    I've found that using accurate and descriptive alt text on your images is very helpful.
    It's easy to find on Google a lot of the images on my website and they often are right at the top of the results.

    Do you focus on image alt text? What's your method? Some use keywords, I prefer full sentences. Thoughts?

    Alt text is a tenet of accessible web design. Its original (and still primary) purpose is to describe images to visitors who are unable to see them. This includes screen readers and browsers that block images, but it also includes users who are sight-impaired or otherwise unable to visually identify an image.
    The Importance of Alt Text for Image SEO. Google has gotten quite good at determining the value and relevance of content for its users. When you use an optimized alt attribute with a target keyword, it gives your page a boost because the alt text is a helpful relevance signal for search engines.
