Change the Format of Images:
We are aware that there are many formats available on internet like .JPEG, .PNG , . GIF, .BMP and so on. Here i am always using .PNG or .GIF format as it is occupying less space, it means the image loading time will gets faster. You can change format of images by using various software call Photoshop.

Change the Name of With Keyword:
We know that the search engine is working on keyword bases, and hence more stonge keyword you use, you post will start ranking in search result. So I strongly recommended to rename the image before uploading it on server, don’t use default name like img123.jpg, photo123.png, screenshot123.png and so on, just rename those images with at maximum 3 to 4 keyword, Name must be according to image characteristics. Suppose the image is about windows 7 tricks, than name must me windows7-tricks.png. Never use Never use “Space” & special characters %, $, #, @,&,_ In name. If you uses such a character in name of image it will not going to optimize in serach results. I am habitual to use ” – “, between two keywords.
Insert Title and Alt Tag:
Once you upload images on your server you have to add propers Attribute to the code of the image, you have to add title and Alt tag to gather it will provide information of the images to the search engine, whenever someone will use keyword to find images on Google, Yahoo, Bing and so on, on bases of image Title and Alt tag your image will start appearing in search results.
Below is the example about to adding Title and Alt tag in image code.
<img alt=”Keyword” src=”your image URL” title=”Keyword“/>
That set , To find best keyword for your image, you can use google keyword tools. I hope this tutorial will helps you to optimize your images in search results.
