First of all, I don’t think that can be done. Does it affect SEO ? and the answer is yes.
As far as I know from your other posts, you are familiar with this SEO work. Yes, it affects even the smallest detail, and the things you need to pay attention to for SEO things are too much, and the file name takes up very little space among these other considerations.
For example: if “alt text” and “caption” give 5 points for SEO, the file name gives 1 point (I give the figures for example only, please do not accept precise information)
I don’t know what size of competition the industry is dealing with, if this is a virgin area, there is nothing as important as the classic H tags and content to be loved by the user (even the competitor size will be ineffective, the content to be liked by the user/visitor is the most important)
In this article, Google touches on visuals and talks about the point you are concerned about. Even your file paths must be readable by the user.
When you read the article, you’ll see, they just mentioned twice but If you don’t have big competitors in the market you’re trying to be a leader in, this is a small detail.
If it is the opposite and your competitors are doing the right thing on behalf of SEO, then this and many small details like this will be important.
And if this is so important, it will be the fastest way to contact the Bubble team and indicate your request.
Thanks for the the input. I will have a read through the article you linked. I am not sure if there is a plugin that could do this. I find it a bit difficult to search for plugins but will give it a go.
In my case I do think that all the small details will count. I am hoping to take product information from the product SKU to use as the basis of the file name, which would match up with the alt_text.
I’m not so sure, as image files, by default, aren’t referenced directly by their upload URL. Instead, that “master file” (which resides in on Bubble’s Amazon storage) is run through Imgix to create a context-optimized variant. That behavior can be bypassed with a query string parameter (which I don’t recall off the top my head), but I don’t think I’d want to for most images, as it’s a really nice (but little known and under-appreciated) feature of the Bubble platform.
EDIT: Having said that, I don’t think the file name itself is changed, so your approach may still be valid.
Where did you find that information? I have searched the manual and reference but can’t find it using the search function. Could you share the link? The URL on the reference and manual provide the location of scroll on page so can go to a section easily with the URL
