Will google index my pictures with display mode: hidden and read their alt text?

Hi Webflow community,

I have a page that features some nice images, but to display them how I want on the page, I use them as a background image. However, I realize google will not index my background images. If I put an image element on the page that matches the background image and set it to display mode: hidden, will that allow google to index the image and read its alt text for SEO purposes?

Hope that made sense and someone can give me some insight on this


The best way to determine what Googlebot sees it to use the fetch and render on your Google search console. No surprises that way.
