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

Provides an alternative text description of a video, enhancing accessibility and giving context to the video content shared on social platforms.

Code Examples

<meta property="og:video:alt" content="A scenic drone footage over the Alps showing the breathtaking views of the mountains." />
This alternative text provides a detailed and descriptive overview of the video content, enhancing accessibility and context.
<meta property="og:video:alt" content="An instructional video on how to bake a chocolate cake, step by step." />
This description offers clear context about the educational content of the video, useful for search optimization and for users unable to watch.
<meta property="og:video:alt" content="Video" />
Using a non-descriptive word like "Video" fails to provide any context or accessibility enhancement.
<meta property="og:video:alt" content="" />
Leaving the og:video:alt property empty misses an opportunity to improve both accessibility and content understanding for social platform users.
