Adam Spencer Uses Alternative Methods to Gain SEO and Accessibility

What Is Document Accessibility?

Online content works best when it is accessible to all. Individuals who have low vision or print disabilities can have difficulties with certain forms of inaccessible content. Providing accessible documents that those with print disabilities can easily read and interact with results in more people visiting websites, gaining insight, and interacting with the provider of the content.

Why Is Document Accessibility Good for Online Marketing?

A website should attract as many potential people as possible. For businesses and brand awareness, the quantity of individuals drawn to a site is especially important. By not accounting for accessibility, entire demographics can hinder a business’s future.

Words Matter

Using keywords and ALT-Text to describe an image is not always as easy as it sounds. Poorly written image descriptions can create confusion or have little to no effect for SEO purposes. Furthermore, descriptions that are used too often can also be considered problematic for online marketing.
