Keywords in 'IMG alt' tags
From Ethan at bostondine.com on 10 August '98
We are now in the process of adding some real content to the homepage
of our main site thanks to all of your recent advice. But the page
will still remain graphic intensive (nothing I can do.) So I suggested
that we add some more descriptive alt's to the image tags. Someone
wrote some copy for the tags, which ended up being strings of keywords
that are unique to each image or button.

At first I thought this was a little overboard, worried that this might
be considered a spam technique that would hurt us. But the word lists
are about 25 words long each, and are unique and relevant. Are there
any guidelines relating to alt tags and SE's that I should know about?

thanks in advance
