Images are becoming an essential part of our content marketing strategy. Images are more engaging than text, they are easier to consume and they attract more social media shares.
On top of all, images can generate tons of traffic and exposure to your site through image search engines (Google Image search is known to be able to generate lots of visitors) and social media (Pinterest is known to drive more traffic than Twitter!).
With image content (comics, infographics, etc) getting more and more popular, there’s no wonder we need to pay more attention to search and social image optimization.
With this in mind, Internet Marketing Ninjas have launched a new free online tool: “The Check Image Sizes, Alt Text, Header Checks and More Free SEO Tool”
The tool will scan any page you point it to and return a sweet handy report on what’s wrong with the linked files and images:
- See which images are broken;
- Find images with missing alt text;
- Identify images with huge sizes!
(Notice that you can see the actual image on hover-over!)
You’ll also get the little summary of what has been crawled and what was found (potentially) wrong:
The check-image tool is heaving integrated with Find Broken Links, Redirects, and Google Sitemap Generator Free Tool we reviewed earlier.
Both the tools are free, fast and web-based (no software to download).
Feel free to play around and share your experience.
