What Is Alt Text for Images?

Image Alt Text Banner

Image alt text is a critical component of on-page optimization for search engines. When search engines crawl your website, they rely on alt text to understand the content of your images, which can improve your rankings in search results.

To write effective alt text for SEO purposes, it’s important to be descriptive and specific. Use keywords that accurately describe the image, and make sure that the alt text is relevant to the surrounding content. Avoid using generic phrases like “image” or “photo,” as these won’t provide any value to search engines or users.
It’s also important to keep your alt text concise. While you want to be specific and descriptive, you don’t want to write a novel. Aim for a short, clear description that summarizes the image in a way that will help search engines understand its content.

In addition to its SEO benefits, image alt text is also an important accessibility feature that makes websites more usable for people with disabilities. For individuals who use screen readers, alt text provides a way to understand the content of an image that they may not be able to see. When a screen reader encounters an image with alt text, it will read the alt text aloud, allowing the user to understand the content of the image without actually seeing it.

Finally, it’s worth noting that alt text is not the only factor that search engines use to understand the content of your images. Other important factors include the file name of the image, the context of the image on the page, and the size and resolution of the image. By paying attention to all of these factors, you can create a more SEO-friendly website that is more likely to rank well in search results.
