How to remove image alt tag


#1

Recently I realized that many of my posts with list.ly embeds dropped in SERP. I analyzed these posts, and I found that the keyword density is too high because the list.ly images contain the original title of the list.ly list. I’d like to know how can I remove or modify the alt tags of the images.

Thank you.

Why do you think that might be the cause of the issue? We’d be happy to change this if you can share your analysis.

I tested the pages with the keyword density checker tool here: http://tools.seobook.com/general/keyword-density/

And I got these results for my post fitbodybuzz.com/medicine-ball-workouts-exercises/. As you see the medicine ball, medicine ball workouts keyword density is high.

The high keyword density is the result of that the title of the original listly.ly list that was added to each of the list items image_alt. And if you have a lot of list items that increases the keyword density to high. Even if they are just alt-tags I believe they still count for SEO.

Check the other image here (I can only post one image because I’m new to this forum): http://imageshack.com/a/img924/858/PKd813.png

So, the best would be if the title of the list.ly list wasn’t there. This way, we can avoid that problem. I love list.ly and as you can see my lists have good views, but more SEO tweaking possibilities would be good.

What do you think?

OK. Thank you. If I have more ideas, I’ll share with you.

We’ve updated the code to build the image alt tag with just the name of the item and not the list title. Hope this helps. We are also monitoring the changes to see how it affects SEO
