Warmest Greetings,

Search Engine Optimization's Cousin, Accessbility  

:: Tuesday, November 08, 2005 ::

I won't waste your time. Rather, I want to point you to a great article published in A List Apart, written by Andy Hagans. It's called High Accessibility Is Effective Search Engine Optimization

It's not a "I've heard this all before" piece. Andy offers tidbits of helpful information that can be used quickly, or is at least understandable because he's writing in easy to understand terms. He clarifys what several accessibility requirements are and how they also satisfy SEO requirements at the same time.

Andy shows how making a web site accessible also helps to meet Google's suggested requirements for meeting Google standards for acceptance and crawlability.

Another Recommended Resource

If Andy's article isn't educational for you, this one by Matt Bailey may be. He discusses anchor text, which is a hot SEO topic. It's also key to good accessibility design. He covers the topic in How To: Anchor Text (Donít Click Here!)

The article describes how important selecting descriptive anchor text is for accessibility, usability and search engine optimization.

I'm enjoying finding these informative articles because they tie together the logical and practical reasons for why we do certain things in web design. Even better is when a technique solves several problems at once.
