Welcome to this week’s edition of the SEO Learning Corner. Last week, we covered Off Page SEO, but this week, we’re going back On Page, and discussing image optimization.
Should your images be optimized?

Image Optimization

In short, yes.
Images not only make your new blog post or page on your site. It allows content to be broken up to make it easier to read, and it adds more life to the page as well.
But you can’t just plop an image into the writing and call it day. Instead, images should be optimized just like any new page or post would be on your website.

Using images in your article

You need to make sure that you choose the right image for what you are writing about. If you’re writing an informative article with lots of stats, consider using a chart to best illustrate your point.

Choosing a file name

As unimportant of a factor as it may seem, choosing the proper name for the image file is the first step in proper optimization for images.

Image size

You don’t want your image to be too large because then it will slow down the loading time of the page.

And page speed is extremely important when it comes to SEO and user experience.

Responsive Images

With more and more users clicking through websites on devices smaller than a computer monitor, the image should be responsive.

The latest version of WordPress will automatically make images responsive that way you don’t have to do any extra coding.
