Bolster User Experience with Improved ALT Images!
Did You Know Skipping ALT Text to Your Images Hurts Your SEO Badly?
ALT text is important. If you are adding images without adding ALT text, then get ready to see a HUGE drop in SERPs because this is what something matters in good SEO.
Alt image which is also called alt attribute, alt description, alt text, or sometimes alt tag, is mainly a snippet of in-depth information that describes what the image shows.
The practice of setting alt text was originally developed to help people who are visually impaired so they can understand what the specific image portrays when the reader has to pass on information to someone. It helps improve the browsing experience as well.
Items We Include While Designing Your Company Profile
When you upload some image to your website, it’s recommended to make it a habit to set the alt tag carefully. By adding alt tags to your image, you are ensuring that your website is properly optimized and the image is also conveying the right information about the product. In case you don’t set alt tags, your images and the entire webpage do not get crawled or indexed by Google. An image with correct Alt tags contributes to how the webpage will be indexed and ranked on search results.
Alt tags are important for four vital reasons:
How to Set up Good ALT Tags?
Provide Good Context
First of all, you need to make sure that the image you upload is perfectly relevant to the topic of your webpage. Your images will only be displayed when they are adding the original value and improving the user experience.
At White Links, our team always discourages the pages where the images and text are not properly tagged or chosen. So, it’s better to choose the right image that aligns with the text, and then give it the relevant name for proper indexing.
Shorter Alt Text
Another good practice is, to keep the text shorter so it can deliver more value to the users. Short alt texts are more likely to be crawled and indexed by Google. It’s also recommended to enter the topic name or the main keyword when using alt text for the image.
Do not stuff it with unlimited keywords as Google always disfavors such antics and it won’t show up in Google images as the image is not attributed well based on the Google-approved guidelines.
Construct Logical URLs
If you want search engines to index your page in a short time, then it’s recommended to create logical URLs for the images which properly reflect your webpage as well. Google always considers the URL path and the file name to understand the context and theme of the image. Our experts organize your image content so that we can construct all the URLs logically and effectively. With a logical URL, your image will have a better chance to rank in Google images.
