Use Relevant Images

This is the first an important step towards optimize image for your post. Always use relevant image which make relation with your post content if your post is about SEO then try to add SEO views layout Image. Do not insert an image having no relation with post content. You see that in this post we have placed an SEO views image. You can add more better than this one. So by putting a relevant images we can easily get massive traffics to that post from Google Search Image.

Use Quality Image Format

This is the first step to optimize your image. We are familiar that a single image can be converted into JPG, PNG and GIF, formatted. So what do you think which one will be the best to use them.


According PBT we are always use PNG format format because it get good comparability with web pages. I photo or image with PNG format maintain high quality. So it will be better to use your Main or To post image with PNG format.

Why We say that Use PNG Only for Main Image ?
By using png format for the first main image will give several benefits:
  1. A Png file is a web friendly format which get high results in Search Engine:
  2. It will show your Post in Google Image Search result:
  3. A png file Maintain good and High quality as compare to jpg:
  4. A png file has the capability to keep transparent background: 


Jpg is the second good quality format for web browser. According to PBT we would recommended to use your ordinary images with JPG format inside the post. by ordinary images we means all that other images except your post main image. because by doing this it will not compel your blog on loading time. A jpg file is much lighter then png. if you keep all of your images with PNG format inside the post then it will increase your blog leading time.

  1. Jpg file is less in size then Png:
  2. Good paractice to use for ordinary image inside the posts:
  3. Never compel the blog on loading time:

Final Decision:

By Voice of PBT we would say Use that use png format only for post main image do not use it for each image inside the posts. Make a habit whenever you try to insert ordinary image in the middle of post then oftenly format them with JPG format thats is. Most of bloggers us   

Using Keywords In Image Name

if you ever try to download image from internet and find out its name then most of the time it will look like, image2332.jpg or photo123.png. We strongly recommended do not use the images with such names and do not use them directly in your post because it will become difficult to read by robot and it will give nonsense.

Now to make it perfect for robots. We will must try to insert some reach keywords instead of names123.jpg. Simple click rename and give SEO friendly name according to your post title. in this post we are using *image-optimization-tips* So by doing this it will become easier to understand by robots.

Use Hyphen In Image Name

Hyphen is the best practice to use it in image name. Never use underscore ( _ ) or blank space because it could become difficult for robots to read it easily. How ?.

If you give a name with spaces like this ( top seo tips for image optimization) then it will automatically converted and will fill all thats blank space with this tag '%20'   ( top'%20'seo'%20'tips ). Also never use _ underscore, + etc..

Always make a habit whenever goes to rename the image use hyphen ( - ) respectively after each words like this ( image-optimization-tips-for-better-seo ).

Compress Images

If you are using Google search images for post then you should must compress your image before uploading to your post. By compressing the same image will make unique for search robots. if you left it as it was earlier then robot will not crawl it because it has already been indexed. There are numberless online tools available for compressing images. In adob-Photoshop you can easily compress by following method: 
Go to file menu and click on save for web. It will reduce the file size and will keep the image quality. Do not compress if the image is too small or have been created by you. Always try to compress downloaded image so that it could not easily detect by crawler that this image has already been indexed. 

Give Proper Dimension

Always give proper dimension to your image used in your post.Try to keep your images dimension same in every post. By giving same width and height to your image every time then all of your post will be looked same and have perfect map on blog home page. Robot will also make a string and will be easier to give same proper dimention to your main post image. If you ever analyzed we always insert image by adding this dimension.

<img width="315" height="260" src="URL of image"/>

Note: We are giving these value inside adobe-photoshop you should must customize your image by giving width=315  & height=260.  Do not try to make your image small by giving small value. Let me explain.

Remember: If you have uploaded an image to your post which have width=650 & height=450  then do not make it small by using HTML tag to make it smaller because it will same for robot and will have same loading time which was on its original size. do not use Html for reduce its size make the image smaller before uploading to your post.  

Give Title & Alt Tag

These tags summarize your image for robots what about your image is ?. These tags work as description and make the image recognizable by robot to crawl it very well. Robot does not read image if it has no proper title tag, alt tag and keywords.

Remember: Always insert title tag and Alt tag with best 3 or 4 keywords. Do not insert a line or full of sentence inside the title tag or alt tag. in this post i have placed this tags to title tags. Image Optimization Tips

Because Png is Portable Network Graphic which clearly indicate that png is made for web pages and have good comparability than jpg. We know that jpg has also a high quality but if you compare it with web pages then there will be always 1 step forward png.Most of png file easily get transparent background which i have never tried on jpg which will have this capability or not i do,not know.
