CHAPTER FOUR

Alt and Title Tags

Alt and Title Tags

 

Next we are going to move onto your page images and how to make them SEO friendly so that your not just wasting there ability to help rank your website for its major keywords.

 

Most images that are used in HTML pages will look something like this:

 

<img src="http://24hourlocksmithsmanchester.co.uk/image/quality.png" width="1600" height="1600"/>

 

Now to a search engine this is an image and it renders that image so that you can see it inside the browser, but it hasn’t got a clue what that image is so it has no ranking value at all for your website.

 

To ensure all images on your website are seen correctly by search engines and they also help your overall page to rank they should include and alt tag and a title tag not the same title tag as in chapter 1. These tags should be included in the image as follows:

 

<img src="http://24hourlocksmithsmanchester.co.uk/image/quality.png" width="1600" height="1600" alt=“” title=“”/>

 

And then your major keywords should be put inside them as follows:

 

<img src="http://24hourlocksmithsmanchester.co.uk/image/quality.png" width="1600" height="1600" alt=“Locksmiths in Manchester” title=“Manchester Locksmiths”/>

 

Don’t use the same alt and title tags in the image and try not to duplicate alt and title tags in multiple images on the same page.

 

Alt and Title tags should be used in every single image on every single page of your website.
