Why Exactly Do We Optimize Images 4 SEO?

In the block of training I want to cover the many many reasons why it is so important to optimizing the images you use in your Website. I mean, Why bother to find pictures anyway? Right? Well, Me no read good and images captivate us teddy bears and other readers and because it is so easy to mistake something when it is written, images act as stabilizers to the true intent of the heart of the writer.

Did you know that the images you use in your articles also improves the Search Engine Optimization scores in the Search Engine Result Pages? Due to a little thing called Latent Semantics that Google and other search engines are using, the images help to clarify the word satellite from being mistaken by a cowboy that can't spell and wants to herd them there cows up in the dark. You say Lanterns, I say Headlights, you say Bonnet and I say Hood, you say Bobby and I say Cop. Images say....a thousand words.

Why, for the life of me, do we cross land and sea to make our articles search engine friendly, but not our images? Did you know optimizing your images also plays a huge role in the page speed of your Website?

Benefits of Image Optimization:

  • Improves your blog’s bounce rate and increases the SEO score of your article.
  • If you create custom images, then you can also get backlinks when some other blogs use your image in their articles and give you a source/credit link.
  • Photo-sharing sites like Pinterest can drive huge amounts of traffic.
  • Photos show up in search engines and since the competition is much less in the images section, you can easily get your image ranked higher with proper optimization.
