Blog Readability Test: Genius??

Ever wonder what level of education is required to understand my blog?

So I decided to try out the blog readability test to determine once and for all the answer to this question. Here's the verdict:


cash advance


All I can say is this: "Huh? Really ah? Can I trust the test?" So, what do the readers say?

wow, the reading level of your blog is really good. I do not know your blog can read. How about the reading level of your blog's visitors?

alex,

this is just purely for fun. the website determines your blog's level due to the blog's contents. if you pad up your blog with lots of hebrew and greek, of course, it will read 'genius'!

sansblogue got only an 'elementary level' (not that it is only for that level but because he avoided all the technical stuff):

Hi Alex,

Anthony is right - this is just for fun. I also suspect that the test is done randomly. If I were to run the test again - I might get elementary level.

Hi Anthony,

You are right - it's just for fun. We don't even know what categories or criteria that are used to evaluate the blog readability.

My blog's readability level - genius? Nah....

i think the criteria is certain weightage given to bombastic words - atonement, philosphy, kant, verbosity, those "logy" and "ism" words, and perhaps unidentified foreign words - gk/hebrew?

but ultimately, it may be because americans are just stupid....hehehehe...

I've got high school -- (same like alex tang!! hehehehe)which is cool, now i can prove to my gf that i don't write difficult stuff...

but then again, the website which she goes to (kennysia.com), that's "elementary school"..faint.

I think americans are just donks. hehehe..

Maybe its because the "test" is not sophisicated enough to differentiate the finer details that separate "genius" from "insane"

LOL!! Just kidding!

Kar Yong said...

Hi Steven
Haha...you sure this is invented by the americans? Haha...

Kar Yong said...

Hi Paul,

You are absolutely RIGHT!! Haha

Kar Yong said...

Sigh... the Blog Readability thingy has been taking more than 5 minutes gauging the readibility of my blog. It would be either one of these 2 possibilities:

1. It is beyond genius that it cannot understand what it written OR

2. It is so absurd that it cannot understand what is written

hmmm ... or maybe both of the above!!
