Using Image Alt Text {alternative text} in all of your images.

Its best to use image alt text for every image that you upload. It looks like this in html code image alt=”Topics and descriptive words” and is the best practice for your image alt text policy standards if you want to build performant pages and web applications.

Use Keywords in your Image Names

Just like you want to use image alt text to describe the image, you want to include keywords on topic and descriptive of the images your hosting.

When you name your images be sure you use hyphens – between keywords. You don’t want to use underscores and you dont want to name it onelongfilename.jpg either. The better format in that case would be one-lone-file-name.jpg.

  1. Information about the host platform is always helpful so thanks for posting this.

    On a personal note: I struggle like heck getting to grips with new blogging software, it’s changed so much in the last 10 years or so. I’m fine with posting text and images (finally), but all the other available functions I instinctively shy away from simply because I am totally ignorant of what they are and what they’re supposed to do.

    Yoast? amp? gravatar? jetpack? These things will be useful to someone I’m sure, but in my little blogging corner I am sure I will never find a use for these things I don’t understand – let alone use. I can get my head around the blocks system and how they work, and at the end of the day that’s all I need to understand.

    I’m just so glad that Ben decided to re-invent Thoughts and bring it back online, and being still able to post and comment as normal is a bonus

    Right. . .I shall now go away and consult my online terminology dictionary and try to educate myself a bit more.
