Titling images for better SEO

Just a quick tip on titling images for better SEO.

It is good practice to use a short image description rather than the standard default image title (as given by a camera or smart device); this makes Google, Bing, and Yahoo’s web crawlers better understand your image as it relates to your website. So if your image description is titled standard-blue-tshirt.jpg and you sell T-shirts on your website, you will rank better.

Example:
Rather than this:  IMG_2456.jpg
Title your images like this: short-image-description.jpg

The same goes for movie and audio file names. Helping the search engine better understand your webpage is the best way to rank better.

This is just one of the best practices I utilize when building websites for my clients.
