    Does the caption in a photo help with SEO and keywords?

    My best guess is yes! Again, I think it all depends on how the caption is worded.

    I read somewhere that it does help. Since then, I do try to include a caption.

    Absolutely.  You can get significant traffic from image search, if you properly caption your photos.  A photo of a cake you made captioned "Look how beautifully it turned out!" will not do you any good, but if you caption that same photo "My red velvet cake with cream cheese icing" you'll come up in relevant image searches.

    Maddie is absolutely correct; captions are one way images are indexed by search engines. And if the image on your hub is found and clicked on from a search then your hub is also found since the website of the picture is also made available.

    This is great for the search optimisation for photos.

    More and more people have started to using Google photos so adding caption and alt text are quite good.

    I believe the answer is Yes.  Anyway it is easy to include a caption so why not do it?  I think that the caption should also include the primary keyword in the accompanying article if possible.

    That makes sense!  I'm going to start doing this for now on.
