View Full Version : Simple SEO question

08-24-2008, 03:59 AM
I'm curious, for image alt and title tags, does Google penalize you if you have the same description for both? Or, does a site get better weight if you use different descriptions for your alt and title tags for an image? I know it's likely a simple question, but I really don't know and would like any details on this as possible from the SEO experts out there.

Thanks in advance

b2b - Id say to use different ALT tags when using them on images. Otherwise it will appear as spam of keywords. I use the same trend but switch them up. Ive had #4 Google for submitted galleries so SEO works just dont spam the keywords.

Don't duplicate the alt tags with the title tags or the other way round. It would penalize you more than helping you SEO wise as far as I have read about it.
