Accessibility & SEO

Good SEO equates to good accessibility. So many of the elements of SEO are about ease of access within a site: clear headings (especially H1s, H2s) define what sections are about; Breadcrumbs help people navigate; and let’s not forget why we use ALT tags, and why they (and links) are supposed to be descriptive!

Sound & solid SEO is often all about The Little Things. Dull and boring they may be, they are still essential elements of the successful SEO toolkit. ‘Ducks in a row’ I call it.

Some times overlooked, optimising PDFs just adds extra content that Google can find and index. I’ve just identified 200 PDFs on a site that were all showing in Google as a one-word page title.
