Search Engine Land posted an SEO test that Eric Enge from Stone Temple created. It is 20 questions and it scores your SEO knowledge. Well, Google's Gary Illyes, a man most SEOs look to for SEO advice, took the test and shared on Twitter that he only scored a 75%!

He was labelled an SEO amateur! Here is the certificate generated by the test:

So I decided to take the test, and I only scored an 80% and he reference his answers to the ones I got incorrect in articles I wrote. Heh. Truth is, it is all fun and games.

Gary has a great sense of humor to share his score on Twitter. Ashley, who is the number on sarcastic personality in our industry was quick to reply to Gary:

In any event, you can take the test if you want over at SEL.

Gary, hopefully you will do better next time.
