SEO Tips

One of the most important areas of good SEO is making sure that images on your website have proper “Alt” tags. These tags allow search engines better understand the relevancy of the images on your page. By providing a short description will help you move up in search engine positions.

What is Alt Text?

Alt text is meant to be an alternative information source for those people who have chosen to disable images in their browsers and those user agents that are simply unable to “see” the images. It should describe what the image is about and get those visitors interested to see it.

Alt attributes are only part of the accessibility picture, but they can both help and hurt. Write short, descriptive alt attributes for images that assist consumers in understanding what the page is about and how to complete their desired actions. In doing so, you’ll also be optimizing for SEO without having to worry about stuffing too much content or too many keywords into each one.
