When it comes to optimizing images for the web, we do this so we create the most high quality image for the user. One of the ways that we do this is by resizing the image so that we don’t slow our page speeds down. We also can use many different tools to help us with compressing an image such as Gimp or Trimage. Finally, make sure to make your images mobile friendly as many people will view your website from their cell phone.
- To resize images, choose the appropriate format and experiment to find the best compression rate.
- Choose file names that make sense to both people and search engines.
- Image titles, alt tags, captions and structured data all contribute to optimization.
“Not only do images make your content more accessible, attractive, and engaging to users, but they’re important for SEO.”
