Why are content-related images so important?
Any webmaster who starts building a website will tell you that driving traffic is always on his mind. As early as the beginning stages of creating a new online site, a website builder’s goal is to develop a website that will be be able to encourage optimized user engagement. A good webmaster makes sure that every page is easily clickable, effortless to navigate through, and most importantly, filled with high-quality interesting images.
How to get free pictures for your website and why images are super important for SEO.
Building a website with images is not easy, it is very hard work. A significant amount of quality images are protected by copyrights, and these images usually require a fee for the right to use them. Free images are hard to come by, and a website with no images can be boring, and uninviting. Websites that lack visual enhancement from images, will often run into difficulty creating engagement among their website users. Furthermore, visitors to these kinds of sites are less likely to be willing to dive into the written content, and follow the website on a permanent basis.In fact, 8 out of 10 visitors to your website will make a decision on whether to stay or leave the website, based upon what they see in the first 7 to 10 seconds. Most websites have only one chance to create a great first impression that will keep users from clicking to the next site! It can be a very hard task to keep users engaged without images, and it can be an even harder task to attract a new flow of visitors when your website lacks engaging images.

Web surfers, on the prowl for a product or service, especially in the highly competitive niches will take little or no time to read the content of the page. It makes no difference to them whether the content is the most pertinent, but by just taking a moment or two to scan thoroughly they will discover exactly what they’re looking for.
2012 was the year of the Panda as far as Google was concerned, with the search engine giant really putting the pressure on website owners and designers to raise their standards as far as content was concerned.
