This is probably a very basic question but if you could please help me out here.
I know on my website there is a specific spot for the "alt tag" or alternative tag for when the photo cannot be displayed. For HubPages, is the "alt tag" our description or is there another location?
Also, if we have six different photos all leading to the same subject, how would you recommend handing the description tag for the key words?
The pictures are going to help visualize your 'topic'. Whatever your topic is about -let's say, hairbrush, then you can use keywords like self grooming, hair care, hair accessory, etc., etc. as for the alt tag thingy isn't that used for almost the same duty? not a expert here
I know my wordpress sites have a title, alt tag and description.
But here we only have the option of putting in the caption and source. So any keywords you want to insert, need to be placed there.

Checking Bing webmaster, it states that the img tag does not have an ALT attribute defined, also the pages are missing meta language information, how do I correct that.
