Google and Accessibility

Tag: Accessibility,SEO (Search Engine Optimization)John Britsios @ 03:18

When you begin the development of your site, be sure to keep accessibility in mind. Google has a favorite when it comes to accessibility: make it simple and direct and you will rank well.

Any title that you have on your page should be short and sweet, staying focused to the job at hand. If you have a main point make sure to include it in the page’s title.

Make the body of the pages clear to allow for streamlined usability, quick accessibility and good optimization so that your site can come out on the top of the heap in a Google search.

Your URL should be just as descriptive as the title. Keep in mind when designing: what is your customer searching for that would lead you to your page?

Don’t put together extra long pages full of “stuff”. Make sure the purpose of each page is concise. No one will sift through copy to get to the main point. Instead of one long page, expand your site to include more pages.

Links are important to keep the traffic moving from one page to another and images can complement the page, making it more pleasing to the eye. The path your idea should follow will lead you from point to point with the links, so make sure they are not broken.

Just remember the old adage that less is more and Google and your users will have terrific accessibility to your site!
