Website Terminology Glossary

Alt Text

Alt text, or alternative text, is a description of an image that is used to provide context and information about the image for users who are visually impaired or who have images turned off in their web browser. Alt text is also used by search engines to understand the content of images on a webpage.

Alt text is added to an image in the HTML code using the “alt” attribute. It is NOT an HTML tag in itself. The alt text should be a concise and accurate description of the image, and should provide enough information to convey the image’s purpose and content. Alt text should also be written in plain language and avoid using unnecessary technical terms or jargon.

Some examples of alt text for images include:

A photo of a dog

A golden retriever playing catch with a tennis ball in a grassy field.

A chart or graph

A bar graph showing the sales figures for Q1, Q2, Q3, and Q4 of 2021.

A logo

The Coca-Cola logo, featuring a red and white script font on a white background.

An illustration

A hand-drawn sketch of a bicycle with a basket on the front, surrounded by flowers.

Alt text is an important part of web accessibility and helps ensure that all users can access and understand the content of a webpage, regardless of their abilities or technology preferences.

Yoni is great to work with, he got my site up and running and he is extremely knowledgeable with web site design.
I have never worked with a website company that was able to deliver results so quickly. Great customer service and response times on any website issue I've ever needed help with!
Yoni was on point from our very first meeting through the completion of his work on my website. His quick responses and thoroughness were both very much appreciated. I look forward to working with Yoni again the next time an update or addition to my website is needed.
Yoni helped me refine my SEO in numerous ways. He was pleasant to work with, thorough, and promptly available by phone and email to answer my questions. Furthermore, he was patient and professional when it came to the back and forth of getting things looking exactly as I wanted on my website. He did things for me on my website that others I had worked with were unable to do. His knowledge of web development and SEO is a powerful combination. Other people I had worked with in the past did one or the other, but he does both!
