Add up the total points and scroll below to see how compatible your site is.

Score of 12 or less - Oh dear. There is virtually no chance of finding your site at the top of the search results, because you haven't made your site technically compatible with search engines at ALL. To give your relationship with search engines a chance, you need to make some changes, FAST!

Score of 13-20
- Lack of attention to your search engine relationship has cost you traffic and your rankings are poor or nonexistent. You have one or two of the elements in place to make your site search engine compatible, but you really need ALL of them to improve your rankings and increase the number of visitors to your site.With 81% of Internet consumers relying on search engines to find web sites, it is vitally important that you keep the search engines interested in your site by ensuring it is compatible with their algorithms and indexed by their robots.

Score of 21-29
- You are aware of the importance of search engines and have tried to make your site at least partly compatible. You have probably achieved a few listings for your site on the major engines, but could be doing a lot better with a little extra effort. Spend a few days tweaking your site content to make it as attractive to engines as possible. Stop resubmitting your sites to engines as it won't help. Conduct a little keyword research to ensure you are targeting the right keywords and phrases, integrate these into your pages and wait for search engines to re-index the site. Consider hiring a SEO specialist to boost your rankings and get more traffic. The engines won't pay attention to you if more compatible sites come along so do it NOW before the honeymoon is over.

Score of 30-36 - Congratulations! You have taken many or all of the steps required to achieve a high ranking on the search engines and are reaping the rewards in resulting site traffic. You keep your site content search engine friendly, target the right keywords and you aren't accidentally spamming the engines with resubmission's or rank queries. Your efforts to make your site search engine compatible are sure to keep them infatuated with your site for a long time. Keep up the good work!
