Are you looking to automatically set the image Alternative text and title attribute for all images in the content of your posts and pages?
If you’ve got a lot of images in your content, then this article will help you set these important tags.
The Image SEO feature is available to customers with a Plus plan or above for All in One SEO Pro.
To get started, click on Search Appearance in the All in One SEO menu and then click on the Image SEO tab.
Scroll down to the Image SEO section. Click on the Activate Image SEO button to activate this feature.
You should now see the Image SEO settings.
The first setting you’ll see is Title Attribute Format. The title attribute appears when you mouse over an image. This helps your visitors understand what your image is about, and therefore it helps search engines too.
To set the title attribute format that will be used to automatically generate titles for images in the content of your posts, pages, and other content, click on one of our smart tags shown above the Title Attribute Format field.
You can also type the hash character ( # ) in the field to display a list of available tags you can choose from.
You can also enter text in the Title Attribute Format field or combine text with the smart tags.
The next setting is the Strip Punctuation for Title Attributes toggle. Enable this if you want any punctuation characters to be removed from your image title attributes.
Next, you’ll see the Alt Tag Attribute Format setting. The Alternate text is used by screen readers and to tell visually impaired visitors what the image is about. The Alternate text should therefore describe the image. This can also be helpful to search engines.
Just as you did with the Title Attribute Format field, to set the Alternate text format that will be used to automatically generate Alt text for images in the content of your posts, pages, and other content, click on one of our smart tags shown above the field or type the hash character ( # ) in the field to display a list of available tags you can choose from.
Finally, the last setting is the Strip Punctuation for Alt Attributes toggle. This works just like the Strip Punctuation for Title Attributes toggle.
That’s all! Now All in One SEO will set the image titles and Alt text for images in your content.
