Let me start off with a brief history of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA). The ADA was signed into law by President George H. W. Bush back in 1990.

It also banned employment discrimination against the disabled. Fast forward to now, and as the saying goes, no good deed goes unpunished.

Enter the algorithms updates, in other words, when the search engines change how they are ranking sites based on various criteria.

Let’s take a look at some of the new designs and features we’re seeing on websites in 2017, as well as what may be here to stay and what is just a fad.
