Day 21 Use alt attributes to optimize images

Search engines aren’t able to fully interpret the content of images without textual support. That’s why using alt text to describe your images is so important: it allows search engines to understand the image content. And, if for some reason an image can’t be loaded, the alt attribute (alternative description) displays the specified alternative text.

Alt text also allows visually impaired users who use text-to-speech software to access web content. You have to optimize for all audience members, after all!

The alt attribute is integrated within the image link in the HTML source code:

<img src=”myimage.jpg” alt=“a beautiful image with an Alt attribute”>

Tips for using alt attributes:

• Go through your website and check if you added all alt attributes to images already live.

• Add an alt attribute for every image on your website.

• Use important keywords for the alt texts.

• Use the alt text to describe what the corresponding images illustrate.
