It's important to provide text descriptions for your visual content to improve your site search-ability and accessibility. Exhibit provides several ways to add searchable content for your photos, video, and collections.
1. Go to Settings and select SEO
2. Complete your Site Title and Description
Visitors will see your site title at the top of the browser window, whereas the title and description are used in the search results pages of search engines like Google.
Your Site Title and Description also display when someone shares your site URL on social media.
3. Go to a Collection and select Details
4. Complete the Collection SEO abstract
This is a description of your Collection and is only visible in the search results pages of search engines like Google.
5. Complete Alt Text for each image
