    Images can make your article look more attractive and encourage people to read it. When you don't include images in the article, your visitors may not be motivated to read it because it will look dull and harder for them to finish it. Images help the visitors to quickly finish reading it in a short time. You must always include at least 1 image in the article. You will find that images can encourage people to social bookmark and share your article on the social media network. The following are a few ways you can optimize the image for SEO.

    Naming Your Image for SEO
    Many webmasters have the habit of not naming the images accordingly when they included them in the articles published on their sites. Instead of naming the image pic1 or image 1, you should rename it based on the title of the article. For example, if it is a GTA 5 game blog post, you can name it something like GTA-5. You can include keywords in the file name of the image and the description of the image to enable it to appear in the image search result.

    When naming the image, you must consider the search patterns of your consumers. You can find out about the search patterns of your consumers by reviewing the organic keyword search term in your web statistics. If you don't have this information, you must make sure to include the keyword in the image name. If you add a description to the image in your WordPress blog, the description will appear below the image. This allow your readers to understand what the image is about.

    Addition of the Alt Tag

    seo-alt-tag.

    Besides, you can optimize the image by adding an alt tag. Alt tag is a small tip that appear when someone hover the mouse over the image. Alt tag can help you the search engine to recognize the picture. To add an alt tag to the image, you just add alt=”alt text” onto the image tag.

    Image Must Not Be Too Big
    The size of the image file must not be too big because it can cause the to load slow. Your visitors will get irritated when the page load is slowed down due to the large image. The larger the dimension and quality of the image, the bigger the size of the image file will be. Image file extension such as .jpeg and .gif are smaller in size compared to extensions such as .bitmap and .png. The .jpg is suitable for photographs while the .gif is suitable for images that do not have a lot of details such as logo. The .png is suitable for webmasters who want to display the image in the highest quality without the loss of any detail. There are a number of browsers that do not provide support for the .png.

    Editing the Image With an Image Editor Before Uploading to Your WordPress Blog

    Compress-Image.

    You can use an image editor to compress the quality of the image to a lower level so that it will be smaller size. If you don't compress the image, you will find that the hard disk space on your shared hosting plan is quickly used up and you have to upgrade to better hosting soon. If your WordPress theme has a fixed width image content area on the front page that require 600 pixels, you should use a larger image that is at least 800 pixels. If you often find images to use from the image search result, you will find that many of the images are large in size. You must first use an image editor to scale the image to a smaller size before uploading it to your WordPress blog. It is important that you don't auto resize the image as it will look blurry. For example, if the original size of the image is 600 x 400 pixels, you must not set your blog to automatically resize it to 1200 x 800 pixels.

    Build Backlinks to Your Image
    If your images to appear everywhere in the image search results, you will have to build backlinks to it. When building links to the image, make sure you use the right anchor text. You should rotate the anchor text by using different anchor text for the backlinks to the image for the best SEO results. Besides, the image should be wrap around the content that are relevant.

    Thanks for the info. But I've always been confused about what length should have an ALT attribute. Are longer descriptive tags better, or short succinct ones?

    1. Try to reduce the weight of your images, but not to the detriment of quality.
    2. Pick a relevant filename.
    3. Use alt attributes to describe your content as accurately as possible.
    4. Pay attention to the content that's surrounding your images.

    Image ALT should be one line or like a Title. Long ALT give negative impact on optimizations.
