Image Usage

When writing articles for the web, do you use images or embed video to help get your point across?

If so, why?

If not, why not?

I do add photos and videos in my blog! By adding Photos and Video blogging, it gives me a lot of advantages over text-based blogging, and it is little wonder that this new technology is catching on all over the globe. Video blogs very effectively grab the attention of web surfers, and people are much more likely to become excited about the dynamic content of a video blog than they are
likely to find a written posting very thrilling.

The more enthusiastic viewers are about a site, the quicker the word of mouth spreads, and the more traffic the site will get and you can always upload the video's to youtube, your photos to photobucket or any other services.

I have experimentally proved that adding images with alt tag and embedding videos in Your article will definitely increase the search engine ranking and traffic of that page especially in Google.

As a reader I like to have at least one photo or graphic in an article or blog post but I'm not fond of videos. I'm always short on time and it's quicker to look at a photo and skim a post than to watch a video.

So when I write I try to use at least one photo or video but rarely use video.

I have never used imbedded vidoes. I just use images to complete the message. You can find free images on flickr.

When writing articles or blogs it is always advisable to add photos and videos. This is useful to drive more traffic to a site. Using photos with alt and title tag with the relevant keywords is a boost to a website. At the same time posting articles and blogs with eye catching photos and videos make a visitor to visit the site again and again.
