Headings, headers are actually unseen messages between client browser and server.

I mean H1, H2, etc. - not meta data in the header element.

 

I'll check out the recommended reading.

 

(and the actual code in an image tag is "alt")



"keywords in first paragraph"
Not even remotely important. That wasn't a "fact" when it was first bandied about 10 - 15 years ago and "positioning content" in the source code became the "experts" mantra.

now you just seem snarky - i would be very surprised to learn that keywords in the first paragraph - or top content of a page - have no relevance to rankings.

Yes, but it's an image tag. The alt is an attribute of the image tag, as are the width, the height, the src. You won't see <alt> anywhere in the source code of a page. If you did, that would be an alt tag, but it wouldn't actually do anything.

 

And yes, a lot of people refer to the alt attribute as an "alt tag," but that doesn't make it right. Chris, as you've noticed, is a bit of a stickler for that sort of thing.

 

And headers, by the way, are the response codes that a server puts out when a file is requested. <h1>, <h2>, etc. are headings, and the head is the section of a page's code that contains its meta data.

Then commence surprise because they don't and never did.
