One last thing. Ok Cupid (where I just took these tests) are pretty freaking smart. Oodles of people take these quizzes. When the search engines rate a website to decide who goes in the top positions, they look at how many different web pages link to them using that particular phrase. What Ok Cupid is doing is adding little "alt" tags with the phrase "free online dating" to these little quizzes- when you copy and paste them to put them on your LJ, those tags go with the images. Thus, they're getting a tremendous amount of ratings- for free, and with (likely) few even noticing. Pretty smart.
