  • Does the alt text describing images match your organization’s SEO keyword strategy?
  • Are there too many keywords stuffed into alt text for your images?
  • Does your alt text identify any destination or URL linked to the image?

Accessibility & SEO FAQs

Making your website more accessible to users with disabilities can improve SEO for each page, boosting its ranking on various search engines thanks to newly placed elements in your code that give Google and other site crawlers more context.
The short answer is yes. For example, while Google closely guards the algorithms its search engine uses to determine positioning on Search Engine Result Pages (SERPs), they have explicitly admitted that digital accessibility affects these algorithms, because site crawlers favor accessible sites. Additionally, technical SEO experts have observed, tested, and learned how to leverage accessibility tactics so that they resonate more with these algorithms, effectively helping those websites become more prominent and earning them more traffic.
