Adding images to posts/articles not only enhances its beauty but also are important in terms of SEO. Below is described ways how to optimize photos for your blog leading to maximum search engine ranking. 


Title Tags 

  • Title tags are very helpful as it describes about the images. When a visitor hovers over the images, the visitor immediately knows what the images are, thus creating an user friendly environment for your traffic. Adding a title tag to the images benefits you a lot in terms of search engine ranking.


Alt Tags 


  • Alt tags are used for putting keywords of the articles. This tag shows when a image is not available and Google puts a lot of emphasis on it. Many bloggers attempt to put all their key words in both Alt and Title tags risking themselves getting banned from search engines. 


Writing SEO Friendly Alt Text for Images


  • First, pick a image for your article
  • Second, make a list of keywords of your article
  • Third, select maximum 3 keywords relevant to your image and write them in alt-tags

    Image Optimization Factors

    Image optimization reduces bounce rate of traffic from your site. When a visitor clicks on your link in ‘search engine’ and immediately returns to the search engine without visiting your posts, the ‘search engine’ thinks the contents of your posts are not relevant to the topic and reduces your ranking. 

    Type and nature of traffic always vary. Some lazy visitors prone to read only headings and captions of the images instead of going through the entire article. A brief, good ‘image caption’ may reverse this trend and reduces your bounce rate and you do not lose ranking in ‘search engines’. 

    Use image files which are supported by ‘blogger’ and ‘JPEG’ should be your first choice as this type of image file is generally supported by all types of browsers. Using ‘PNG’ should be the second choice. The file name of the image should be related to the keywords of the article. This enables the search engine bot to index the website properly leading to increased traffic from search engine.

    Page loading time is an important factor as far as SEO is concerned. The more images you put in a single page the more time it takes to load. The heavier the file size of the images the longer is the page loading time. Observed 60 to 70 percent of viewers become impatient and leave a website if it takes more than 3 seconds to load. 

    Thus do not attempt to crowd your pages with too many images and file size of each image should be less than 100kb. If necessary crop the image to bring down the file size. Google lists all the good and bad parts of a website with the help its ‘Page Speed Insight Tool’ which is responsible for your website loading times.

    As far as ‘Alignment’ is concerned it has been observed centered images are a good choice as it directly hit the viewer’s eyes and have greater impact. Left alignment with the contents on the right also appear attractive.
