Then it began.Six months after hours of tedious work , I broke intorepparttar top ten forrepparttar 131831 search term “Mandeville , Jamaica”.I was elated by that achievement , because ofrepparttar 131832 obstacles that I had faced and because most of my competitors wererepparttar 131833 “big boys”. A few months later I won an award forrepparttar 131834 work that I did on my website and to top it all – a number 1 (# 1 ) listing in Google , Yahoo and AOL.This was accomplished by overcoming many obstacles alongrepparttar 131835 way most of which I just ran right over.

This experience taught me a lot about life and how I should follow my dreams through to end.So my friends in whatever you are striving for at this very moment and you are not seeing any results , push on.Because once you do so success WILL come , it's just a matter of time.Keep on hanging in there , my brothers and sisters and I will see you atrepparttar 131836 bank.Remember , life always goes in favor ofrepparttar 131837 brave and action taker.What action are you taking today to achieve your goals ?

To your success and mine ,

It's also essential for visitors using text-only browsers. Are there any? Yes - plenty of blind or partially sighted web-users have them, and without an "alt" they won't know whatrepparttar picture is about. If it is a "clickable" picture, linking to another part of your site, or to a download, they won't be able to access it.

Also, many users surf withrepparttar 131830 pictures turned off, to speed up page downloads. All they will see is an empty square - your "alt" will tell them what they're missing.
