Quick Fix For SEO Woes

At the end of 2010, Demosphere offered a Free Website Review for any interested organizations. The reviews focused on various aspects of each website such as layout, content balance, monetization, search engine optimization (SEO) and more. Over 40 organizations signed up for this review and, for the most part, they’re doing a terrific job of managing their sites on a daily basis.

Each of these organizations were given some actionable steps to improve their site in one or more areas. From these reviews, there has been one consistant area where everyone can improve – setting ALT tags for images.

As you can see from the image below, it’s just a matter of adding some quick text before posting an image.

The key question, though, is how to get users in the habit of doing this when uploading images. Should Demosphere highlight this section in the system so users are less likely to forget? We’re open to ideas!
