If a picture is worth 1000 words, what is it worth if it drives traffic to your website?With this in mind, imagine what visually oriented websites like You Tube and Flickr can provide you in the way opportunities to promote your business. YouTube allows you to create videos about your business and easily place them online. Videos can be informative or light-hearted views of your company, your industry or the products and services you sell. You Tube allows you to create a special “Channel” for your business and if you title your videos and link them to your website it will help your SEO ranking too.
Flickr is another website for both still photography and videos. Uploading photos about your company and what you do creates another way for Internet users to find out about you. If you add good titles to your photos with the right key words and links to your website these photos will help your SEO ranking and will also show up in search engine results along with your website helping you to have more than one listing.
As long as we are talking about visual images, photos and graphics on your website should also be titled with what is often referred to as “Image or Title Tags” Doing this not only allows you to have additional key words on your website, but it also means that these photos will show up in internet searches under “images results” which are often on the first page of search engines results. If your website doesn’t allow you to put image tags on your photos it is time to get another website.
