When you visit the Johns Creek Convention & Visitors Bureau website – watch out! They do NOT have an SSL certificate, which is deemed unsafe and insecure. Depending on your browser, you may get the message below.
Not in ADA Compliance
Johns Creek CVB website lacks alt text, has links that contain no text, and has hidden content to screen reader users. As a local government agency, operating for the public benefit, ADA Compliance (Americans with Disabilities Act Standards for Accessible Design) is not only expected but required. The purpose is to provide information accessible for people with visual and auditory disabilities. Fines for first-time offenders can range from $55,000-$75,000.
More Errors on the JC CVB website
Also if you search for their website – this is the metadata that appears. Do you own the website? It appears they did not set up google maps API, correctly and Google will not provide their API services for free.
On their Dining page – they feature at least 3 restaurants that are long gone from Johns Creek. Outback Steakhouse, S&W Seafood, and Smashburger.
Also, Mojito’s Cafe has a dead link.
The lack of professionalism comes as no surprise, as the JC CVB has had a long history of ethical issues, drama, and questionable expenses. They paid HGTV star Chip Wade ~$30K for 2 min youtube video. They also paid $62K to paint the tunnel.
For an organization that is representing the City of Johns Creek to create “tourism” – why should tourists bother to visit, if a simple visit to their website is not only potentially dangerous but out-of-date with few events?
