Matt Cutts and Alternative Text

Last Update: October 21, 2017

Hiya Folks,

I've been dinking around with the issue of 'Keywords in Alt Text' lately and found this video by Matt Cutts on Alt Tags. I don't know about you but it gave me quite a bit more perspective on what Google wants out of the Alt Texts in each of your images.

Reckon I'm gonna be up a little late tonight working on a few of my images... (-;

Very simple and to the point. I will have to go back and make some changes to my images also. I have always added alt tags to my images but I always thought it was just for the vision impaired.

I did not realize that Google used it also.

Thanks

You bet Frank... just spent a couple of hours going through mine. I'm kinda wondering about the URLs now too! I think Jovo did some stuff on it and I'm going to try and find his training on it.

Hopin' your weekend is good!
