++Which SEO recommendations also make a website more usable to people?++
Here's how they replied:
rustybrick: Pretty URLs and nice headlines.
NicholaStott: Alt attributes.
SebastianX: Larger fonts that humans can actually read and that crawlers don't interpret as hidden text. Structured content, well formatted, and clearly separated from boilerplate elements.
neximuss: Every SEO issue is a usability issue too. Title and meta description tags are teasers in search engine results pages (SERPs). So it begins with SEO.
mercylivi: Clean URLs and easy navigation.
Oldwelshguy: Readable content and links from within that content to related pages.
davidmalmborg: Clear, distinct navigation.
aknecht: Ones with good accessibility.
canopenerheart: Testimonials and glossaries!
SEOMalc: Logical information architecture.
SEONickLeRoy: Product reviews. Honest, first-hand reviews for visitors and unique, niche-related content for search!
Jill's Response: Good stuff, guys! Now we just have to get all those website developers out there to believe us!
