#8 Optimize Product Images

  1. Image alt-text: Use your product’s keyword as the alt text for your image. You can also include sub-keywords to improve your ranking possibilities.
  2. Image title: In the SEO world, this is definitely a big NO to an image title like image-11079 PNG. As search engine bots crawl your image title “image-11079 PNG”, it will see that the title is meaningless. Always save your product images with a title that accurately represents them.
    For example: You are selling an Apple Watch, write “Apply-Watch” or any other phrase that you aim to rank for.
  3. Image size: Large photos can slow down the loading of your website’s pages. You should always submit an OpenCart product image size in the recommended or optimum size.
