What is “Semantic Markup?”
Semantics, by definition, is the analysis of words, or phrase, in a language.
For this case, semantic elements consist of elements that describe a definition and function to both
the browser (whomever is viewing the webpage) and the developer (whomever is making the webpage.) The content
is clearly defined. It is expected that all modern browsers display some sort of semantic markup (keep in mind HTML5.)
What is Search Engine Optimization (SEO?)
This mainly concerns a website’s visibility and accessibility post-search from a search engine.
The more popular a website is, the more upfront in the line of results a user sees it will be. In other words,
a website that is highly popular will appear first. There’s many types of searches one can do, and with regard to this topic:
image, video, shopping, article, and music searching. Keep in mind popular search engines, such as Google or Bing, naturally use this;
if one does not know the concerpt of SEO, one always knows that it happens every time it searches for a desired entity.
Everyone has the right to access legal websites, with regard to design and development. The only boundary is that
the information on the website must be equally accessible, no matter who is accessing the website. Sometimes,
for people with disabilities, the developer must format the HTML for the person in question to see images, videos, or links,
just like how any normal person navigating the site would.
One example of this is providing closed captions or text-to-voice services for your site.
Keep in mind that Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act enforces this for publicly-accessed websites.
