First of all, use better alt attributes. Seriously, "Cross" and "Checkmark" are horrible alt attributes. To see why, try viewing your page in a text-only browser. With your HTML as it is, you'll see something like: Unregistered Basic Premium ------------------------------------------------------------------- ...

It is perfectly valid for the alt attribute to be blank, if the images are purely decorational. Otherwise, if you are outputting the same image over and over then it makes sense that the alt attribute be the same for all of them. There is no negative SEO benefit to that, and your cross/tick images are unlikely to rank in image searches anyway. One ...

There is nothing wrong with having duplicate alt tags as its job is to describe the images for screen readers and users who have images disabled. So if you have the images on the page many times then it is likely you will have duplicate alt tags - it is semantically correct. Saying all that you could however describe your images differently for each one ...

You can remove the image from the td and just add it to the td instead. In your example you don't actually need the image, it has no content value, or SEO value. Because of that, you can do this: <td class="center Crossed" title="Cross"></td> .Cross{ background: url('/images/cross.png') no-repeat center center; height: 15px; } This has ...

Wordpress, by defalt, WILL allow you to do this. Open your wp-config.php file and add the following line: define( 'UPLOADS', '/media/' ); Change /media/ to whatever directory you want to use. A word of caution: If you already have media uploaded, the path to that media is stored in the database. Changing the path will not update the stored paths, and ...

There is no advantage whatsoever. Well, there may be a very small advantage regarding loading time if you page has many images, since you would be saving some KB on text. Although, there would be a slight more work to do on the server/browser side. Each relative link has to be converted to a full canonical link that identifies a resource, so a relative ...

I personally don't think this is very important at all. This seems like more of a architectural issue or problem depending on your site and is very unlikely to effect the SEO of your website. Here is a list of issues that could effect your website with regards to images. Images are downloading the content from multiple different websites thus increasing ...

Wordpress by default will not allow you to do that. If you wish to change the url of uploads folder, you will have to use an additional plugin. This plugin will give you the following option so that you can modify your upload path: Here's another plugin (haven't tested this one personally) that will let you do the same thing.

There is the benefit of ranking for search queries in image search engines by including imagery in your blog posts. This in itself can prove a substantial traffic driver. The general consensus is though, that visuals in web content have a much higher engagement rate and aids the effect of any copy as it's just one way of breaking up the text into easily ...

There is remote and remote... First of all, know that Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and I'm sure, many others do that a lot. There are two things where I would be careful: I would use the same main domain name (i.e. images.my-domain.com) I would make sure that the server(s) are close between each others. Point (2) means that if you get 2 or 3 servers in ...

Not generally. However, if the logo appears large enough to give the wrong impression, then I would not use the photo unless you can create a logo for your site and possibly place it over the other logo making it clear that the two are not the same. You do not have to cover the logo completely, just enough to give the right idea.

Will the browser cache these images? Well, what do you mean by caching in this context? Browsers cache static files so they don't have to request them again. If the image data is provided inline in the HTML page itself, no caching is required. If the image data is supplied in the stylesheet, then since the stylesheet itself will be cached, the image ...
