Why isn't search engine reading my alt text in SEO?

1 0 0



Members of the Shopify community,

Regarding my website's SEO, I need your assistance urgently. The search engines do not appear to be able to read the alt text I have added to my images despite my best efforts. My website has been thoroughly reviewed and necessary adjustments have been made, but the issue persists. Please advise me on how to implement alt text similar to that used on other successful websites, such as the testspeed  linked here. If so, how can I modify my alt text using JSON if it's hardcoded? Any advice or suggestions you can provide would be invaluable. Thank you for taking the time to help me with this problem.

Hi @villerpeter6 ,


It sounds like you're encountering issues with search engines not reading the alt text for your images. This might be due to how and when the alt text is being added or updated on your site. Ensure your alt text is directly included in the HTML and not added through JavaScript, as search engines might not index it correctly. Additionally, verify that your images are accessible and not blocked by robots.txt.


SEOPro can assist by automating the process of adding relevant and keyword-rich alt text to your images, helping to improve your SEO. The app also provides tools for bulk optimization of alt texts, making it easier to manage large inventories.
