Question by whhhhaaaazzzzuuuuuppppppp: WCAG 2.0 guidelines make better search engine optimisation?
Do the WCAG 2.0 guidelines make your website better optimised for search engines?
Answer by makersonline
It won’t hurt. In particular ‘Provide text alternatives for any non-text content’ will help as this will enable search engines to index non-text based content such as images and Flash which will help with search engine optimisation. Generally, these guidelines are geared towards helping people not search spiders and so largely they are irrelevant – but if the time is taken to ensure that the content is accessible by all people, then it’s very likely that it will be accessible by search engines too.
