Image alt tags . . .
« on: 01-07-2013, 17:02:02 »
Hello there,

This is my first post on this forum. I don't know very much about SEO and I'm not sure what to expect in terms of replies to my question.

I have built a website for someone who makes hats and would like to sell them.

http://www.hatsbyrita.co.uk

The website has lots of pictures of the hats and I have tried to make sure that all images have content in the alt tags as I understand this is an important part of SEO.

What I'm not sure about is if I might have crossed over the line in to a world of spam by using the same terms too often.

I have done a fairly general Google search to see if I could find any more information on alt tags but I couldn't find anything with a definitive answer.

Would it be appropriate to ask if someone could have a look at the website and give me some advice on what to put in my image alt tags?

Thanks for your help.

You should  put your targeted keywords separated by coma(,) for perticuler page.

For example :

You are targeting 4 keywords for you homepage and homepage have 2 images,in that case you should put 2 keywords in alt tags of img1 and another 2 keywords at img2.(As per Relevant)

Use alternative or different title tags.

as you categorized the hats use them for alt and title text.

Adding alternative text for images in seo and provide alternative or substitute text, primarily for use when the image is not being displayed or description of the image, without considering what job the image was doing on the page, leading to results that can range from the incongruous to the absurd.

another thing to think about is to also use the alt tag for its intended purpose, people who can't see the images but may still want to visit the site.  it's always a balance to weigh SEO versus usability
