We all know how important photos are for the web, how images make things look good and help get a point across. But it is sometimes hard to find the photos that you need, especially for a small town area or a specific area in a large city.
This is why I recommend using a camera and going out and taking pictures of the local area and uploading them on your website. You may not think that this is a good way to do SEO, but it really works well!
Giving these images away for free to people so they can use them for their website, creates traffic to your website and a value proposition for search engines like Google and Bing. They will rank your website in the image search as well as rank your website higher in regular search. This is done because people are finding value on your website and spending time there.
I know this can seem like a little bit of a work around, but adding value to the web is always a way to win. So I recommend going out in your area and taking pictures of different monuments, main areas, other businesses, streets and things that businesses would need pictures of, and offering them on your website. On SkyPoint’s website we have many local photos available, you can find those areas here below:
Graphic Design/ Web Design Stock Images
Mountains & Lakes
Billings Montana Photography
On the Rims
Grand Ave Businesses & More Photography
Chico Hot Springs Photography
We offer these images for free and only ask that the person using them link back to our website if they would like to. This has helped many local businesses as we see the pictures showing up on a lot of websites and even in print advertising and it’s helped our rankings as well.
So try adding images to your SEO and see how well it works for your business!
