Inserting an Image into a SEO Website

  1. Its important all the images you download be renamed according to the keywords we are targeting on the title of the page or the website in general. When I received/download images they are things like image_356787 and image_23456, or if from Photodune or other stock photography website. Keeping these file names do not help the search engines know what the image and the page it’s on…is about.
  2. There also needs to be a title and alt tag (same as title) on each image.
  3. The image should not be click-able. This means clicking the check box “remove link” before you press “insert into post”.
  4. Please consult this page real quick for an example: http://alemandallasinjurylaw.com/spanish-speaking-lawyer-dallas/
  5. Finally you are done when you hover over the image and you’ll see the title of the picture. If someone tries to click on it, it doesn’t open into a new tab and it has an alt tag that’s the same as the title.
