Google Glitch

Look carefully at the image below. Right before the text that appears from the post below, Google has included the  file name, “stack-of-books”.

I realize the search query term ‘books’ is in bold text and appears in the file name, but why is it necessary to include file names in the SERPs? Hard to believe it’s intentional.


  1. it’s the alt text for your books image, and yes I’ve seen it before

    Forgot that WP adds alt text, but still, what purpose does it serve to show it in the SERPs? Why would G intentionally show ALT txt?
