Couple of days ago i am working over a project in which i am fixing the issues reported by SEO Tool Kit (use for site analysis) which is installed in IIS 7 (You can Install it in IIS 5 and IIS 6 as well). The SEO Tool kit is very much helpful if you want to check the errors and violations of the website that are damaging the ranking of your website or specific web pages in the search engine, especially in google. I got lot of violations about alt tag is missing, when i was fixing all these violations then i got an asp:Hyperlink that contains an image which alt tag was missing, i checked all the possible properties of the asp:hyperlink to give alt tag to the image, like ToolTip property but i was fail to achieve what i want, moreover the HyperLink control doesn't have an AlternateText property.
Then surfing the internet i got the solution and it was quite easy and surprised to me. The solution was to give text between starting and ending tag of the asp:hyperlink and then that text will become the alt of the image, like given below
<asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server" ImageUrl="~/Images/proceed.gif" 

So that's it. The word Proceed will become the alt tag of the image located inside the hyperlink.

Stay tune with because in future i will write very informative and detailed tutorials about SEO Tool kit, which is used for analysis of website to improve its ranking in the major search engines. Also i will tell you how to deploy a website in windows 2008 R1, you can then open your own hosting company as well if you have servers that are capable to run the websites :). But still bottom line is to stay tune with
