Make your site more accessible (which will improve your SEO) on May 9th

OK, so you aren’t doing any meetups for Global Accessibility Awareness Day. That’s OK. There’s something you can still do very easily. It will make your site more accessible to those who need screen readers, and in a karmic twist, will also allow Google and other search engines to understand your site better. Anything that helps a screen reader, will help Google’s bots understand your content.

Open up your website. Unplug your mouse. Now surf your website with a keyboard alone. This will give you an idea of what it’s like to surf your website with an assistive device.
