I am currently working on a Joomla website using SPPageBuilder and I decided to use a carousel to display multiple images of a product. However, I cannot add "alt" attributes over a carousel image, I can only add a title, a medium text and a bottom text (a description), which I decided to hide based on the choices below :

  1. If I decide to display the text over the image, it will make the page look not so good but no bot will complain; the page won't be badly considered by bots and it will be considered as an alt text.
  2. If I decide to write some text over the image and hide it, the image will have an alt text, so no bot will reduce the SEO score, but I am affraid that it will badly flag the page.
  3. I don't write anything and the page might not be considered as "fraudulent" but the SEO score will decrease because I don't have any alt text over the carousel.

In that case, what would be the best choice and can my website be impacted if I hide the text over the carousel?

Have a nice day!

    Carousels are bad for user experience, hated by users, and less effective for sales than other techniques. Instead of trying to optimize your carousel SEO, you should not use a carousel. – Stephen Ostermiller Apr 12 at 9:45
