How can I do an image submission in SEO?

Image submission in SEO involves leaving images related to your website in different image sharing or submission sites. It entails choosing the right image, alt text, file format, and description.

You can make image submissions either by posting images on your website or submitting images to various image submission sites. Popular sites include Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, Tumblr, Twitter, Flickr and Instagram. To submit an image on any of them, simply create an account and post your images.

Optimize Images with Good SEO

Image submission won’t work for you if you don’t sufficiently optimize your images. You need to have images that search engines can easily crawl.

Here are some ways to optimize images for submission.

Image Selection

It’s important that you always select images that are related to your industry or niche. Also, avoid using copyrighted images or anything with a watermark that isn’t yours. You can use sites like Flickr to find high-quality images without copyright restrictions that can get you in trouble.

File Format

Common image file formats include JPEG, PNG, and GIF. Most browsers support JPEG, but be careful to avoid data compression, which can reduce image quality. PNG typically has great resolution, while GIF images are normally used for logos, art, and animations.

Image Optimization

Reduce the size of images to help pages load faster, while avoiding compromising quality.

File Name

Use a relevant file name for all images that indicates what the image is about.

Alternative Text

Alternative text, or alt text, is text that visually impaired readers can hear read aloud to describe images. It’s also useful for SEO purposes. You should optimize in a similar fashion to file names.


Create sitemaps to make it easier for search engines to gain more info about images. You can also add image information to your existing sitemap.
