At GOVTalks Spring 2020, DSGa’s Testing and Support Lead, Jasmyne Epps, gave attendees an in-depth look at Siteimprove’s Accessibility module.

At GOVTalks Spring 2020, DSGa’s Amanda de Zayas, Content Strategist, and Ericca Farrington, Outreach Coordinator, teamed up to talk about Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

They also explained how agencies can use Siteimprove’s SEO tools to help constituents find their websites quickly and easily via search engines, like Google, Yahoo! and Bing.
