How To Add Alt Text To Your Images
Search engines read code, but they can’t yet read your images. They say, “A picture says a 1000 words” but when it comes to Alt text, a sentence is all we need.
Alt text serves a few purposes as follows:
- If your image cannot display for any reason, the text will display and describe the content of the image to the user.
- Users relying on speech to text software to visit your site will be better able to understand your content if you have an Alt text description of the image.
- Search engines will be able to interpret your image using the Alt text.
The Alt attribute is integrated into the HTML source code. See the following example:
[<img src=”imagelocation.jpg” alt=”this is the description of my image”>]
You can check whether your images have alt text using an online tool such as this one – https://seositecheckup.com/tools/image-alt-test
