40 to 60 – Your site falls into the realm of the majority, which means there are a couple of things it needs to improve on. Identify these weaknesses and work on them today.
Below 40 – If you scored this low, you already pretty much know what went wrong based on the quiz itself. You’re driving away your visitors with stuff that’s not really helping your site. Gather your team, plan an overhaul, and compare the difference.
