Great Tips on Image Optimization


Seroundtable has a great conversation on image optimization with suggestions from some pros including: 

  • He says that you should enclose your images in divs (defined by a photo class).
  • Image titles should be in h3s or larger.
  • Images that you want search engines to know about should be 35-40% of the page size and should be on the top of the page.
  • The image name is still important.
  • Captions should be added to images.
  • Never forget those ALT tags (but TITLE tags are not as important).
  •  You can refer to the image from somewhere in your content to boost its relevance.
  • Search engines are getting smarter at figuring out what is in images (face recognition, for example).
