Web Tip: Add names, titles and alt text to all of your photos.

Want your web pages to get found? Get more love from Google with these three tips.

  1. Give each photo file a distinctive Name. It makes it searchable. “Chocolate chip cookie.png” beats “image 1.png” every time.
  2. Give your photo a Title. This tag generates the text that appears when you hover over an image.
  3. Add Alt Text, and make it descriptive. This is what appears if the image does not display for some reason. Alt text is also what is read by a screen reader to web surfers with impaired vision. (“Yummy chocolate chip cookie”)

Following these tips will make your site more attractive to search engines and will make your site clear and easy to navigate.
