Adding images correctly can make a massive impact on your ranking!

Make sure that your image is optimal for your website. What I mean by this is don't upload huge images to your website because this will slow your load time considerably. So rather use JPG images than PNG. PNG are better quality images but they are considerably larger than JPG's.

Having a slow load time impacts your ranking and your readers might just leave before your website has loaded.

Make sure your image is named correctly. What I mean by this is that your image should be named your keyword with hyphens in between the words just-like-this-example.

The next really important thing for optimizing your image for SEO is adding your keyword into the Alt Text. Here you don't add any hyphens in between the words, just type them in normally.

I hope you have enjoyed this training video on how to add images to your Wordpress posts.

At the right of the search bar you will see an outline of a star. Nice feature! You can mark any blog as a favorite to refer back to at any time :)

Nope, if you see the title of this training right? Then underneath that it says Video by LynneHuy? Just under that is a star, if you click on that it will go yellow and you can add a tag to it. This will bookmark it for you
