Website Image Filenames & Alt Tags

website seo image filenames and alt tags

How do you name your website images?

A: My camera names them for me
B: I've never thought about it
C: Who cares

I've been looking at a client's website that requires a makeover. Their ex-web designer has vanished. Yes, it was a friend of Bob who retired from IT ten years ago.

Can you guess what this website is about?

How do you think Google interpret these images to assist with its page ranking?

If you are a web designer employing filenames like this, then you are being lazy or have no clue about the basics of SEO.

If you are doing your own website and not caring about your filenames then it really is a case of you don't know what you don't know.
