How To Add Image Tags- Optimizing Your Images' SEO

When I wrote a post about going viral in your social web 2.0 marketing  we received a lot of questions. The question that was asked the most is how do you title your photos. I am first going to show you how to add image title tags to your photos and images that you put on your Active Rain Blog. If you blog on another platform than the format will be similar.

When you are using the Active Rain editor to write your post there is a little square on the tool bar that has a tree on it. This is the image uploader tab. When I first started blogging on Active Rain I had no idea how to add an image. So if you don't know, that is O.K., just follow these instructions.

After you choose a photo either browsing your computer or adding the image URL from PhotoBucket or Flickr; you  will see the image in the larger box. Above that box is where you add your Title tags and description field.

This is where you can get some great Google juice. Google and Yahoo index images. If you research your keywords and Title your images with those keywords that is going to improve your SEO for your blog and websites.  Don't be spammy.  Most of the time you will want to use your keywords but make sure your image description is really some sort of description if this is a highly searched  topic because the image description is how people who are blind can tell what the photo is about. You can add the keyword at the beginning and then describe the image after that. Please be courteous.

If you click on the Appearance tab you can resize your images to fit better on your post. Here is also where you choose in what part of the post you want your image to display on. If you click on your post where you want your image to be, make sure you see your curser there, then click the image uploader tab and from there you can choose to display the image to the right of your text or to the left, centered or at the bottom of the text. It gives you a lot of creative choices.


Remember to read all the terms of use for any clipart and images that you are using for your blogs and websites. Most of the sites that I have been to only allow personal use of their clipart not business or commercial use. I use Iclipart because there are over 7 million images that you can use on your business blogs and sites. I like it because it is one stop image search for me. If my image is not a photo that I took myself it is from IClipart. Try it for free for a couple of weeks. Right now they have a yearly special going on, unlimited use of IClipart for just $29.95. You can not beat that price for safe images that you have permission to use.
