Adding alt Tag to Images to Increase Blog Traffic


In my previous tutorial on 10 Basic SEO Tips for Newbie Bloggers, I have mentioned there about adding alt tag to images in order to receive  a huge amount of traffic to your blog and I had  promised there to make a separate tutorial on how to add alt tag to images.

Reason Behind in Putting Tag in to your Images


The main reason why we need to put alt tag to the images being uploaded in our blog is to tell robots that the image she encountered is part of the  content and not a garbage one. Robots like human beings read our content, look for every detail and when they come across  to our image HTML code they do not recognize what the image is all about if it has no  tag. She can't judge if  that particular image  is all about  CSS or  Basic SEO Tips.  Now in order to let robots index each of our images  we must add an alt Tag on it.This type of Tag  is  special  because it let spiders to describe, categorize and even index as I have said above. In short, this type of Tag tells the robot about the reason of putting that kind of  image in that particular content or page.

Adding alt Tag to Images to Increase Blog Traffic


Note: This is via HTML Mode in Your Blogger Post Editor page
Step 1. Choose a Post or Create New Post
Step 2.  Add Image as you normally do
Step 3. After you have uploaded an image  to your post, switch you Blogger Post Editor page in HTML mode. You will see HTML code like the below:
<a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-17cPWrJiEvI/UhrrZvz-G1I/AAAAAAAABpE/OslpFGjJGaE/s1600/lights.jpg" imageanchor="1" ><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-17cPWrJiEvI/UhrrZvz-G1I/AAAAAAAABpE/OslpFGjJGaE/s320/lights.jpg" /></a>
The code above may look like odd and yet  robot can't identify it since it has no Tag. Now In order to optimize the above image HTML code, we will add alt Tag on it after the red bold text. See the illustration below:
<a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-17cPWrJiEvI/UhrrZvz-G1I/AAAAAAAABpE/OslpFGjJGaE/s1600/lights.jpg" imageanchor="1" ><img alt="add hover effects on images" border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-17cPWrJiEvI/UhrrZvz-G1I/AAAAAAAABpE/OslpFGjJGaE/s320/lights.jpg" /></a>

Step 3. After you have done your post you may now publish  or update  it.
