Links with Images Missing Alt Tags

All images in anchor tags with a blank alt tag.

Priority: Medium

Impact: Negative

What issues it may cause

The image alt tag provides search engines with an understanding of the images content, which may then help the image to rank in image search for the terms used.

As the image is inside an anchor tag, the image alt text can serve as a substitute where anchor text is empty and provide some additional search phrase specific weight to the target of the link.

How do you fix it

Add a relevant alt tag to every image which is included in a link.

What is the positive impact

The images have a greater opportunity to rank in image search, or help the target page of the link to improve rankings for the terms included in the alt tag, potentially resulting in more traffic and conversions.
