    I am trying to optimize my site and have been reading about using tags like the following to make the images on my site are search engine bot friendly. Can this be done on a wp blog site? If so where can I enter this info. I already downsized my photos to make them load faster.
    <h6><img src=”yellow-t-shirt.gif” alt=”yellow t-shirt on a model” title=”athletic women wearing a yellow tee shirt while running” height=”250″ weight=”100″ />Adidas 2011 Summer Collection </br> Yellow T-Shirt<h6>

    The blog I need help with is joeshadelgc.com.

  2. Hello there.
    You can assign categories and or tags to posts - not to images and not to pages. http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/tags/
    Please read this and watch the Matt Cutts video > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2012/03/01/revisiting-keywords-and-tags/
    Then read the reasons for non display of posts on the WordPress.com Topics pages here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/topics/#missing-posts

  3. Images are "search engine bot friendly" if their code includes the alt text. You add that in the Alt Text field when you are about to insert an image. If you don't add any alt text, WP automatically uses the filename as the alt text. So if you give intelligent names to the image files you upload and insert, you don't have to do anything.
    You can also change the alt text after inserting an image. You click on the image in the Visual editor, click the edit icon, change the "Alternative Text", click Update (image), click Update (post). Or, faster, switch the editor to Text (=code), change the alt text in the image code, click Update (post).
