Strategic Use of Images in Search Engine Optimization

No Comments

When assessing page structure and layout, there is a subtle, yet strategic way to use images in an SEO-friendly manner (beyond ALT tags) that improves your search rank while allowing you to integrate the necessary marketing message(s). Confused? Let’s look at an example:

Suppose you operate a travel site and you want to optimize a given page for the term “Las Vegas hotel”. Suppose that you also want to include an enticing marketing message such as “Book now and save 20%!”. The aforementioned tagline lacks descriptive text, but possesses persuasive characteristics. That being said, you may want to place the tagline in an image and the key phrase (i.e. Las Vegas hotel) in a header tag. This places emphasis on the desired term, yet still provides a marketing opportunity without compromising keyword consistency.

In other words, images are a great place to insert marketing messages that lack the necessary keywords and phrases. Leveraging this technique will ensure that descriptive text is indexed, while less marketing jargon is overlooked. The combination of keyword-rich content and enticing messaging will satisfy both sides of the strategic equation.

    I immediately thought of Ariel when I saw your selections; well done! Of course, I'm totally loving the polish pick as well as the accessories, esp that ring! With the changing of the seasons, I'm looking forward to "charging" new boots, lots of sweaters, and chunky accessories. Oh and lots of new makeup of course!

    ! I used to be a quantity person and now that I have a 1 year old, I have to go with a "uniform" of pieces I love and feel my best in. Also love Method! Their dishwasher pellets are the only eco brand that works…and I've tried them all!Heather

    It is all in the family this Veteran’s Day! Uncle Eric and Aunt Tami were proud to host/represent Our Dad’s Flag doing what we each do well…run marathons, and attend parades on 5th Ave, respectively! So it is a T&E shout-out to Our Dad & the Troops…we miss you and look forward to your homecoming. Love and prayers to Our Dad, Our Dad’s Family, and the Troops.

    Merci pour ce message ! On jette un coup d’oeil sur notre feuille de route et on vous envoie les informations très rapidement. Dans notre souvenir, les distances n’étaient pas trop fatigantes. Nous avions passé la nuit à Chicanná après avoir visité la réserve de Calakmul et, le lendemain, nous avions rejoint Santa Elena. C’est une très belle région, vous allez vous régaler !A bientôt,Emilie&Jean-Rémy

    Sometimes, infections in newborn…infants are due to common pathogens such as strep or staph. A mother who is infected with a sexually transmitted disease, such as gonorrhea or chlamydia, also can pass along this infection to the baby — which can show up as pink eye….

    We have the same problem. Picking the place is always the hardest part! It’s funny though, when we’re not planning on going out there’s lots of places that I make mental notes to try. But when it comes to the day to pick a new restaurant all those mental notes fly away!

    Oh wow. You remember the bad old days of Ted Bundy. What a crazy, crazy dude. I can see why all the doors and windows would be locked. What frightens me about Ted Bundy is that his appearance did not match the monster lurking inside him. If he approached you smiling and friendly, you’d probably smile back and never realize something was wrong until it was too late. Thanks for stopping by.

    1b5Outlaw,The above quote not only affirms differing energies but notice the energies St. Gregory discusses. The Reformed affirm that God only foreknows precisely what he causes to occur. For Calvinists, His foreknowlege IS his determined creative act. Yet a proper distingishing between the manifold energies of God makes this unnecessary and untenable. God can foreknow without causation.

    I was given trazadone for my my insomnia..it works fast! But don’t take too much because one night I took 2 pills and slept for 13 hours.. I was given Lexapro for my depression/anxiety/PTSD and it worked miricals.. However, if it’s just been especially stressful lately, meds for depression aren’t going to work.. Lexapro is for a chemical embalance in your brain..If your chemicals are balanced it’s not going to work..

    selama informasi yang diberikan berguna bagi orang lain bukan untuk hal yang dilarang agama, maka itu bisa dikategorikan ibadah. kalau tidak yakin yang ditulis adalah benar, ya.. jangan diterusin nulisnya. tapi kalau sifatnya kita membuka diri untuk menerima saran maupun pembenaran dari orang lain apabila ada kesalahan, kenapa mesti takut. toh kesalahan itu adalah bukan kesengajaan.kalau sengaja menulis hal-hal yang salah …itu mah lain lagi urusannya. wallaahu a'lam
