    So, just got an email from vWorker saying they got acquired by Freelancer and I had my account transferred there. This is an old account i used to have when working as a freelancer long time ago. So while looking over it saw the option to take an exam. Looked at the list, searched for SEO. I was really curious how the f**k they can maintain a SEO exam when SEO is so dynamic it changes from month to month and the most commonly known knowledge is either inaccurate or plain wrong. So I took it. Both level 1 and 2.

    Level1: 85%
    Level2: 75% (barely passed)

    You would not believe the questions. They must have wrote them in 2005 or something. You literally can't understand half of them and about 95% of them are useless from a practical perspective. For example "what was the first publicized web crawler?". Who the f**k cares?!

    Reminded me of exams in college lol

    If you search in fiverr.com there is someone who for $5 for the first gig take your exam and then its $10 for the next gigs. Problem is he wants your login details and the credit available for the first gig.
    We shall think about that, he has good feedback and 98% success rate.
    Is it all worth it

    ^^ Did you login from your four year old account just to bump a two year old thread to have more than ten posts?
