The Importance of alt text images

Last Update: December 01, 2015

Hello everyone

My word what a tedious evening WA has been for me tonight. Neively I had neglected alt texting any images. It was not until I read a training blog here on WA from another member that I realised its importance to help with site ranking.

Huuuhhh....so my evening consisted of going through all 47 blogs I've published to date to add keyword related artical specific alt text to each and every image. Boy this has been exhausting, I wish I had paid more attention in training as this minor overlook my end has meant a non motivating evening for me.

However.....I'm done and now I'm over the moon and will make sure I keep on top of it and so should you all !

Kind regards

Hi Kirby
Learning by your mistakes eh.......sometimes that's the very best way to learn as you'll never make the same mistake again.
A hint to the rest of us as well, make sure we get it right first time to make sure we don't have to go through what you've had to.
After all that effort, I really hope you get a jump in your hits and that it's been worthwhile.
Good luck

Thank you so much for this post. You have reminded me that I need to do the same thing. You have also just reminded me of the subtlies of our business. Kyle and Carson have put so many details in all our lessons but the first time through you just can't remember them all. I keep reminding myself that all my efforts will get better and easier with time.
