Local SEO Marketing | Post Optimization | Finding Free Images

You need images for your blog posts, but who wants to pay for images? Certainly not I.

Do not worry, the world wide web is awash in free images which will assist you in your local SEO marketing efforts.

Excellent places are:

Google Images

Search for your keyword phrase, and in the Search Engine Result Page (SERP) select “images” which is the link just to the right of “web”.

Your display is then changed to a display of nothing but images.

NOT ALL OF THEM ARE FREE so be sure to check for copyright notices, which are apparent in the content of the article where the image resides.

This article is part of a series about local SEO marketing. For access to all the articles in the series, click on the link in the prior sentence.

Yahoo Images

Yahoo images works just like Google images, and again like Google images it is your responsibility to verify the image is not copyright protected.

Google (or Yahoo) for “free images”

You will find lots and lots of places. I’m resisting specifying specific location as they periodically come and go, but the search engines will keep you up to date.

IMPORTANT POINT: If you use an image from another web page on another website, it is good form to give them a link as “payment” for the use of the free image. I’ve also found that when I do this, about 1 in 50 web masters notice and give me a link back in return.
