Tagging IMAGES - not page keywords - how is it done?

I see how to add keyword tags to my page via the "page properties" button. But how do I tag individual images with keywords?

Am I wrong that image tags are separate from page keywords? I can't find anything anywhere on how to do it, even though the SEO tips and tutorials all mention how important it is. Is this right in front of my nose and I'm just not seeing it?

Hi dawn,

You can only tag images that were uploaded using the picture widget or the text widget by following the steps in this tutorial. If you are unable to follow these steps, I suspect it's because you are trying to add tags to images you added using the gallery widget.

Hello Dawn,

The alt attribute is probably what you are referring to: If you are adding images by straight HTML only then the syntax in Yola where your images are stored in the root level of the File manager, is:

<img src="resources/image-name.jpg" alt="{description phrase}"> This is the basic code and will display the image at the size of the stored image

<img src="resources/image-name.jpg" alt="{description phrase}" width="{number of pixels}" height="{number of pixels}"> This allows you to modify the displayed size of the image on your page.

The keywords heading listed in your Yola page properties is accurately known as meta-keywords and they do nothing these days. They are completely ignored by Google, Yahoo and Bing so there's no point in using them for SEO. This has been dropped for over a decade.

Thanks for both tips! Good to know I need not waste my time with meta-keywords.

Time to drop some gallery images in favor of actual pictures, I guess.
