Not many people believe SEO services and website accessibility go hand-in-hand and in a way they’re right as accessibility has to do with ensuring your website can be accessed by all users and SEO services entail making your website rank in the search engines but what do they both have in common? User experience.

According to Google, their mission is to make the world’s information accessible to everyone:

Information access is at the core of Google’s mission – to make the world’s information universally accessible and useful. That’s why in addition to crawling, indexing and ranking billions of websites, images, videos and other content, we also work to make that content available in all languages and in accessible formats.

With that said, it can easily be surmised that SEO services and accessibility go hand-in-hand.

What is Website Accessibility?

According to Webnauts, the owner of SEOWorkers.com, website accessibility means creating a website which can be accessed by:

  • Users with older browsers or those which lack newer plugins (such as Flash and Java)
  • Those using text-only browsers such as Lynx and w3m
  • Visually impaired users who surf the web with text-to-speech web browsers
  • People who have limited access to the web; including users with older 28.8K and 14.4K modems
  • Users who are deaf or hard of hearing
  • Dyslexic users
  • Users with learning disabilities
  • People with impaired motor abilities, including paraplegic and quadriplegic users

What is the connection with SEO services and website accessibility?

Well the connection is clear. If Google’s mission is to”organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful” then we might safely assume that accessibility is a part of Google’s ranking algorithm – after all that is their goal.
