How to add images to Google Images

Images as well as positioning text are susceptible. If you are interested there are some tips to get the most out.

The images and content

Today the images are so useful for positioning as the same content. The reason: Google Images, the Google images search. Every day many people seek in the form of images just as they look in for Google Search. If your images are optimized, they'll find and the best you could get a visit and even gain a new reader.

How to Attach image

Always keep in mind these considerations while attaching an image:
  • Use img tag.
  • Put attributes width and height for the browser to continue the normal load of the page reserving your space in the image. If not registered, the browser will have to determine the size of each. The loading time increases dramatically if they are many images.
  • Do not resize images. This is to put a width (width) and height (height) which do not correspond to the image. If you have a large image and resize to small, you'll be spending more bandwidth than you need. Use, thumbnails (small versions of your image). If you have a small image and resize to large distorted quality or aspect ratio.
  • Use a good quality image. But not too heavy, so we must learn to choose the format of an image . For example: png, jpg for photos and graphics with few colors.

Re: How to add images to Google Images

As an image position

Now come the SEO details. Also take into consideration what Google says its image search engine:

Quote:
Google's robots analyze multiple factors related to web pages (like titles, descriptions and other related information) to interpret and index the images on the Web. Google also uses sophisticated algorithms to index Google Images to eliminate duplicates and to ensure that it is listed first with the highest quality results.
SEO and the images we already know about, follows this list of recommendations:
  1. Alt attribute. Inevitable, the attribute alt = "keyword" is vital to tell Google that is our image. The ideal would be to match the search attribute for which we want to position the image. This attribute says what is in the image in 3 or fewer words and are commonly used nouns and adjectives.
  2. The image must be on a page or post with the same context. That is, both the page title, description and content must have the same keywords as the image. This will give a big boost to the positioning of the image.
  3. Proximity of keywords. In addition to having the entire page the keywords, we must also put before and after image. For example:


    ... And this is the logo of Google Images
  4. Title attribute. Also known as the image description. Describe the image but should not be too long. For example if you put a picture of a Google office, the attributes could be: alt = "Google site", title = "Google Headquarters, Mountain View." Can also be used so that if you do an article about Google buying the company X and have an image of Google, put alt = "Google", title = "Google Buys X".
  5. Name of the related file. Many times when placing images, indecipherable up with the same name that found them. Ranging from numbers, names in English, mixing characters of scripts, name the image size, name more numbers, etc. The suggestion here is to make it as short as possible and containing at least one keyword that go in the alt attribute.
  6. Long descriptions. They are made using the longdesc attribute pointing to an html or text where you put the detailed description of the image. When using this?. When for example we have a table or chart of statistics, the description would be the transcript of the data. Also when we have a cartoon or comic strip, also the long description would be the transcript. And in general, any image that shows something that can be transcribed and is relevant.

Re: How to add images to Google Images

The code for an optimized image would be more or less as follows:

Code:
<IMG SRC = "firstround.gif" longdesc = "firstround.htm" 
ALT = "first round results." TITLE = "results first round 2011." />
When positioning images

You can align all the images you want on your website, but especially those that are original or which have all related content. Definitely you should apply all these considerations if you have a gallery, or place where the main attractions are the images. In that case it would be practically an obligation. It is also useful position when you put images in your posts to give more visibility to it and get more traffic.

I hope these tips serve and although not optimize all the images on your site, always good to get into the habit and take advantage of this kind of statement.
