What Is Alt Tag

Why does Alt Tag (alt-ahtml) have no meaning if you cannot learn what it is? Well, I had to search for it online, and I only found its meaning after hours of searching. I came up with a definition from some text related websites. In Wikipedia, it said that Alt Tag is an alternate text for HTML with HTML tags substituted by the URL address.

The Alt Tag is not just useless but it can cause a lot of problems to your website if you don’t know how to make use of it. Let’s begin to look at how to use the Alt Tag properly. Before anything else, you need to know where you are going to place the Alt Tag on your page. The purpose of using Alt Tag is to get the visitor’s attention, to give them the information they want. The only difference between the Alt Tag and the HTML Meta Tag is that it is used to change the text before the html code that is seen on the web page. However, it will be changed to fit the change you made. When people visit your website, they will see a link with your website’s name, the alt text, the name of the website, and the URL.

The Alt Tag should be placed in the middle of the page. If you can place it anywhere, it will not work well because the user will see the title instead of the content. Make sure the Alt Tag doesn’t overlap or goes after the name of the website. Take note that it should be placed at the top of the page. So, when people see it, they will start reading it, and it will give them the required information. One thing to keep in mind that the Alt Tag must always be in the title. It should be able to attract the visitor’s attention, without it getting too overwhelming.
