You have written your latest blog post making sure it is full of quality content, relevant to your audience and their interests, you create a killer graphic in Canva that can be utilised on pinterest as well, and you upload it to your blog post to complete your article - but you may have forgotten one important factor... Google can't read images or worded text on images!
As a blogger, you need to have a good understanding of SEO (search engine optimisation) to increase the visitors to your site in an organic way creating sustainable traffic. Images often are forgotten or the last thing added to the post and optimising these for searches can often be overlooked. Search engines aren't humans so we need to name images correctly so the engines can "see" the images. This is also helpful for users who are visually impaired to work with reader programs that utilise Alt Text.
Here are our top tips from Blue Bird Internet Marketing Australia, to help boost the SEO on your blog and website images.
Remember SEO on images makes up only a small section of optimising your blog post to be found by search engines. We recommend completing all seo sections on your blog post to increase organic traffic, but also to ensure you are sharing your blog post in other areas (e.g. social media profiles).
