    Alt text for slide show images?

    Ticket by debrastanley | May 24, 2012 | Question
    • Hi, on my front / home page I have a three image slide show. The Wix SEO monitoring tool said it found three images on my site, even though many other pages have images. The tool recommended I should put my keywords in the alt text for the images.

      1.  Are only the images on the home page relevant to search engines?
      2.  How do I change the alt text for the slide show images? I have done this for every other image on my site, but when I pull up "organize images" in the slide show I only get title and description, no alt text blank. (I'm using the HTML5 editor). I don't want to add title or description because I don't want those to display when the mouse goes over the images, and anyway, those aren't the same as alt text, are they? Suggestions?

      Thank you in advance.

      You can add a title and description to your images in a gallery. This will function as your Alt Text. Make sure you add both a relevant title and description to all of your images in your gallery.

      Please provide us with a detailed outline of the steps you have taken until this point, so we may replicate the process from our end in finding a solution.

      -Where do you see it on your site, i.e. what page?
      -What component in the editor is causing the problem (i.e. text box)?

      *Please include screen shots, if possible.

      Hi victoriavalentin4,


      I apologize for the inconvenience. Please provide us with more details so that we could investigate this further. On which website does this occur? Where are the galleries located?

      Hi what2eat ,

      You can remove the description from your images.

      Please click on the gallery -> manage -> delete description.

      You can also change the skin of your gallery.

      Please click on the gallery- > change style - > edit style -> change the gallery to a different skin where the image description doesn't show.


      Thank you,
