The Ultimate Relationship Building Link Profile Test

As an above-average SEO, you know links are the most important thing in the world. Except, you also know that relationships are the new backlink, according to some SEO gurus, thus making relationships even more importanter (you goddamned millennials and your slang – Ed).

So if the best links come from the best relationships, then how do you know if the relationship you’re about to enter, or have already entered into, is right for you? Is it possible you’ve actually ended up in a toxic relationship that could ultimately lead to a ranking penalty?

Find out by answering either True or False from our highly scientific, triple-blind, peer-evaluated Relationship Health Profile Test! (Editor’s note: please don’t write on your screen, WTFSEO is not liable for your stupidity damages.)

[Author’s note: the following scoring system is “adopted” from OUR link “partner”, Dr. Phil. (I wish! – Editor)]

Now go back over your test and count all of the even-numbered questions to which you answered True. Write down the total. Now go back and count all of the odd-numbered items to which you answered False. Add that number to your “True total” to get your overall score.

Even numbered “True” responses _______

Odd-numbered “False” responses _______

Overall Total _______

This test was designed to give you a hazy snapshot of the health of your relationship.

If your overall relationship score is above 32, you have achieved Rihanna-Chris Brown Level (allegedly). It’s likely that your relationship is beyond toxic and in extreme danger of failing.

If your total score is between 20 and 32, you have achieved Charlie Sheen-Everyone He’s Ever Dated Level (allegedly). Your relationship is seriously troubled and you may be living an “emotional divorce.”

If your total score is between 12 and 19, you have achieved Ozzy-Sharon Osbourne Level (allegedly). Your relationship is about average and certainly needs work.

If your score is below 11, you have achieved Woody Allen-Soon-Yi Previn Level. Your relationship, strange as it is, is well above the norm, but likely has isolated areas in which you can improve.
