A newbie here. In the product section, when you move the mouse over the images, there is the EDIT ALT TEXT option. Do I have to write a simple sentence or write words with draws and commas?

Also, the images that I add have all keywords separated by draws, should I write the same words in the EDIT ALT TEXT section or another description?

Also, if you write the ALT text in this section, does that mean we do not need to write in the HTML code? I hope so, because I do not know how to do it.

Thank you very much

Hi Gigi!

Maggie here, Shopify Guru. 🙂

Good question! The image alt text is meant to be keywords or phrases that describe the image and the page it's on. This is helpful for both search engines, and to make your website more accessible to everyone. For a bit more detail on this, you can check out our SEO help doc here.

Hope this helps! You can contact support 24/7 if you have any more questions!
