Most of the time we spend on writing contents for our blog and forget about image optimisation.
Here are few points for optimising your images:
1.Add SEO friendly image names: Most blogs are not optimised for images and the images are named as image1.jpg or image2.jpg and so on which makes no sense to search engine.You need to rename your images,if your image say is related to a digital camera then rename it something like Canon-EOS-500D Kit.You need to rename your images which are meaningful and relevant to your context.
2.Alt tag : Alt tags gives more information about the image to the search engine.Considering the above example of Canon Digital Camera alt tag will be something like – alt=”Canon-EOS-500 Kit Front View”.
3. Placement of images: When placing the image in a blog post it is advisable to add the image to the relevant content as the search engines usually read the text surrounding it.
Here in Techiezlounge i have not yet done image optimisation in a proper way as i am not using alt tag,need to work on it.
If image optimisation is done properly you can get some good traffic via image search.
