Search Engine Friendly Images

If you'd like to search engine optimize your images for Google, there's a white hat way to do it without getting penalized. It's called alternative text or ALT Text, a helpful attribute that you can add to your images. All you have to do is add a single keyword or a short keyword phrase to your images to make them more accessible on the Web.

Adding alternative text not only gives you another way to boost your search rankings but also helps people with cognitive disabilities to understand the context of your images. You're probably excited about alternative text and ready to get started but don't know how. Well, we're here to help with that.

Introducing ALT Text, the #1 Easy-to-Use App for Shopify

With ALT Text, you can easily add alternative text to your images and publish them on the Web for your store. If you're still unsure how ALT Text can help you, look at it this way.

Alternative text is nothing more than a description for your image that helps the search engines understand its context. For example, you're selling a gold watch on your store and have uploaded an image to match the product. You and your customers can look at the image and know that it's a watch. However, the search engine has no clue what it is without a description.

ALT Text helps the search engines "see" your images.

Using alternative text provides added value to your readers and the search engines. With alternative text, you have another place to add your company name, a keyword and SEO-friendly text to accompany the image. Keep in mind: Search engines can detect keyword spamming in alternative text and drop your site in the rankings. With ALT Text, you don't have to worry about writing the alternative text yourself. It does most of the work for you.

How ALT Text Works for You

ALT Text dynamically generates alternative text for products with a single click. Stores can string together small snippets of code to create SEO-friendly alternate text for their product imagery. Just assemble the text together. As an example: {Product Name} - {Product Category} - {Store Name}.

Once you assemble the text together, ALT Text generates SEO alternative text for every product on your store. In this case, it may look like: {Awesome Brand Gold Watch} - {Women's Watches} - {MySite.com}.

ALT Text automatically syncs daily to ensure all new products have SEO-friendly alternative text created. Even better, it does it without any additional work on your part. Just string the text together, and watch ALT Text improve traffic from all the search engines.

Very easy to use


No matter how efficient our online marketing was, we would never have achieved the results we wanted if it were not for ALT Text. We are not an IT company, and thus we could not do our own SEO. However, ALT Text made it simple for us, telling us exactly what we needed to add to our site and how to rename photos and other uploads to ensure we scored higher on the SEO charts.
In the few moments we’ve spent with ALT Text, we understood that we were required to improve our social media presence and how to do it, in order to improve our web rankings. After two years, we thought we understood social media and how to use it to our benefit, but ALT Text diagnosed our presence and showed us how to improve it.
Helping with the social media was only a small aspect of the assistance we received, but the best of all, is that our SEO health has significantly increased without costing us a cent.
Valve House Studios will recommend ALT Text to anyone who wishes to improve their SEO without paying heaps of money.
Thank You for your help.
