Alt text, or alternative text, is a description of an image that appears when the image cannot be displayed.

Alt text is crucial for the accessibility and discoverability of your website.

Alt text ensures that people with visual impairments can understand the content of images. Screen readers read the alt text aloud, allowing blind and visually impaired individuals to benefit from the information on your website.


SEO:

Search engines like Google use alt text to understand what an image is about. Relevant alt text can improve the visibility of your website in search results.


User experience:

Alt text can enhance the user experience by providing additional context about images. This is especially useful when images are unclear or when the context of the image is important.


Tips for writing good alt text:

Descriptive:

he alt text should clearly and concisely describe the image. Avoid unnecessary details or jargon.


Relevant:

Use relevant keywords in the alt text, but don't overdo it. Concrete: Include specific details about the image, such as the location, depicted people or objects, and the action taking place.


Short and impactful:

Alt text should be no more than 125 characters long.


Examples of good alt text:

Headers (H1, H2, H3 etc.)

Headers are important for the structure and readability of your website. They help you organize and categorize content, making it easier for visitors to scan and understand what the page is about.

H2:

H2 tags are used for subheadings on the page. These tags are less important than the H1 tag but still crucial for the page's structure.

H3:

H3 tags are used for subheadings of subheadings. These tags are less important than the H1 and H2 tags but can still be useful for structuring the page.

H4, H5, H6: There are also H4, H5, and H6 tags, but these are less commonly used.


Tips for using headers:

  • Use headers to structure the content of your page.
