Support » Plugin: Rank Math - SEO Plugin for WordPress » Image alt text not detected

    RankMath reports: Add an image with your Focus Keyword as alt text.
    I have added the Focus Keyword to several images on the page. I did it in the Media Library. The reported error does not change.
    I have tried reloading the page and the page in the editor. That does clear some other failures to see changes, but does not seem to work on this particular issue.
    The site is built with Brizy.

    As I was writing this, I went to the home page in edit page mode to copy the RankMath text shown in the first line above. It was showing as an error. I selected the text and right-clicked on it to copy. It changed to non-error / compliant. Very strange! Tried it on another page, no luck.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hello @jkengineer

    Thank you for your message.

    It does actually work well with Brizy. There is just one thing that doesn’t work and it is the fact that Rank Math cannot read the alt text of your images added using Brizy. That will make one of the content analysis fail but it does not affect your SEO or rankings. It is only used as an internal metric to give you a to-do list of things you can do to optimize your website.

    Apart from that one teeny-tiny thing, everything else works great. Even for that issue, we have added API access to the content analysis in the Rank Math plugin to make content from page builder plugins readable by Rank Math.

    You would need to contact the developer of the plugin you mentioned by showing the following link:

    Many known companies have already added the compatibility, as it takes a few hours:
    https://rankmath.com/compatibility/divi/
    https://rankmath.com/compatibility/elementor/
    https://rankmath.com/compatibility/themify-builder/
    https://rankmath.com/compatibility/page-builder-framework/
    https://rankmath.com/compatibility/flothemes/

    I hope that helps. Please let us know if there’s anything else you need our assistance with. More than happy to help.

    Thank you.

    P.S. We will be adding the compatibility for the Brizy page builder in the coming weeks and will let you know.

    Frankly, I find this confusing.  I make the changes using the Media Library and I access RankMath through the sidebar in the Gutenberg editor.  The alt text is visible in the page source. 

    Why does the page builder play into this?

    Hello @jkengineer

    That is because few page builders have their own ways to add the content inside the post editor and when they do not use the default WordPress way to add the content/images, the only way to read the content inside those blocks/Shortcodes is via the API we developed. That API sends the content back to Rank Math in a way in which the RM plugin can read that.

    Hope that helps. Thank you.
