In order to make it easier for Google to find and index your photos/graphics, Google suggests the following: 1) Only Use Google-Supported Image Formats on Your Site As we already mentioned, the image types Google can index include BMP, GIF, JPEG, PNG, WebP, and SVG, so be sure to only use these image file types on your website to make it possible for Google to index them. 2) Name the Filenames of Your Photos/graphics Using Descriptive Words Related to the Content of the Image In other words, name your image files something that is indicative of what the image is itself, rather than something like “IMG294870.jpg”.

Why the SEO game has changed There is a tremendous amount of noise around search engine optimization and how it has become “impossible” to utilize this channel as a viable means for scaling your business. It’s not impossible. But the SEO game has changed over time with the tidal wave of algorithm updates.
