Woo Image SEO


“Woo Image SEO” will boost your store’s SEO by automatically adding “alt” and “title” attributes to your product’s images.
No configuration is required.
However, you can choose to customize the automatic attributes using the product’s title, category or tag in any order.
This plugin works only with the WooCommerce plugin.


  1. Visit Plugins > Add New
  2. Search for “Woo Image SEO
  3. Download and Activate the plugin.


What are the requirements?

The WooCommerce plugin by Automattic.

What are image “alt” tags or attributes?

Alt text, also known as “alt attributes” or “alt tags, are used in HTML to describe the contents of an image.
Adding alternative text to photos is a principle of web accessibility. Visually impaired users using screen readers will be read an alt attribute to better understand an on-page image.
Alt tags will be displayed in place of an image if an image file cannot be loaded.
Alt tags provide better image context/descriptions to search engine crawlers, helping them to index an image properly.

Why should I care?

Adding appropriate alt attributes will improve your SEO. Better ranking should lead to more traffic!

What will the plugin actually do?

The plugin will use each product’s title (name) to add alt and title attributes to the product’s images.
You have a product called “Amazing Avengers Shirt”.
The plugin’s images will get alt=”Amazing Avengers Shirt” and title=”Amazing Avengers Shirt”.

You can also enable/disable the generation of each attribute and choose whether to allow for user-specified attributes by going to WooCommerce -> Woo Image SEO.
You can also customize the way this plugin creates attributes.
For exmple you may want to include each product’s category in the alt tags, or even it’s tag.

Your actual files or database won’t be modified.
Once you disable the plugin, the automatically generated attributes will be gone.

Will this plugin affect the performance in a bad way?

The plugin will not cause any noticeable slowdown.
It’s designed to help improve your website’s SEO.
The plugin won’t load any additional files.

Any other recommendations?

Only if you are using the Divi Builder and wish to improve your loading speed, performance, PageSpeed Insights score, etc.

This is a great plugin!! It is very easy to install and run and it works smooth, no problems. Time saver plugin! It would be nice if it could be possible to run and permanently change the image attributes to the database. Thank you very much @emandiev, God bless you!!!

Thank you for your plugin. Works like a charm. I would like to see the ability to add alt text or caption data from Product Description. Other SEO plugins say that they add alt text automatically, however they focus on the main product image or the featured image. Your plugin does what it says it does. Well done.

It changes the alt tags to every product image! All the rest of the plugins do it for money but this one is an open source plugin so it does the same job for free! Thank you so much! It saved me so much time!
