With Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) imminent on May 18th, 2017, we thought it would be wise to delve into the convergence and crossover of SEO and website accessibility.
Optimising both means you are effectively influencing a few factors:
- Search engines will deem your website relevant, in-turn get ranked higher on Google.
- Web users will understand your website pages better.
- People with disability can cohesively navigate through your content, which means you are also on the way to addressing Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
Website development is a formidable wedlock between users and search engines.

Information Architecture (IA) is all about organising information, planning a routing system, and implementing content in a structure that’s comprehensible and searchable.
It is great to have lots of information at your disposal but not knowing how to arrange them to fall into place can be detrimental. With the use of information architecture, you can organise your website’s contents in such a way that an interface is created to support each category that is formed and labeled appropriately. This makes findability and web usability at its optimal.

What is semantic search?
The word semantic means ‘relating to meaning in language or logic’.
Semantic search is the clarity of intent when it comes to search engines and delivers the user more meaningful results; it’s more accurate and succinct to the users intention as oppose to robotic search results. You could think of it like conversational search, which provides more targeted and meaningful search results from the most relevant sources. The contextualisation of keywords is known as semantic search. Semantic search checks for context and intended meaning behind these keywords.
You should use relevant keywords and phrases in a more natural manner on your website and not just calculated keywords that merely seem to be relevant to a search query. Your content must be relevant to your brand, business, services and most importantly to what the user is searching for. Your content must also be shareable as social search has become a key player for SEO and semantic search, particularly when it comes to Google profile.
1. SEO Keywords Research
Write down 5 to 10 top keywords with long tail keywords that you think users will search for to find your business online and order the 3 to 5 main relevant keywords for each page. Use these popular keywords on your website content, blogs and when sharing on social media. So get social, particularly set up Google My Business (Google+) – this will give you that extra bit of traction on Google’s local search.
2. Page Title Tags
Relevant page titles are important for SEO. These page titles are displayed on Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs) and act as small preview ads, which encourages visitors to click through to your website rather than someone else’s. Ensure it contains your most important keywords/phrases first and are unique per page. This will also display when your content is shared on social media. Ideally, between 30 to 55 characters should be made use of to meet Bing (Yahoo!), Google and W3C guidelines.
