Can anyone advise on what to write on a Pinterest pin alt text description, please?
1. the description of the background only
2. The pin title only
3. both of them
Thanks in advance.

Lisa, that section is for your users who would like to use the feature of (read allowed). You would basically let know your readers what you pin or add is about.

It is reserved for not the description of the post but for some most important points which you would like your readers to know at a glance / listening.

Explain what people can see in the pin. This text will be read aloud by screen readers.

I did not know it too but when I looked closely to it, I found out.

Hope it helps,

Meena

Hi Lisa,
I use the Pinterest Alt Text the same way were are taught to use the image Alt Text in our website posts. It's basically a description of what the pin image is showing.

Use the title of your post for alt text.
For description use the first paragraph of your post.
Insert the url at the bottom.

Hi Lisa,

You can think of the alt text as a description of the image. You want to be descriptive and write complete sentences, because if for some reason the image doesn't render on the page, viewers can still read the alt text instead, as well as screen readers. Don't stuff it with keywords, but instead, give a description of the image.

It also helps with any images that you're pinning from your website, assuring that it has the keywords to be found in the search engines.

I hope this helps!
Isaiah 😊
