Q2 2020 AIM Listed INDEX Results

Index Accessibility Private sector


At Sitemorse we published our 2020 Q2 AIM INDEX this week. The INDEX has been published quarterly since 2015 and ranks the websites of nearly 800 companies based on User Experience, Search Engine Optimisation and Governance, Risk and Compliance.

Our Q2 2020 INDEX was compiled following over 276 million tests checks and measures across over 850,000 URLs.

 Congratulations go to Sunrise Resources for retaining first place for the fifth successive quarter. Also, congratulations are due to Braveheart Investment Group for being the most improved, rising an impressive 541 places.

If we focus purely on Accessibility, Colefax Group should be congratulated for taking the lead in this sector. Summarising accessibility scores we see that:

  • Only 2% of companies scored 7 or higher.
  • 52% scored 4 or less.
  • 22% actually scored zero

Comparing results with last quarter, 76 companies improved their accessibility score from the last quarter, while 99 scored lower. 16 companies failed all of the WCAG 2.1 Level A and AA tests on every single page.

Making a website accessible comes under the Equalities Act 2000. We’ve already seen that in the US that lawsuits alleging web sites discriminating against people with disabilities are increasingly common and there is no reason that the UK won’t face the similar lawsuits.
