Advice on tagging photos for search engines
« on: December 31, 2019, 01:14:35 pm »


My coppermine gallery is related to a ship called the QE2.  This means that every image relates to QE2.  For someone using the gallery, they know its all about QE2, so don't necessarily add that constantly to the description and keywords.

Is there a way that I can tag all the photos with QE2 in the background - whether or not the uploader has done this?

My forum is quite well indexed on the search engines, but the images in the gallery aren't.

Thanks for any suggestions.

- Rob

I think the most effective thing you could do is to modify your theme so that images are displayed with the alt and title attributes set.
Code: [Select]
<img src="propeller.jpg" alt="QE2 : propeller image" title="QE2 : propeller image" />
