Chris Pearson over at Pearsonified has an article on how to get out of the sandbox by taking advantage of Google’s image search.
I saw this article about a month ago and was surprised that I was doing the “half” correct thing when using images on my blog posts. I thought of sharing it with you a month ago but, of course I tested it first. Just for sure!
Even though I’m not so good to these SEO stuffs, you might as well give this tip a try. It just needs a little effort.
But take note that image search that doesn’t convert that much
Here’s what I did before that I thought was the best thing t do to my images:
- Put some alt tag
- Specify the width
- Specify the height
- And the source (Of Course!)
I bet that you’re doing the same! You might as well change those pictures and add the title tag. Just like in links, the text you input in the title tags will show when someone hovers on the image.
As Chris Specified, you should use the following tags to your images.
- The Alt Tag
- Title Tag
- And again the source!
One thing, don’t spam the alt and title attributes. You don’t want to be flagged by big G!
