    > For some reason accessibility is still considered an advanced skill.

    Yes, unfortunately. I would agree if "accessibility" = "making a website fully WCAG-compliant". But finding and fixing the most common issues shouldn't be a big issue. Just run Chrome's Lighthouse Audit or use the hosted version at https://web.dev/ . Tools light Lighthouse will detect common issues, explain their importance and offer a way to fix them.

    Web.dev (aka Lighthouse) and WAVE are the services I will be using to analyze the accessibility, SEO, and performance of http://eccpsu.weebly.com/.

    So what's this then, I hear you ask? Well, it's a composition of the work that I've done for some of my clients. Mainly SEO-realated things. I'll post real life examples of SEO implementations and other webdev related stuff here and hopefully I'll get some response on my work.

    Go to web.dev or use lighthouse to test your core web vitals on your site. Google won't push your content if your vitals are low, ESPECIALLY with the new algo coming out next month.

    agree w/ the above but also think you could use some more meta tags for better seo, run your website in https://web.dev or lighthouse and try to get those scores higher? i found those always help me!

    I see more and more sites looking for alternative solutions to Wordpress such as Weblflow and SquareSpace, but I see that this type of CMS does not offer the necessary resources to meet the criteria of lighthouse / PSI and web.dev.
  • A safer default for navigation: HTTPS
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-03-23
    All of .dev is covered by HSTS pre-loading. So even if you explicitly type http://web.dev/ you are going to actually navigate to https://web.dev/ because that's how HSTS is defined. If you want a site that isn't encrypted in browsers then an entire TLD which is specifically secured is the wrong place to build that site.
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-03-23
    I think I explained myself badly. Im entering sites INTO https://web.dev that we make at work. Web.dev is basically Google Lighthouse and tests your website for basic performance, seo, best practices and A11Y.

    So for example I enter mycustomer.com and it tells me "avoid http redirects" because I didn't enter the https:// before.

    Hsts is included in one of our packages which also includes CSP settings and other security stuff, but barely anyone buys that.

    You're welcome! Definitely recommend checking out PaperMod. I didn't try the regular paper theme, but I can say that PaperMod passes the Google Lighthouse (SEO) checks with very high ratings if you do all the essentials correctly. If you're not familiar with Lighthouse go to https://web.dev and have a read there. 🙂
