Default Here is a few SEO tips for images

The first thing that you are going to want to do is know what keyword phrase you are targeting. Do not go with a single keyword, it will be too difficult to rank for something so specific.

Once you have your keyword phrase rename your image to something like this: blogging-tips.jpg . Make sure that you put dashes between your words, not just spaces. Spaces confuse the search engines.

If you are uploading the image to your website on a platform such as WordPress make sure that you fill out the image title, alt title and description. Use the same keyword phrase in each place.

I hope that this helps you.

Images alone won't do anything for your site in raising it's rank. In order to raise your ranks you need strong titles, description of pages and great content. On site blogs help because it is new or fresh content being created which is what search engines like to see. To answer your question specifically, you need to tailor it for search engines. If you have a picture of a big red hat then label it for what it is in this manner

if your images are unique and have alt tag with targeted keyword, one part is over, next depends on how people share it on photo sharing site and tag it?

For image optimization, use alt tags for all your images and insert your keywords in the alt tags.Always images has to be specified with the alt tags.

Default Don't forget Title attribute and Caption

I have had good success getting images noticed by Google by including the title attribute in any link using the image: title="put title here", goes in the opening anchor tag. Also make sure you use a caption with your keywords for the picture. Google looks at image file name, alt tag, caption, title tag in any link associated with the image, and text on the page near the image.

And one more thing, Google also looks for fresh content in its image search. If you want to make sure your image stays on the first page of image results you need to keep that image fresh by reusing it every couple of months or so in a new post/page.

You can also set up a special image sitemap for Google that will help them index the images on your site.

You need a good description for your images. That's how you can do it then link building.

Good luck!

You can add "Alt" tag to images with targeted keywords. Another way is to submit your images on various image submission sites such as pinterest, filckr, photbucket.
