Be unique It’s easy to just get stock photos and put them up on your blog or use them with little modification, but it will quickly become obvious that you’re doing just that. It will deter visitors from your site if everything they see they’ve seen elsewhere. If you’re using stock photos, ensure that you modify them so they look unique to your site. Also, explore having some unique design elements to your brand to help keep your messaging top-of-mind for your readers/viewers long after they have engaged with your content.

Fix your metadata Your priority has to be the audience that will be viewing and interacting with your content, but visual content is also a great opportunity to get SEO benefits. You can do this by ensuring that your filename, alt text and other details are optimized for SEO. One way to decide on a naming pattern for your images is to name them in the same order that most of your audience search for your keywords.
