Kandio's assessment tests let you assess the candidates, employees, agencies or freelancers you have concerning any SEO tasks that you might have.
Remember that Kandio offers guidelines on which programmers to proceed with, and which ones to discard. Kandio will give you reliable directions about things programmers should know about, but a programmer can be excellent, even if he does not know about all of these things.
We suggest that you use our tests before your interview process to know which ones actually to talk to. The final Kandio report should be a piece of conversation with the strong candidates, rather than a disqualifying process in a late stage interview process.
You can divide search engine optimization into two main categories:
This test considers only On-page SEO.
Off-page SEO considers too many subjective opinions and strategies for an actual assessment test, and many strategies don't offer transparent rules to obtain the actual search engine ranking.
We might include certain Off-page topics at a later point, if we find that employable candidates should know about certain Off-page strategies, thus it becoming industry standard.
A person being good in one strategy, or a certain part of Off-page SEO, doesn't mean that he necessarily would benefit your rankings in the long run, as strategies (if misused) can be very damaging to the site's ranking as well.
On the contrary, On-page SEO offers a very transparent and specific set of rules which are clearly documented by all search engines including Google.
If your candidate knows his way around these rules, it would be very likely that he also knows about off-page SEO as well, since one can't function without the other.
This test has several use-cases.
