3 Things - Tuesday, August 17

  1. Accessibility and SEO ~ The A11Y Project
    Search engine optimization and accessibility have a lot more in common than you would think. Many of the same practices that we use to enable everyone to enjoy our digital experiences also open the doors for search engines.

  2. How & Why Accessibility Matters for SEO ~ Search Engine Journal
    Ensuring websites are accessible and usable for everyone should be a primary concern for anyone who works within the online space. While accessibility is more often seen as the responsibility of developers and designers, there is a lot of overlap in the SEO work we do to make websites accessible and easy for search engines to understand.

  3. Web Accessibility and SEO - WebAIM (an oldie but a goodie)
    Web accessibility and search engine optimization (SEO) are both about getting relevant content to users. In many ways, search engines are deaf, blind, use only a keyboard, and have limited technical abilities. Both accessibility and SEO rely on content structure, semantics, and functionality to either present content to users or determine the relevance of content.
