Default How To Optimize Images To Attract Consumers To Your Website

If you have started to work on your SEO but you are still in the early stages, a lot of what you have read will probably be focused on the written content of your website. You may have heard that images cannot be read by the search engine spiders, and that you should therefore focus on written content.

While written content is the most important factor, you may well want to include images on your website, and if you do, you should make sure you optimize them. Optimizing images properly can help your site to get more traffic from both the standard search engines and the image search engines. So, how can you optimize images? Here are some tips:

Image is the good option to grab the customers by naming it with relevant keywords and posting it on several image websites like pinterest.

Optimizing images is one of the few ways google has continued to allow old school keyword stuffing to continue to pay off because the engine cannot determine the content of the image on its own. However, I think in a few years we will see google whipsaw all of us and punish us for the optimization.

great post! Completely agree that image optimisation is key. similar to the title, an article has to include an image that grabs the reader. Sometimes it helps to think outside the box a little when it comes to choosing your image; going for an unusual picture can peak a persons interest to then click on the link of your article because they want to see more and understand the choice of image.
