-- > Don’t overdo it, obviously
-- > Don’t get so excited about internal links that you never link externally
Optimize Images for Search
-- > Do use descriptive words in your image file names
-- > Do use your alt text to describe the photo
-- > Do choose photos that are relevant to the topic of your post
-- > Don’t use image file names and alt text as an opportunity for keyword stuffing
