Google loves to send traffic via images. I receive a lot of hits from google images. Bloggernoob dot com isn’t the only blog that’s getting some google image love. I have a lot of blogs and i make sure that i post an image for each and every article i write. Putting up pictures is alwasy a good practice. Your readers will appreciate the illustration and google bots will visit more of you site because of you images.
When you insert images to you blog post, you should always label, caption, and describe your images. This makes your site and images more visible to the search engines. Even if a visitor doesn’t read any of you words, you still want that hit. Your traffic doesn’t have to be quality traffic. As long as a person clicks to your site, you will benefit from that hit. When you set out to sell links and ads, you will want to show off your traffic and rankings.
Adding the captions and descriptions doesn’t take a lot of time. Adding a pictures takes like 30 seconds. Make sure you always (ALWAYS) include a pic with description in your posts.
