When it comes to SEO friendly image, “image title, alt text and description” matters the most. Because search engines are able to read our images through these.

How to reduce the size of any image
However, we have already explained how to reduce the size of the images and you can read for detailed information.
But let’s also tell you in short here how to reduce the size of the image.
Whether you want to reduce the size of the image to make SEO friendly, or normal use is all process for the same.
You can use any app, web or plugin to reduce your images.

How to create SEO friendly image for a blog
We make our images SEO friendly at the same time when uploading to the blog post. Just write or edit your content and upload the image. The sidebar will have all the options from where you can make your image SEO friendly.
If you are a blogger, you know well how important the title is for content. In the same way, the title is important for our blog images. After all, if there is a title of everything, it goes much better.
Don’t put anything in the title, but you have to put a better title, completely unique and put the image’s pointed title in the image. That is, what is happening in the image.
- Good image title – Mark Zuckerberg with his friends
- Bad image title – Photo of Mark Zuckerberg and his friends
Description for images means a lot although we can’t lengthen the title we can put detailed text about our image in the description.
So try to put a good description of your image, perhaps you can get a good result.
Although we get a much better result or not, we should not make any mistakes on our part, do everything in a much better way.
Use alt text
It is important to use alt text. You’ll enter alt text according to your own, but you can also enter the alt text and title the same or similar to your image if you want.
If you forget to put the title, description of your image, there is no point but don’t ignore alt text. If you want to make your blog images SEO friendly, you must enter alt text in your image because, in the case of an image, search engines first give importance to alt text.
Although it also helps to make images SEO friendly, I don’t use it myself so I won’t recommend it highly, but if you want, you can use captions in your blog images. However, captions are mostly better to give image credit.
Captions I don’t use because it’s always visible in the footer of the image, as a result, the image gets a slightly unattractive look. And as far as the point is alt text, title, Description, all of them are invisible.
Use image sitemap
You know that there are sitemaps for the blog/websites. But you may not know about image sitemap
Yes, For blog images also have a sitemap system, So that the sitemap allows all your images to be arranged for a search engine in one row. This image is a great fact of making SEO friendly.
You can use jetpack sitemaps if you wish. jetpack generates our blog’s images sitemaps very simply. I also use “jetpack image sitemap”. I hope you have made the images of your blog SEO friendly, if you have a question related to it, you can feel free to tail us.
