When did you last upload a photo to your website? You probably downloaded it from a photography site, uploaded it to your site, and inserted it.

2018 data shows, 20% of US web searches are made in Google Images. SEO experts and fans know image optimization is important.

Robbie Richards generated 150,732 visits by using alt image tags, image compression, and other SEO techniques. You are wasting a valuable SEO resource if you do not optimize your images.

Image optimization provides a number of benefits, including improved user experience, faster page load times, and more sorting options. And it's taking on a bigger and bigger role.

1. Choose the Correct Image Format

Before uploading images, choose the best file type. PNG and JPEG are popular web image formats.

2. Compress Your Images

Before uploading images, compress them. Photoshop or TinyPNG can do this. TingPNG has a WordPress plugin too.

3. Create Unique Images

This is the place where you'd like to see your photos. Stock images will make your site look generic, just like the tens of thousands of other sites out there.

4. Beware of Copyright

If you violate copyright, the DMCA may issue a warning. If a content owner sees his site's content, he can issue a DMCA removal order.

5. Customize the Names of the Image Files

SEO requires descriptive, keyword-rich file names.  Not customising the image file name is like ordering a blank meal. Awful.

6. SEO Friendly Alt Text For Image

Alt tags are a browser's alternative to images. The alt attribute describes an image's content, like the title.

7. Create the Title and Description of Your Page

Google also revealed that the image search algorithm takes into account the page's title and description.

8. Mobile-Friendly Image

Mobile SEO... It can have a high bounce rate and low conversions. It can boost rating power and user participation, though.

9. Add Images To Your Sitemap

You want images somewhere in your site maps, whether you're adding them to your existing site map or creating a new one just for images.

10. Define Your Dimensions

AMP and PWA require image dimensions in the source code. If you're not using it, set the width and height anyway. It's user-friendly.
