6. Adding Images to Your Site > Adding alternative text and a title to images

Adding alternative text and a title to images

In Muse, you can add information such as alternative text and a title to your images. Alternative text is useful for several reasons, including for SEO purposes (depending on the search engine), for accessibility (to be read aloud by screen readers), and to show when an image link is broken. Alternative text is intended to state the purpose of the image, but in addition to a sentence that describes the picture’s function you can include some relevant targeted keywords. Likewise, a title is a way to provide additional information about the image to search engines and visitors. Keep titles relevant, short, and descriptive. The image title actually appears as a tooltip in some browsers when a visitor hovers the cursor over the image.
