Auto HTML Image Title Attribute (Image Title tag) optimization for WordPress (+Gutenberg) & Google Images

Description

BIGTA (Bulk Image title attribute) plugin automatically adds title attributes (title tags) to your images (into HTML code) from page/article titles and/or site name, separately or combined (depending on your needs).

A quick overview:

BIGTA also allows, via a Post META Box, manual customization on your pages, with the use of custom title attributes other than those defined on setting page.

BIGTA plugin works in automatic mode. Once installed, it will be active on all pages of your site, retroactively and for future content. You no longer have to think about your image title attribute.

We strongly recommend to combine BIGTA with BIALTY pluginAuto image alt text (Alt tag, Alt attribute) optimizer – for better results on search engines

Compatible with: TinyMCE, Page Builder by SiteOrigin, Elementor Page Builder, Gutenberg and more…

About Gutenberg : Unfortunately, with the last release of Gutenberg (WordPress 5.0), there's no Advanced Options section anymore (allowing to add manually title attributes). So, as things stand right now, there won't be a default option to add a title attribute to your images unless you choose the 'Edit as HTML' feature and manually add the title attribute inside the \<img\> tag. Which, by the way, is exactly what BIGTA plugin does by « bulk » adding image title attributes into HTML code. No need to edit your theme anymore…

PRO FEATURES

BIGTA PRO plugin allows you to manage Woocommerce products (page) with same options (separately or combined):

  • Product title as Image title attribute
  • Site name as Image title attribute

ABOUT IMAGE TITLE ATTRIBUTE

What the difference between image alt text vs image title in WordPress ?

Title text or Title attribute (often incorrectly used as "Title tag") is the text of images which a user sees after hovering over the image.

ALT text or ALT attribute (sometimes incorrectly used as "ALT tag") is the important text of the image, that is understandable by Google and other search engines. It is read to blind people or showed to people who have blocked images.

The image title attribute, compared to Alt attribute, serves your users. For example, if they see an image or a photo on your website that needs further explanation, they can easily hover over it, and they will see the description right away.

For UX purpose, the title text is usually more descriptive than the ALT text, and it describes mostly what is unclear at first glance. Users, unlike search engines, can understand the image.

Difference between the Media Library Title and Image Title Attribute in WordPress

When you simply add an image in WordPress via Media Library, you have the option to add a title to it, among other details. Now, this title is used by WordPress internally, as a media title for attachment pages, galleries, and other features that might use it.

Just as you have a title for your post or page, you can have one for media files, because every media file has its own attachment page in WordPress, which is visible to the public unless you disable it. if you switch from the Visual editor to the Text one, you'll see that there's no title attribute added to the image in the HTML \<img\> tag. That's because WordPress didn't design it to work that way.

Meaning that adding a title on MEDIA LIBRARY won't add a « title tag » inside your HTMl code (compared to what BIGTA plugin does instantly).

Why and How You Should Use Alt Text and Image Title

We always recommend to use both alt text and image title with your images. One obvious advantage is that it helps search engines discover your images and display them in image search results. The other advantage is that these tags improve the accessibility of your site and explain your images to people with special needs.
