Why Image Optimization is Important for Blogs
Today, instead of explaining why image optimization is important for blogs I will simply demonstrate it.
These are the top 12 search referers this month on SEO 2.0:
|Search Term||Source (Google)|
|best rss reader||search|
|who to follow on twitter||search|
|fake breasts||image search|
SEO 2.0 has much more direct, social media traffic and other referers than search traffic so it might be a bad comparison. Nonetheless the word "alone" brings 10 times more traffic than the term "SEO blog" I'm globally in the top 10 on Google.com (at 7 recently viewed with an US proxy).
So do I need to tell you why image optimization is important for blogs?
oriented blogs can get big amounts of image search traffic.
Image search as part of Universal Search is a must optimize for in SEO 2.0
Some bizarre aspects of it:
- I'm at number 1 in Google.com for "Wordpress" in image search.
not even on the first page resultsat 10 in the US for "alone" in image search so there must be a whole damn lot lonely people out there.
Next week I will tell you how to optimize for Google image search. It's different than most people tell you. Forget all the alt-attributes etc.
