When you optimize a page on your website you are helping Google index your content correctly. Google can’t read a picture so it needs to understand what the picture is about. Therefore, creating an moderate images size and choosing an unique yet good title for your images is very important. This naming and ‘tagging’ of the picture will help with the overall optimization of pages.
An ‘Alt Tag’ is something that Google reads to find out how to index the image. It also helps as part of the overall indexing of the web page. The alt tag of main image for this page is ‘Optimizing Images for the Web’. This is because that is what we want to rank on for this post.
Don’t forget to create a good caption for the image! The caption is text that appears below the image which describes what the image is about. We wanted people to stay on our site and read the content, you want to make sure they understand the image that is displayed.
Do not create BIG FILE for image! According to the research, most peoples would likely spend averaging 4 seconds to waiting for images loading time, Amazon found that, if their pages slow down by 1 second, they lose $1.6 billion a year. And Google uses page load time as a factor in their ranking algorithm. So, is better to try to keep your image file size below 70kb.
When it comes to SEO, it’s important to use acceptable keywords to help your webpage rank on search engines. Creating descriptive, keyword-rich file names is absolutely crucial for image optimization. Search engines not only crawl the text on your webpage, but they also search for keywords within your image file names.
