer, although not everyone can access to the group: as a matter of fact, you must pass the test first.

Meta tags usage, SEO techniques, search engines algorithms and much more were all included in the test ; I admit I’ve found it really hard to give the right answer, since it seems to be a little ambiguous.

SEO techniques and other related topics indeed, are often a controversial and somehow an ever-changing topic, and while some experts agree on certain aspects, some other disagree on those.

I must also confess that, during my test, I have browsed some questions I wasn’t sure of, and I have noticed that many users publish some answers to this test on their blogs!

Well, in my honest opinion, I wouldn’t rely on those if I were you – OKAY, OKAY, I have peeped a little at  those blogs too, and I find most of them totally wrong and misleading.

If you want to get a good knowledge of SEO, I advise you some e-books you may find online, or, if you can afford it, you may want to take some online SEO training classes.

As for my result, I am proud to announce you I am now in the top 10% in Search Engine Optimization on Elance. Yay!

Oh, you thought I’d post my answers? Well, I am sorry if you haven’t found what you’re looking for, but if you need some tips I will definitely help you!

Good luck guyz!
