Image Submission refers to posting relevant images (related to your website) in different image submission forums or sites. Images have to be optimised for them to be identified by search engine crawlers. Thereby, choosing the right image, correct file format, relevant image title, caption, alternate text and description is very important to rank the image high on SEO search. Also ensure that the image is fresh and not copied in order to rank high in SEO than our peers/competitors. The image has to be relevant to your niche to bring traffic to the website and get higher chances of conversion.
Sitemaps are also created so that search engines easily gather information about our images. Alternatively, if your website has an existing sitemap, information regarding the image can be added into it.
Different forums where we can submit images for SEO are:
- Google Plus
- Facebook, among others
Images happen to be attractive and provide a visual representation of your products/services, hence they drive a huge amount of traffic towards your website.
Always opt to high domain authority image submission sites. In other words, high PR image submission must be used. They help in better increase of website SEO ranking.
Images are as important as the text content of the website. Using high-quality and relevant images that are highly related to the topic of your page is a powerful SEO strategy that will rank your website high in Search engine indexing, thereby fetching a good SEO ranking.
