In wordpress we can add image by three method. 1.Upload, 2.Media Lib. and 3.Insert image url. my question is, what is benefit of SEO when you choose 3 option(Insert image url). because i use 1st option(upload) on the one of my blogs to increase it's page speed.
All images are going to be a URL in a webpage no matter how you load them in Wordpress. The html will be something like
<img src="example.com/myimage.jpg" alt="my images"> The only difference in the 3 options is the location Wordpress uses to write the
<img> tag. As a result, I doubt that there's any difference to SEO unless the image URL is to another website, in which case you a might pass a miniscule amount of link juice.
The three choices will either be (1)a new file you add to your image library, (2) an existing file you have in your image library or (3) a URL to where the file is already hosted on a website.
suppose we use option 3rd, so increse the speed of web page? Feb 19, 2020 at 6:42
Doesn't WordPress create both a real URL and an HTML page containing nothing but the image for anything uploaded to the Media Lib? I seem to recall Yoast trying to fix that issue: yoast.com/help/redirect-image-attachment-urls Feb 19, 2020 at 10:01
@StephenOstermiller thanks for pointing that out. I had wondered why all of my WP images were getting backlinks. That explains it.– TreborFeb 19, 2020 at 14:46
