Default Regarding Alt Text


I am updating my site. So, my question is which method is a good practice, whether to give alt text to particular keyword or briefly explanation of that keyword i.e., only 1 line.


XYZ Keyword: Alt text that describes XYZ Keyword


XYZ Keyword: A brief explanation of the XYZ keyword in one line.

Which one is good practice.

Thanking U in Advance......

You should enter your keywords in your Alt tags then it will be helpful for your website to get fast benefits in images searching as well.

It is better to place the keyword with a short description in alt tag.

In my point of views, both would give the same result. If want one answer then Alt tag with small description is good.

Only a single keyword is good, even you should write that word in alt which describe your image rather than any other keyword which is irrelevant to your image.

Brief explanation helps in ranking the keywords also informing people what is it exactly.
