RE: Finding WCAG approved sites

Thanks for everyone's suggestions on finding "reverse linking" to the WCAG
compliance logo. Nothing suggested seems to find them all (I know of some
specific sites that weren't included in the hits list). The only thing I
have found to work is to search for
link:http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG1AAA-Conformance in Google. Any ideas for
other search engines?

I agree that many sites that claim to be compliant really are not. I was
hoping to be able to point designers to some well-designed sites that *are*
compliant...although I realize this is a moving target. Maybe there is such
a list already? I would welcome other ideas on how to show designers some
well-designed, accessible sites (easy to find the inaccessible sites).
Thanks,
Mary

What about using Google Image search or the same at alltheweb.com? Likely,
most users have not renamed the graphic or created another graphic with the
same name.

I question the usefulness of this search if you are looking for sites that
are compliant - there are sites of clients and developers who claim
compliance but for various reaons, may not be.
