Although the graphics aren’t read by the search engines, they have good effect on the visitors mind. Maybe some advanced search engines can handle them, but it is not true for all of the search engines and all of their features. So what is the solution? Here are some points that can be useful . . .
- First remove any important keyword or link from images, or add it in the text form, too. Then, as mentioned before, use alternative texts for the images and use the relative names for them. You’re your site images with Juicystudio Image Checker. By this tool you analyze your website images and find how to improve HTML codes of your site images. For example:
|<img alt=”cream wafers factory” src=”Factory.jpg”/>|
- Frames are also confusing for search engines. Because they see multiple pages has one URL. If you want to use them, add <noframes> tag. In this tag you can write some alternative texts and use HTML tags to describe the frame (and also be read by the search engines); it would be shown alternatively. Example:
<a href=”http://htmlfreetutorial.com”>HTML tutorial</a>
- Animations and movies: As mentioned before, flash objects are not SEO friendly and search engines may have problem with them. However, you may be interested in using their features. The solution is using swf alternative; this can be done by a free script made by Google named “swfobject”. Find it with its documentations at http://code.google.com/p/swfobject and then add a complete description of your flash object with HTML tags as an alternative of it.
