WC3 website compliance and optimization
Don’t be blindsided by new W3C website guidelines. Get the facts and avoid possible penalties now.
What is W3C Website Compliance?
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is a global organization led by Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the Web. Its mission is to help the Web reach its full potential.
W3C compliance means that the HTML and other elements on a website meet standards designed to make it accessible to all users, “whatever their hardware, software, language, culture, location, or physical or mental ability,” according to the W3C.
Why Should You Care About W3C Website Compliance?
W3C compliance is voluntary now and not a requirement to rank higher in Google … yet.
But think back a few years.
On April 21, 2015, Google started penalizing websites that weren’t mobile friendly. As a result, many businesses lost priceless search engine rankings because their web pages were not accessible to all users.
Now fast forward to today. Just like being mobile-friendly, W3C standards are designed to make web pages accessible to all. And support for W3C compliance has been steadily building since 2000.
The writing is on the wall. We predict that compliance with W3C will be a requirement for all websites sooner than later.
That means the time to get W3C compliant is now, before you lose search engine traffic.
Can W3C Compliance Help You Rank Higher In Search?
W3C-compliant websites are easily crawled by search engines and easily accessible to people with all browsers. It’s a win-win.
W3C compliance improves usability because web visitors are less likely to run into errors. That means websites are displayed faster and flow better than websites that don’t meet W3C guidelines.
Errors in web page code can negatively affect how your site ranks in search. If Google and other search engines find invalid HTML or XHTML – code that doesn’t follow the rules – your website could be penalized or removed from their indexes altogether.
Bottom line: Just as it’s a best practice to develop web pages to be mobile friendly, you should also develop web pages to be W3C compliant.
