Access Keys For Web Usability

By Ben Nadel on

I just added two access keys to the site:

ALT + s : Site Search
ALT + 1 : Home Page

I was just reading about access keys and web usability over here and these are the access keys that they recommend:

Alt + 1 : Home page
Alt + 3 : Site map
Alt + 4 : Search
Alt + 5 : Common Questions
Alt + 6 : Help
Alt + 9 : Feedback form

Of these, I only have the home page and the search. Furthermore, my search is NOT (4). ALT + s seems more natural to me; they both start with "s." But, seeing as I lack several of those, it makes me think that my site is lacking stuff. I mean, I know it is, after all, I am still building it. But, now, makes me think I need a site map at the very least.
