Re: Can SEO and Accessibility coexist?

Sounds to me like you need to hire an SEO who's methods have moved on since
1998. The better companies are preaching usability, accessibility and
quality content as a route to better rankings and more conversions. Find one
of those and you should find an SEO who you can relate to.

Yes, compromises need to be made, but it shouldn't be the either/or scenario
you've mentioned.

We've discussed alt attributes and what they're for and how to make them
accessible. And I try to build my sites that way. Enter the SEO
specialist... "Keywords must be used in alt elements and the first three
alts should have the most important keyword at least three times."
