    I am in the process of building a new page for my site, however when going through the Yoast checks for the page it is returning that there are no images on the page? I have only one image which is held in a grid row and then inside a 1/1 cell as the background.

    I have for this image an ALT tag but when I also look at the page code I cannot find it?

    I’m not sure if I am doing something wrong of if it is the theme?

    The page to view was generated from ( page generator so I am wanting to make sure all is correct before I go off and generate a large batch of pages:).

    I have added PC details below if it helps.



    the thing is – that background-images do not have alt tags – or do you see in your source code an image tag?
    i can not believe that a seo tool (i use for bigger sites Yoast Seo – and others for smaller sites ) would find this as fault.
    May i see the concerning site?


    I appreciate the reply Guenni007 but would rather keep the site private.

    The funny thing is… it states this in yoast: ‘Image alt attributes: No images appear on this page. Add some! ‘

    ..but I have just one ?



    Thanks for the update. I’m not sure exactly how Yoast SEO works in this matter, but like Guenni007 pointed out; background images do not have alt tags, so I don’t think you need to worry about it.

    Best regards,


    Yoast does it right if it does not count the backgrounds as images. these are in css not in the DOM as img tags.
    Yoast only looks if all img tags have alt attributes.


    OK.. I appreciate the feedback on this. something to keep in mind.

    Please close thread.
