    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.

      After reading some related discussions, I have figured out the img tag, I noticed some of the comments who have a generic profile picture are most of of my img tags that have no alt attribute.
      Still not sure about the meta language information.

      On HP, whatever you write for an image caption is automatically used for the Alt tag.  (It shouldn't be that way, but HP doesn't want to change it.)

        Thanks very much for that link WF - having been offsite for nearly 2 years I missed that thread and I'm one who Always has multiple images (lots usually) which used to provide me a lot of G Img traffic. That's now all gone yet I've many of MY images are linking back to HP's hub subject library obviously for everyone else's benefit.
        I find the content of that thread and this one also quite disturbing as many images that I have loaded on this site have been very unique. I totally agree with your posts and will certainly seek at least a similar answer as you. Also thank you for your query ro-jo-yo without it I probably would have missed the previous thread on this very important issue.
        Once again Cheers
        PD

          As much as Paul E. says he wants to please Google, he fails to address even some of the simple SEO.  Bad or no Alt tags is a violation of Google Webmaster Guidelines and Hubs are penalized on search engine results pages for not using them and/or not using them appropriately.

            Writer Fox, I have a question. When I started here, I was woefully ignorant of SEO. Now I'm learning a lot more about good keywords, and other stuff, including alt tags, which you told me about.

            A couple of my hubs are doing well, quite by accident. Would it be a good investment of my time to go through some of the low performers and fix headlines, text titles, alt tags, etc? Or is my time better spent doing something else? What do you think?

              If something is wrong with your Titles and/or Alt tags, certainly fix them.  Be careful about using too many H2 tags on a single Hub: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/130692? … ost2735826

                Thanks for replying.
                Is a capsule subtitle a H2 tag ?

                    Writer Fox, thank you so much for this information. I'm working on one of my own domains right now, and I'm very careful about keyword use, and other things, such as alt tags. I had put too many H2 headers in. Fortunately, this reminder came at just the right time.
