Optimizing Your Images "alt"
Did you know that any images on your page
can help your listings too? Each image on your page can include
a keyword phrase or two that relates to the image. This text will
also show up & help those that may have their images turned
off when visiting your site. This does not work for all engines,
but it certainly does not hurt so we recommend you give it a try
where you can.
What it looks like:
<IMG SRC="SubmitItLogo.gif" width="10" height="10"
alt="Submit It! Web Site Submission Service">
Where it belongs:
You can add the "alt" attribute
to any image on your page.
We do not recommend using more than a brief
sentence or two to describe an image.
Be sure to use the keyword
phrases that you also used in the copy of your page, title tag,
meta description, and other tags.
Do not try to cram a bunch
of keywords into the "alt" attribute. We recommend
using no more than 2-3 per image.
Describe the image - do
not just list keywords.
The "alt" attribute
is also a good place for misspellings and plural keyword phrases
that you may not have used elsewhere.
