Back in early June I posted about why you should fill in the ALT TEXT field of all your blog photos. If ALT TEXT is left blank, search engines will skip right over you. Alternatively, if ALT TEXT is filled in, you become part of the Google [and other search engines] search results! Woohoo!
Another field I’ve recently become enamored with is TITLE. TITLE is auto-populated based on the name of my photo. The best thing about TITLE is that it allows you to search your photo library by keyword. However, my photos are all named with numbers and letters. For example, the ones for this blog would be 186a, 186b, etc. because it’s my 186th blog post. But that doesn’t help me to search by keyword! So, after spending weeks filling in all the ALT TEXT field on all my photos, I’m going back through and adding TITLE now. A lot of work, but it will be so worth it in the end!
