Add Images to Your Google Sitemaps Extension

We all know how important site images our when trying to optimize our websites for search engine indexing, right?  When highlighting important website content on our site, we use sitemaps. But sitemaps often preclude images we used on our site – leaving search engine not to notice or find them.

This is particularly true for images that are only accessible via JavaScript forms, or for pages that contain many images but only some of which are integral to the page content.

Now Google is making it easier for webmasters to add images to sitemaps extension.  That is for each URL that you list in your sitemaps, you can now easily add additional information about important images that you have on your website.

The good news is that you don’t need to create a new sitemap. Google now lets you just add information on images to existing sitemaps you use on your sites. To add images to your sitemaps, follow the instructions here. Or if you want a simpler method just check out the statement below and replace information that are appropriate to your sites.
