I'm working on a website that its main content are images. The images are full of text. Now, I'm assuming the best design for that kind of websites is to show a table of images (thumbnails) in the main page of the website, then you click the images and you go to the main page of that image in particular you just clicked on.
I've seen in other websites that they use the exact same image as a thumbnail in the main page of the website and in the main page of the image they use a maximized size of the image. They Increment the
height tags for the image to appear bigger. The quality goes down, the image indeed appears bigger.
Let's say the real size of the image
height=404. This is the size it appears on the main page of the website. Now, when you click the image you go to the main page of the image and then, they set
height=483. The website where I found this, they use
alt tag in both, the "thumbnail" and the maximized image. It's a little redundant if you ask me.
Now, my questions are the following:
- Is that a good option? if so... where should I put the
parameter? in the "thumbnail" or in the main page of the image. (My
best guess is that it's going to be in the main page of the image,
- Is better to create a thumbnail? If so... Again, the
altparameter in the thumbnail or in the main page of the image?
- If you were to have a website like that, what would you do about it? What would be your recommendations/advises?
My main goal at the moment is that the images on my websites (Which I create myself) to appear on the top of the searches in the main search engines (Google, Yahoo, Bing and so on.) - I know it's easier to say it than actually do it,. But the thing is that I really want to do things in the right/proper way. I want to offer content more than SEO and I'm working on it but my work is going to be unnoticed unless I do good SEO, right?
