I wish WordPress saved Title Attributes info once the field is filled in. So I brought this up in the WordPress forum for “Fixing WordPress.”

I was roundly criticized for filling in the field. I was told WordPress had dropped the field back at Version 3.5. I was told I was using BAD SEO practices to fill in the field.

I was stunned.

I’m totally unclear on how Alternative Text and Title Attribute work, except I googled both yesterday. I’ve also seen that when I hoover my cursor over an image the Title Attribute shows in a narrow banner. I can’t see that the Alternative Text shows at all.

On Twitter a Computer whiz guy told me that the main point of filling in these fields is for Site Readers so that the images can be translated into a voice description for people who are blind. That sounds good…. so to speak.

I think the WordPress forum may be wrong in that apparently Chrome has been updated to work with Title Attributes. (I hardly have any visitors using other browsers)

What can you tell me about Title Attributes and how they’ve helped your sites… if indeed they have…

No, the Title Attribute is not just the title of the image.

Thank you for the link to Google, Steve. The video is excellent. It breaks down some of the aspects of images that contribute to how Google responds to image searches. I learned a lot from the video. 

I do wish that WordPress retained the information that’s typed into Title Attribute, and I’ll go back to the WordPress Forum and link to the video you provided.

Thank you 🙂
