Website Optimisation

We've just received a quote to have the Latimer Hinks website updated and optimised. The company i spoke to basically gave the website a pre-MOT and a report.

Apparently the main problem with the site is lack of compliance with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). It also lacks search engine optimisation for the main sections. Navigation is javascript dependant, changing to CSS based navigation will allow security conscious people to use the navigation.

It all seems to be ringing the right bells. We don't have alot of traffic to the site and the above problems may explain the reason why. Judith's Divorce Blog sends far more traffic to the Latimer Hinks site that google or msn etc.

I have now arranged a meeting with Business Link in the hope that we can have some of the cost subsidised by a grant. I will let you know how i get on.

PS: I always thought "javascript" was a character out of Star Wars. I have, however have been informed that the Star Wars character was Jabba the Hut!
