Alternative text (the alt attribute) is missing for several images. Add alternative text so that search engines can better understand the content of your images.

Remember that search engine crawlers cannot actually "see" images, so the alternative text attribute allows you to assign a specific description to each image.

Alternative text describes your images so they can appear in Google™ Images search results.

Check the images on your website and make sure ‪‬‬effective alternative text is specified for each image.

Restrict the number of characters in alt text to 150, including spaces, and minimize the size of images to optimize your website's page load times.

Set a name for all your images

Medium impact Hard to solve

6.7%

?

This page's ratio of text to HTML code is below 15 percent, this means that your website probably needs more text content.

A ratio between 25 and 70 percent is ideal. When it goes beyond that, the page might run the risk of being considered spam.

As long as the ‪‬‬content is relevant and gives essential information, it is a plus to have more of it.

Keep in mind that URLs are also an important part of a comprehensive SEO strategy. Use clean URLs to make your site more "crawlable" by Google™.
