Keyword Phrases in Gallery Web Pages and Alt Text
How do I place keyword phrases in my gallery web pages?
At QuickontheNet.com, when it comes to Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), it
is possible to load your gallery web pages with
keywords and more importantly, keyword
For example, when it comes to your website, you can consider creating the
following types of galleries:
- Photo gallery
- Product gallery
- Product catalogue listing
- FAQs (frequently asked questions)
- Glossary (plain English descriptions of technical terms)
Once again, this section is broken into 3 main elements:
- Gallery 'Page titles'
- Gallery 'Main text'
- Gallery 'Alt text'
1. Gallery 'Page titles'

The principle of loading your page titles with keyword phrases is exactly the
same as 'Web
pages', however there is one important difference. The page
title or the 'title tag' is only picked up for each gallery item when
you click-through on the thumbnail photograph. In other words, each
'click-through' is a web page in its own right and therefore it can have its own
unique keyword phrases in the page title.
The great news is that this means you can have a completely different mix of
keyword phrases for each gallery item. Once again, limit your
page titles to around 6-10 words per web page.
2. Gallery 'Main text'
Once again, we
will try to avoid the repeating information which has already been presented in
At QuickontheNet.com, each gallery item has 'Intro text' and 'Main
text'. The 'Intro text' sits next to the thumbnail photograph or graphic and the
'Main text' sits next to the click-through photograph or graphic.
The important point here is to load your gallery item 'Main text' with
keyword phrases. As mentioned previously, your keyword
density should be approximately 10%, or roughly 10
keywords in the form of keyword phrases for every 100
3. Gallery 'Alt text'
QuickontheNet.com, we provide you with a field for your photo gallery
alt text information, making this aspect of Search Engine
Optimisation (SEO) very user-friendly and simple for you.
If it is appropriate to do so, and you feel it will help users of your
website, you should consider loading your photo gallery alt text
descriptions with keyword phrases.
Search Engine Tip
It is our view that you should consider
using a slightly different mix of keywords (when compared with your
gallery 'Page title' and gallery 'Main text') in your alt text, in order to
avoid over-loading your web page withh too many keywords, because over-loading
can in fact be counter-productive.
