Title: IMG tags question
Post by: james_ashby on 06-11-2010, 10:01:34
Hey guys,

I've seen IMG tags take the alt attribute and the title attribute and according to W3C the alt attribute is the only one that's needed so why do people use the title attribute too ? Is it for extra onsite SEO stuff or should it not be there ?

The title attribute is tooltip when you mouse over image.
And alt attribute is description of image when someone cannot see it (f.e loading page without images).

If any browser does not load your website image and not support,  than your alt tag display your img content at this time .

Alt attributes are useful from SEO point of view while title attribute are tool tips for users' experience...and the description in alt attribute should not be more than 100-120 characters otherwise it will be consider as spamming.

I think that these Attribute can help in SEO ranking. If you do it reasonably short and descriptive. Not over do it.

It just now occurred to me that the image tag introduced in these lessons is different in that it includes a closing tag whereas the img tag did not. This answer on StackOverflow suggests that use of image tags is incorrect and img is correct

Title attribute is the title of your image when you hover your mouse over image; on the other hand alt attribute of image tag is the description of the image and if for some reason images can not be displayed then alt tag text is displayed on the browser.

Alt tags are more important as that is what Google looks at, however some do claim that be having relevant Title Tags as well you can gain some SEO value from them.

Image title doesn't make any affect to SEO but alt does. You can use title tags for user experience/user navigation but that should be limited. You should avoid using title tags everywhere un-necessarily unless where you feel if you don't put a image tool-tip/image title then user might got confused, place only in there. And regards to W3C validation, sometimes we do need to ignore few of their warnings.
