Images that you use anywhere in your content will enhance the website’s SEO score, make your articles more search engine friendly and will improve the site’s loading time.

  • By creating custom images, you can get yourself some links from other websites/blogs that might use the image or share it on social platforms.
  • Photo and image sharing social platform Pinterest is great source of traffic to draw from.
  • Keywords are Essential: Use keywords from the article that might be of interest to people, in the description.
  • Use Hashtags: Hashtags have become a popular trick to categorize information on the internet. Use 3–5 hashtags in your pin descriptions to help Pinterest identify the interest categories your image fits into.
  • Omit URLs in the Description: Just like Google doesn’t want spam content filling up the search results page, and has ways of detecting it, Pinterest does too. Don’t insert the URL in the pin description, because it will already be attached to the pinned image itself.
