SEO For Images In Wordpress: Please Spell It Out For Me? - UPDATE-
I am getting tied up in knots over the exact, proper procedure for getting the most out of images in Wordpress.
THIS POST IS NOT ABOUT RESIZING PICTURES...
...it is about putting the correct text (attributes?) in the right places!
Make no mistake; we do have some excellent training from some of our very esteemed friends here at WA.
What I wish to do is consolidate the various contributions in one place.
I do see differing methods for applying the best SEO to our images we publish within our posts in Wordpress.
So I don't want to step on anybody's toes...mostly, it seems my own brain is squashed...and dense! lol
Here, I am setting up a screenshot just for the purpose of this post.
Again, the purpose is to set down the absolutely correct way to optimize our images for SEO in WP, to get the best ranking in the search engines.
Note: Sorry for a couple of confusing attributes there. I did not want to spam you good folks, but my site name got in there:(
So, can we all get together on the BEST, CORRECT WAY to optimize this photo image for SEO?
Here is our fun blog post example:
Post Title: Foam Pool Noodles For Summer Fun
Keyword: Foam Pool Noodles
Will you please fill in the blanks to help me wrap this around my brain?:)
So to recap, I need these boxes clarified please:
Alt Text _____
Also I need to know in my numb head, where all the capital letters, and the hyphens go exactly. I'm not too high-maintenance, eh? LOL:))
This would be sooo appreciated!! Please let me know if I should supply more information. As always I am humbled and grateful first. What Kyle and Carson have set up for us with Wealthy Affiliate make it easy to feel so:)
This post may be just the sound of one man's brain malfunctioning;)!
Thanks to all,
Good day folks!:)
Again, a special shout out to Jovo, and thanks again for your great help in optimizing all our images in WP!
I always remembered that there was an ''Advanced Options" box to be found at the end of all the info boxes to fill in. Today I was re-visiting my images in older posts, (hence the bed image) and doing the proper SEO on them. When I right click on an image, right at the top of the image, icons appear. Second from the right, there is the little Edit pencil. When we click on this, a new box appears:
So what we see here is my post image, and what I have already filled in for best SEO.
Now I need to know please...what exactly do I put in the Image Title Attribute box at the bottom, under ADVANCED OPTIONS ?
You can't see it here, but back in the "Image File Name (URL)" (the first info box in the whole process), I filled in my keyword there. This of course is the correct placement for it, as in Jovo's excellent instructions.
