Image optimization SEO

Embedding images allow brands and site developers many opportunities to figure highly on search engine results pages (SERPs) by proper usage of image optimization SEO. This is especially evident with Google’s Universal Search feature, which places related images and videos on the third or fourth notch of its every SERP. Of course this prime SERP location ensures your site’s discoverability, so there should be no reason why you wouldn’t want to optimize the images on your site.

If you have a website about German Shepherd dogs, then wouldn't it be great if an image from your website was listed above the regular results? You'd get many additional website visitors then. There are several things that you can do to improve the position of your images in Google Image Search by using simple image optimization SEO techniques as described here:
  1. Descriptive filenames

    : Use a file name that contains the keywords for which you want to be found. In this example, the file name german-shepherd-dog.jpg would be a good idea. Separate the words with a hyphen.
  2. Alt text and title attribute

    : Use a descriptive Image Alt attribute text. It usually makes sense to use the same keywords that have been used for the file name. In the same way, you should use the Image Title attribute. In this example, the Image Alt and Title Attribute would be "German Shepherd Dog":

  1. <img src="german-shepherd-dog.jpg" alt="German Shepherd Dog" title="German Shepherd Dog">

  2. Context

    : The textual content on the web page before and after the image also impacts the position of your image in Google's Image Search. Google’s image bot is believed to first look at your alt text and then match it to the rest of the text on your page. Thus, make sure these are related. In this example, the text "German Shepherd Dog" should appear close to the image.
  3. Image size

    : There is no ideal image size described anywhere in Google’s Guideline. Bigger images seem to get featured more often on Google's first result page. The bigger your image, the easier it is to get at the top of Google's regular result page. However, it’s been noticed, that images sized from 300×200 to 1200×900 pixels tend to perform the best. The general rule that applies here is that the image should be neither too big, nor too small, otherwise Google will consider them inconvenient for the users to view.
  1. On page SEO

    : Optimize the rest of your web page for the chosen search term. If the complete web page has been optimized for a keyword then it is easier to get good listings for images that are on the page. Make sure that the image that you optimize for your keyword using image optimization SEO, also looks attractive. If no-one wants to click on the image then it won't help your website if the image can be found on Google's first result page.
  2. Hotlinking

    : Hotlinking is linking to somebody else’s content, so that the users visiting your site can load the piece of content DIRECTLY from the original poster’s server. For example, if you embed a YouTube video on your blog, the video itself will be located on a YouTube server, while it will be possible to view it from your website and without leaving your blog. They say it is better to see once than to hear 100 times. That is why most websites make use of visuals at least to some extent. There are also certain types of sites (stock photography sites or photography blogs) that CONSIST primarily of images. For such websites, ranking highly in Google Images is often the only way to get Web traffic. All in all, hotlinking is considered unethical, as it steals one’s bandwidth.
