    Agreed! This was so helpful! I especially appreciate that tech-jargon wasn’t used. As someone who isn’t tech/website building savvy at all, I’ve read countless sources that tried to explain what you’ve just explained, and I always felt lost! Thanks so much for keeping it simple, clear, but also actionable!

    Great article, but be cautious with the use of alt text – merely packing alt text with keywords can actually hurt you if it isn’t relevant to the picture directly. Alt text should explain the picture in a way that will work for a screen reader (their original purpose). Only include the keywords if they fit the description.
