Search engine optimization tips part #6 (Adding Text to an image)
Adding text to image will greatly improve your chances of being found on the internet. Some search engines rate the web pages they index solely on image text alone.
I am going to show you how to add text to images using Dreamweaver I am not sure how much of a difference there is between Dreamweaver and other website creators but I can’t imagine they are all that different.
This is very simple, in the picture below you can see I have the image I want to ad text to selected. In the “Alt” box found in the properties tool bar you can add your text. I recommend using your keywords here in a small phrases or sentence. Once you have added all the text you want simply upload the index back to your web page.
You can see an example of how your text will look here by scrolling to the bottom of the page and hovering the mouse over the picture.
Another thing I have found is that just about any part of your webpage that is in .jpg or .bmp format can have text added to it.
This is like any other part of SEO, more is not always better. A good way to check this is with an SEO tool like SEO Power Suite or keyword density checker to see if your keywords are being used too much.
To your continued success
