Hi - I am optimizing my php-nuke home page (raven nuke 2.20) for SEO.

One thing I run into is this (from web ceo optimization report):

1. Your keyword is not present in the first 3 ALT image attributes on your page (or there are no ALT attributes at all)! If you have images on your page, put the keyword in one of these ALTs as they are considered more important than the rest of the ALTs on your page. Even though ALT tags haven't gained much importance with Google, the Yahoo! and Windows Live search engines pay much more attention to them.

From the SEO view report it appears that the 3 alt image attributes that I am using are approx the 36th that the spider sees. ..

here are a few that the spiders see first:

themes/6446/images/left.jpg
themes/6446/images/logo.jpg
themes/6446/images/text.jpg
themes/6446/images/spacer.gif
themes/6446/images/spacer.gif
themes/6446/images/spacer.gif

etc

etc

I dont suppose there is any way around this?

A way to get my images with alt attributes optimized for seo to appear first?

My site is here:

Unfortunately, you need to use a theme that makes better use of CSS styling, including images that are only used for layout/presentation purposes. In RavenNuke(tm), the upcoming 2.30.00 release, there is a theme called RavenIce that is a good demonstration of this type of theme coding.

You may want to modify your theme.php (and possibly some of the .html files if you theme uses them) function header.php to give alt attributes on your logo and text images. However, you might also consider giving those images files more meaningful names.
