Search engine search spiders look for keywords in your content
Yep, understood, I just recently went thru ALL posts to manually insert alt attributes, correctly I hope. Didn't make sentences but just used a few words that I thought would get some attention. Saw someplace that the title of a post can be used for the alt keywords. I've done that sometimes, but it depends on the post and the title I dubbed it with.
Whooh, looks like I got some more work to do. I have a lot of tags that do not necessarily echo the content. I'm sure such words as "gardening" or "outdoors" or "pets" are OK....even though come to think of it, my kitty pictures don't have the word pets in them; the alts have something like "my cat Missy" or etc. Even my numerous garden scenes don't often show the actual word "garden" either.
At one time, I simply dispensed with implementing Tags, I was relying on Categories only. (I wasn't even clear on how to use alt=). If tags are really mucked up, would it be OK to stop using Tags at least till I get things better sorted? Might take a while. Or will I lose the coveted visitors and seo rankings that way...? Using Tags is still a bit new to me.
Thanks for the YouTube link, Pan...
