Adding Search engine info to photos

Unread post by pete.stanaitis » Thu Feb 14, 2013 9:16 am

Last night, at the publicity committee meeting, Juliet asked "what's Google got to do with it?" when I mentioned adding more detailed information to photos. I looked at the Wordpress method for adding photos this morning. As long as one adds a "caption", the "alt tag" (which search engines like Google use to rank content) will get the information and all will be well.

For general information, http://www.metalsmith.org gets well over half of its current traffic from search engines like Google, so, if we want to be "educating" the broadest audience, we should make our content easy to find.

We were visited by people in 86 countries over the last 30 days.
