Hello All - I just joined the community and would love to hear some thoughts around a topic I've been wrangling.
How important is web accessibility in terms of SEO?
We have an open debate between two departments internally and I'm trying to find some conclusive data on how accessibility plays a role in SEO considerations. I know that it isn't a high %, but knowing the risk is important to making the right decision for the business. Note: We serve education, medical and government clients but they are not our primary market.
Full Disclosure: I'm of the opinion that one should always put the user first when it comes to design and I find myself asking the question, "why not?"
Looking forward to any resources that support one way or another, as well as personal experiences.
