Media and SEO best practices (2 posts)

    I've read about various methods of connecting my images to pages that will improve SEO.

    My method for adding photos to my WordPress site to this point has been:
    1. upload my images to Media library 2. in Page, add Media

    Is there a different method which results in better SEO and will not be lost when upgrading to new versions of WordPress?

    Any input is much appreciated!

    For best results with photos and SEO, the photo should also be named using the most descriptive and appropriate words. Example: an image named photo123.jpg is not as useful as an image named used-books-pittsburgh.jpg.

    To change an image's file name in WordPress, you'll need a plugin, such as Media File Renamer.

    Other things to keep in mind is that each photo should have a title, caption, and alt text. You can set these items in the WordPress media library.
