Alt text and Google…..
“Google is a fan of websites that contain images, but don’t forget to add the alt text (the description text) to the image. Google can only read the alt text and not the image file. By having an alt text it also means that Google is able to show your product images in its image search.”
- I just noticed the above on a well known internet website…. Google can only read the alt text and not the image file ….. Personally I would say this is totally wrong. Google Bot can surely identify a photo without a manual look? I bet it’s in the algorithm ….. Comments below!
