You can put relevant keywords in Alt and Title attribute for main images of your web page. It helps Google's crawler to know what the image is all about as Google can't fetch what information an image has inside it. The title and alt attribute are not same as most people use same text for title and alt attribute for an image.
Title attribute works as title of the image however alt tag is the alternative information about image that explain what the image is all about. For example if you have an image of Microsoft Office tool on your website you can use title and alt attribute as given below:

Title:Microsoft Office
Alt:Word Processing and office related documentation tool

compressed image and alt tag - take these into consideration.

True and probably the easiest way you can optimize an image.  !-! HTML attributes aren't there for nothing.

  • Image filenames should include relevant keywords
  • Always use the "Alt" attribute tag with relevant keywords
  • Generate an XML sitemap for images and submit it to Google Webmaster Tools
  • Use compressed images (you can use Yahoo! Smush.it)

Hey monika,

you can easily do it on your own, as long as you take the time to understand some basic principles and put them into practice.

What are the most essential on site SEO elements:

- the web pages titles

- the keyword density in your site’s text

- the use of keywords in headings

- the use of keywords at the beginning of your page’s text

- the use of keywords in alt tags

- the use of keywords in metatags

- the use of keywords in meta descriptions

Hi

For on-page image optimisation, there are 3 main things you can do:

1.) Make sure that the actual filename of the image is relevent to the keyword that your webpage is optimised for. e.g. if the webpage was focused on 'dog obedience training' and your image was of a dog being obedient for it's owner - then you could name the image something like 'dog_obedience_training_in_action.jpg'

2.) Make sure that you make good use of alt and title text ('alt' and 'title' are the same thing but you should use both as they are used differently by different browsers).

3.) Finally, it is always better for the search engines to specify the width and height of the image within your <img> tag.

Hope that helps, let me know if you need any more help.

Image searches can bring the bulk of traffic over to your website when done properly. Make sure that you tag your images with keywords that are relevant to the image, and not just keywords to your website. When people see your image in the search, they won't pay any attention if it doesn't match their search query.

Of course that is a rule that applies to SEO in general, but it's just one of the many mistakes I made starting out.

 Image optimization is the basic steps for your SEO campaign. One of the basic tips for image linking is to avoid linking your images directly. Always use relevant anchor texts whenever linking your images. This is even more effective for your SEO when embedding images in a guest post or other pages intended to get a link back to your site.

Here are a few tips for optimizing your images to improve their performance on the page and in search.
1. Find the right images
2. Use the keyword(s) in the file name
3. Create descriptive alt text
4. The right anchor text
5. Make sure the image matches the content
6. Don’t keyword stuff when filling out things like image alt text. Your alt text, captions and file names should be short and descriptive, not a long list of keywords
