For a long time, Image Alt tags were just those words that showed up when an image did not load on a page. With faster internet and better servers, why does that matter now?
Image Alt tags are used for more than just slow images – notably by search engines and screen-readers. Search engines use those tags to determine where your site shows up on their search results. Screen-readers, often used by people that are vision-impaired, use the Image Alt tag to describe what is happening in a picture.
If you don’t have your Image Alts filled in, you could be losing out on SEO.
Or even sued for not being ADA-compliant.
And, unless you’ve been writing perfectly descriptive Image Alt tags since the day you started your site, you probably have a few (or a few thousand) images that don’t have any Alt tag at all right now.

“When I realized how many of the older photos on my website did not have alt tags, I reached out to Kris immediately…
I knew that The Blog Fixer would be able to figure out a solution for the alt tag issues, and sure enough, his solution turned out better than I imagined it would.”
“We needed a tool to add alt text to all of our older images and wanted a solution where we wouldn’t have to update them post by post which would be very time consuming and costly. The Blog Fixer’s fix made it so easy. We now have alt text on all of our images and don’t have to worry. Thank you Blog Fixer for creating such an awesome tool!”
After purchase, there is a fix customization form to fill out that will determine which images are processed: only images without an alt value, all images, only images containing a hashtag, etc. Only images actually used on a post will be searched. Images in the media library but not used on the site will be skipped.
No! As with all of our fixes, the changes are permanent. You can uninstall our plugin after the Image Alt tags have been updated and your changes will remain.
Image search is performed against posts, pages, and most options and widgets. Images displayed as part of your theme and by some plugins will not be searched nor present in the results.
Just let us know on your Image Alt form what you would like included.
Yes, if you’d like to revisit existing alt values as well as fill in missing ones, let us know if the fix customization form you’re sent after purchase. We can use a variety of criteria to find old alts you’d like to fix.
