Open Graph Meta Tags


Learn how to use the og:image:alt meta tag to improve your site.

Provides alternative text for the image specified by og:image, ensuring it is accessible and descriptive of the image content for scenarios where the image cannot be displayed.

Code Examples

<meta property="og:image:alt" content="Team collaborating on a web development project" />
Describes the content of the image in a way that provides context and relevance to the page or article.
<meta property="og:image:alt" content="Graph showing SEO rankings improvement" />
Gives a clear, concise description of what the image illustrates, enriching the content’s message and accessibility.
<meta property="og:image:alt" content="image1.jpg" />
Using the file name as alt text does not describe the image content or context, decreasing accessibility and user experience.
<meta property="og:image:alt" content="" />
Leaving the alt attribute empty on an important image misses an opportunity to enhance accessibility and SEO.


  • Descriptive and Concise
    Ensure the alt text briefly describes the image in a way that relates to the content or context of the page, aiding in user understanding and SEO.
  • Avoid Redundancy
    Do not start the alt text with "image of" or "graphic of"; it is already implied. Focus on what the image conveys about the content.
