    That's a fun service! My blog just scored a 66, but I got a “College Graduate” rating for readability (which is actually a bad thing, according to SEO). My main domain, however, scored a little lower, but got an “Advanced Degree PhD” rating for readability! Yay, I just got smarter!

    I tried it again to see what some of my comments were and my site had dropped to a 68/100 but a new feature I didn't see last time – 77/100 compared to other personal sites/blogs.
    I got something like “some college required” as a readability score yesterday but “Grade 12” today. (Must be that dumb “You're from a small town” list I posted!)
    So anyhow, yeah, a fun exercise for seeing how your site might appeal in the SEO world but stil not an absolute authority by any stretch.
    For example, I'm guessing the readability rating for your site reflects very closely on the type of users you're trying to reach. And although they say “lower readability is better”, there's the flip side that higher reading levels = higher incomes and more disposable income – again, if you are looking at this from the SEO perspective – so that's not necessarily a bad thing.
