Screaming Frog uses the alt text of an image when i create a sitemap of a crawled site and places it in the image sitemap as .

Is this correct? Or should the actual image title be used as in the image sitemap ?

Thank you

  • did you tried to add title attribute in your image ? Crôôôa ! – Froggiz Oct 30 '15 at 10:13
  • i don't want to. My images only have alt , not titles. I presume if i were to add titel atributs to my images screaming from would use them. But, in this case is it ok if the sitemap has the mage:title with the actual alt text instead? – ClawDuda Oct 30 '15 at 11:40
  • it is too specific to this software, you can ask them directly – Froggiz Oct 30 '15 at 12:06

you can use alt in image sitemap, but only as <image:caption>, as mentioned in Google's documentation
