When you ready your image according to your blog post, then save it in your pc or mobile. After that you need to check the image size because this is the very important factor in SEO, if your website load fast then user can easily visit it.
But if your website takes too much time to load then may the user bounce back and your website bounce rate may increase. So make sure your image size is maximum in 20 to 30 KB. But what we do if our image size is 1Mb or 2. Then you need to compress your image to decrease the size.
I personally use some website that is ranked on top on Google, so you just go on Google and search for compress images you see a lot of tools for this. Now if you see the image size is still above 30 KB then go to other website to convert your JPG images into web images.
Yes, blogger suggest to users the web format for images because it is fast loader and after that your website speed also increase. Now what about image SEO? When you add any image on blogger, then make sure to rename your image name as your target keyword.
This is because your image will save as your keyword on blogger, and this action helps you to rank on Google. After that add alt TXT in your image, if you don't know anything about alt TXT then click on image and click on setting icon. You see a popup and here you can see alt TXT section.
Paste your keyword in both sections to appear your article in top ranking. But remember that if you're on blogger, then choose low difficulty keywords because your website is on blogger and blogger websites can't compete with WordPress websites.
Noe the last image option is caption, this option provide you some space to add your keyword below the image and also helps you to rank on Google.
This is the most important question and everyone needs to know about it, how much images we can use in blogger post. Yup this is very significant for you, if your article length is one hundred plus words then use two images in your article. If your post length is just five hundred plus words, then there is no issue with one image.
A new user never know about the exact SEO for images, i saw a lot of new bloggers doing the mistakes and after some time they search for how to speedup website. So the main problem is to manage your blogger images.
You must know about image SEO for blogger and which size is more comfortable for your blogger post. As I mentioned above, we usually use web-p images for our website, it doesn't matter your site is on blogger or WordPress. In both case, you face low speed issue if you did not do the image SEO for your blogger websites.
When I start my blog, I use images with large size and never know how to do image SEO. But after some time I realize my website bounce rate increase day by day. So I searched for this issue and spot the main concern with my website. Every user return back from my website.
Because the page of my blog post not open quickly. So user bounce back and visit another website. This is the main difficulty due to large image size. When I check my website speed, it is 16 on mobile and a good website speed is 90+ on android mobiles.
I change a lot of themes for my website to increase my website speed, but nothing is happening with my website. Then i remove all the images from my website and convert all the images in to web-p format and compress it.
After this action my website speed increase and now my website article ranks on Google easily. And I got a lot of new user on my website every month. Now my website speed is 95+ and this is the descent speed for all blogger website.
If your website build on WordPress, then you found a lot of plugins to increase your website speed. But blogger don't have options to use these types of plugins.
I watched many videos on YouTube and people claim to remove the source code to improve website speed and trust me they never know about how to do image SEO for blogger. Blogger themes are fully customized and if you remove anything from the source code then may your template format disturb.
So i don't think this is the best way to improve website speed. Make sure to compress the image if you saw the size of the image is too large. Often large image size is 1 MB or above but after compress the image may the size of images in KB.
