  2. As an SEO consultant and fan of your channel I was so hoping I wouldn't have a cringe experience but I was really impressed by how well you explained it. Great job as always!

  3. Alt-Text, means simply alternative text and is a HTML-attribute which describes what your browser shows if an image cannot be displayed. It is also an alternative for blind people which use screen reader. In this case the screen reader simply tells the user what the tag says. There are also Search Engines for websites like amazon which want their products to be searchable. SEO would in this case just meaning to boost someones product. Its a really loaded term which cannot be explained in 6 minutes.
