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.
The top search engines in the world, such as Google, Ask, and Bing, all put a big emphasis on the “user experience”. Every search engine will reward websites, blogs and pages that publish high-quality, related images, combined with great content. Obtaining higher rankings on a search engine will lead to more user traffic. Furthermore, increased traffic can become a potential new revenue channel for any website owner.
A website owner must keep his pages as engaging as possible in order to create a steady flow of new visitors, and to keep the current visitors stimulated. While a visitor must enjoy reading your content, value should also be placed on that visitor having an engaging, and entertaining user experience. Buying a domain, getting a website building platform and writing content is not a catchy process like getting free pictures for your website.
