To help your SEO optimization, highlights any images in the active tab without an 'alt' tag. Created by United Virtualities.
One of the minor details that differentiates an SEO-friendly vs non-SEO-friendly website is whether each image has an “alt.” This is important because it helps substantially with Google and Google Image search result placements.
But the challenge is that it is easy to overlook alt tags. Are you sure that you’ve got all of them on your website?
United Virtualities is excited to launch a simple solution to this problem, MATIH: the Missing Alt Tags Image Highlighter.
This extension functions precisely as its name suggests: once turned on for a site, it highlights any image without an alt tag.
This allows for not just quick and easy search engine optimization, but really helps you find the edge cases of images in which you missed the alt tags, like those little social media icons at the bottom of your site.
UV has been using this Chrome extension internally to help our own website and SEO, and we’ve released it publicly so that other teams can also benefit from it as well. “Internal tooling, FTW” as we like to say.
If you have any questions or want to know more, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or read about the extension on our extension page, https://weareuv.com/the-first-uv-chrome-extension-is-now-live-matih-the-missing-alt-tag-image-highlighter/
Saving the best for last, while various team members at United Virtualities advised in making this extension, we want to thank in particular Elias Ibarra (lead developer), Agustina Alvarez (design), and JJ Segado and Morgan Friedman (no one is quite sure how they contributed but somehow they did).
While developing this plugin, here is the music we listened to:
Elias: Jose Jose's Gavilan o Paloma
JJ: Ozzy Osbourne's Devil's Daughter (Holy War)
Agustina: Coldplay's A Head Full of Dreams
Morgan: Dalida's J’Attendrai
