Optimizing Images for SEO

Did you know that you can also optimize the use of images on your site? All images have a file name and an ‘alt’ attribute, which allows for you to specify alternative text for the image, in cases where it cannot be displayed (eg if your user is viewing your site on a browser that does not support images).

Optimizing Images for SEO

An Image Sitemap can provide Googlebot with more information about the images found on your site, these images can also appear in Google’s organic search results, see above! After you’ve submitted your image Sitemap, Google says it’s best to wait up to 5 days to make sure there’s been enough time to index it.
