Meaning: Link text should be the subject of where you will go when you click the link

External Link-

Link text that when clicked on brings the site visitor to a different website

  4. Press OK when complete

Why are heading styles so important?

  • SEO and ADA 
  • Considering the structure that is shown below, This page is not ADA compliant

1.3.1 requires that the headings be marked such that they can be programmatically identified

Heading 1- Already exists as the Page Title of this page- Do not use

Heading 2- Already exists as the Subtitle of this page - Do not use

Heading 3- For pages with a Subtitle- Heading 3 is the proper Heading style to begin using in your Content Area for a page that does not use a Subtitle

Heading 4- Sometimes your Heading Styles are defaulted to be different colors or sizes. Do not choose a Heading style based off of color preference

 

Why are Number Lists and Bullet Lists important?"

No one reads paragraphs on websites- we skim for context and then make decisions
