Store Images in a Folder (Directory) Named Images
We think it makes it easier on the Google Spiders to find all of your images if they are stored in a folder (directory) called “images”. Note that a directory is just a fancy name for a folder on the server that hosts your website program and files.
For Example: www.PlayGooglesGame.com/images
If you use WordPress, Google has also indicated that another good practice is to create a standalone landing page just for your images, with the ability to allow visitor comments.
We think you should do both.
If you are using WordPress, see the screenshot below from FileZilla for creating a special “images” file folder on your server that you can store your images in.
We love FileZilla for FTP (File Transfer Protocol) as a way to edit directories and upload files, for this example it’s image files. Other FTP programs are similar.
*PLEASE NOTE, YOU SHOULD BACK UP YOUR ENTIRE WEBSITE FREQUENTLY, ESPECIALLY BEFORE MAKING ANY CHANGES TO YOUR FOLDERS / DIRECTORIES.
After right clicking on the top folder and selecting “Create directory” you will be presented a pop up like below where you can type in the name of your directory. Type “images” here without the quotes.
