You want to make good use of pictures, images, photos in your website. Pictures are very helpful in that they break up the text. They help with aesthetics. They make the website look more interesting. They also help to explain or illustrate what you’re writing about.
Pictures can be used in SEO
Pictures can also play a very important part in SEO. When you upload a picture in WordPress, you have the opportunity of adding alternate text. The alternate text is used by the search engines.
The search engines are not able to read pictures. They don’t see them as we do. But they are able to read words. So, when we enter a word in as alternate text (which is linked to our picture) it gives the search engine another keyword to use.
Alternate text can be read by the visually impaired
Of course there is a very practical benefit also if someone is physically visually challenged, and has their computer reading the website to them, they will be able to understand the picture from the description.
The good thing is you can use the alternate text as a keyword to help in search engine optimization. So when you choose your pictures for your website, Make sure that you choose a picture that matches the keyword you want to use.
