Learning about SEO…

I was looking at our site statistics on Google Analytics, and I spotted that the page which comes second in the list of top landing pages is http://www.4csys.com/project_manager.htm – not the home page, or one of the ones referenced from our AdWords ads. So how come?

Turns out it’s a graphic that’s been indexed! If you Google “gantt chart”, 4 pictures are shown and the second one links to that page on our website. If you do the same thing on Google Images, it’s picture number 3. Search on “critical path” on Google Images and our picture is number 4.

The moral of this is: make sure you have keyword-rich “<alt>” tags on your pictures!
