About SEO.NeT’s Search Engine Optimization Certification Program
The Certification Program supplied by SEO.NeT is a part of our industry comparison system. The aim is to verify the level of knowledge and skills of listing owners and SEO Professionals. These certifications should be examined together with Customer Reviews and SEO.NeT Ratings. As a matter of fact certificates alone have never been a good measurement of performance in any industry: they can only confirm that the attendees have passed the exam. We still think this information is valuable to customers, so we offer a SEO Certification Program where attendees can advance over the years through different levels of certification.
There is currently NO organization that is recognized as a CERTIFYING BODY of the Search Engine Optimization Industry. Our certificates should be seen and used as a part of SEO.NeT’s comparison engine, and not as an Industry standard.
Aim of the Certification
The aim of SEO Certification is to verify user knowledge of Search Engine Optimization. The quiz includes both theoretical questions and practical tasks where common SEO tools must be utilized and some calculation completed. The SEO Certification Program is developed to support our comparison service of SEO Industry.
