Hello. Does anyone have any suggestions about using seo for images and alt. text app and whether the free app called  Avada SEO IMAGE Optimiser  is as efficient as the paying app called BOOSTER APPS. i have a free trial with Booster App ending in 3 days and not sure its worth paying or not as the budget is tight but need something done. Also i sell jewelllery so i always need 3 or 4 pictures on each product. Can i use the same alt. text for all the pictures? Advice please.

Thank you.

Carole

You don't need a dedicated SEO app to add alts to your images. In saying that - I tend to use Excelify (for bulk editing). I don't find much value in the SEO apps on Shopify.

Re the uniquies, yeah that's ideal. But something is better than nothing, just go through them. If you're looking for a naming convention - have a read through the article "Alt Text for SEO" by Ahrefs. 

If you have several similar pics, then just name them the same and add the diff, for example: 
boquet of red roses
boquet of red roses held by woman
boquet of red roses - back
boquet of red roses - top
boquet of red roses - closeup
