    Why is the Attribute thing there, if we aren’t supposed to use it????

    Assuming this field is being generated by a plugin; the developers of the plugin were incorrect on their knowledge of search engine optimisation. It is bad to stuff keywords into title attributes, captions and alternative text in order to satisfy search engines. Instead captions and alternative text should be considered with the user in-mind.

    If an image conveys real information then that information needs to be available in the alternative text. If not, adding information in alternative text, captions and even title attributes will make your website difficult to use for everyone. This is particularly an issue for people using assistive technologies. Google understands this.


    It’s the SEO that I thought WordPress favored. All-in-One-SEO.

    These plugins are not endorsed by WordPress, they just have a lot of good ratings from users.
