Baby steps here on ways to improve SEO results with images. I have ruminated before on communicating sans words.   Improving search result with your images can be achieved by adding a few meta terms.

Here is a recent post from SEOMoz on somebasic ways to improve search results for images. The video clip talks about the following SEO topics:

  1. File Name – descriptive
  2. Duration – specify how long the video is
  3. Alt Text – variation summary
  4. Surrounding text – brief overview about the piece

Metrics can be collected on each of the topics above. Also, you can collect data on various forms of engagement

  1. # watched only the beginning
  2. # watched to the middle
  3. # watched entire clip

While not a great embedd, as an alternative to the above link, you can use the link to watch the White Board Friday video :
