I have a blog post. Can I use the same alt tag for all images on same page?

Would this be a good practice of image SEO?

  • The purpose of alt tags is so that if the image is missing or a person is using a screen reader, there will be some meaningful content. So, whether or not it affects SEO, it is bad practice generally.

Using the same alt tags for all images is not a good practice, you need to be careful of, is over optimising with ALT tags. This can lead to issues, alt attribute should be used to describe the image. So if you have an image of scissors you should use the alt tag that best describes it, which might be alt="Hair cutting scissors.".


Using same alt tag for all images in same page is a useless idea. It just waist your time. Only use alt tag when you want to keep a record in search engines crawling result or for screen readers etc. alt = alternative , like an image can talk visually for your user aka human, alt can talk with search engines for seo.
