Its a proven fact, image SEO is fast becoming a major source of high quality traffic.
Too many marketers dont actually think about optimizing the images or videos they add to their site content and that is costing them a lot of free traffic.
We know the search engines want to see high quality content and want to see it delivered in diverse mediums, so text , images, info-graphics, videos are a great way to deliver your content and ensure you provide the search engines with what they need to rank you high.
One area of organic SEO is traffic from the image search function. This is a massive growth area for SEO and because the majority of marketers dont actually optimize their content correctly for the image search you can drive lots of targeted traffic for a few minutes work.

Essential Image SEO Factors to be aware of
This is a relevant part of image SEO so make sure you rename the file name with an accurate keyword phrase better suited to describing the content of the page.
Make sure you DO NOT USE UNDERSCORES ( _ )when adding more than 1 word and ALWAYS USE DASHES ( – ) The search engines read underscores as 1 word with no spaces.
The most important single aspect of image SEO is the correct use of the ALT Tag.
If you are using Word press and you should be, it is very simple to add the correct ALT and file name to your images. When you upload your images simply name them in the field provided. Do not use more than 130 characters and ideally you should use 4 – 5 words making sure your main keyword is in the first couple of words
Nor overly important for SEO but this is what the user sees when mousing over the image so worth adding it anyway and just needs to be the same as the ALT Tag.
Not required and of no real importance for ranking or SEO Benefits.
