    Thank YOU – I learned a few things! Did some little tweeks
    and will do some up-dates on the Alt text for my photos.. I had
    already given them good names – so is alt text make it even better?

    • admin says:

      Yes, your alt text adds extra keywords to the image description. It tells Google what the image is and how it related to the surrounding text. The alt text is also helpful if you use rich pins on Pinterest because this is what Pinterest uses to pull in the blog post description to your pins.
