Why Images On Your Blog Are Important

    Wow! A good content really needs an attractive image because most people tend not to immediately read the post. People normally look at the image first because that’s what our eyes would want to see first before reading the title. I have two blogs, one is for my photography and the other ones are mostly tips on getting traffic, but to be honest, my photo blog gets more traffic because of the images in there.

    Hi Selma,

    Absolutely correct, images do paint a thousand words and so grab the visitor’s attention and give an idea of the content of your post, pages and even your website.

    Low quality images can ruin the effect of your post, so it’s important to realize that the images are often the element that gets people to continue reading your content.

    One thing to be careful of is to make sure you are not infringing copyright. I use 123rf.com for my images but I always go for the smallest image for within my posts 450x409px this cost me 1 credit which is very cheap but still gives me a high quality image.

    Ps like your header :)

      Hi Gordon and thanks for you comment :)
      You are absolutely right about the copyright, it’s very important to make sure you are not violating copyright. I usually use pics that are public domain, but also buy a lot from crestock.com as the smallest image only cost $1.

    Hi Selma,

    You have hit the nail on head about images, they certainly do help to attract visitors to one’s content and posts, it’s just a shame that images are now not as freely as available, and that everything has to be correctly labelled with original sources clearly referenced. And even if one were to buy images from a reputable source, you still have to be wary of the terms and conditions, especially the clauses that relate to exposure, and differentiate whether your using it for commercial or personal usage.

    Kind regards

    Sky

    Hi Selma,
    I noticed that better looking picture for you post have more people are interested to read the whole text. Personally I happens to me. When I can see a neverending text without any graphic which can entertain my eyes I better stop and go somewhere else. Maybe it is silly and simple way of thinking but I like seeing nice graphics :)
