In addition to alt tags, there are a number of different tactics you can employ to boost your content’s visibility in Google Images, from lean-and-mean image file formats to specific sitemaps and compression tools.

The payoff is huge: Done right, website image SEO not only boosts Google image search ranking but also increases your site’s entire web traffic. With the advent of Google’s CoreWeb Vitals, ensuring quick load times of key visuals directly impacts overall search ranking.

Also, remember that large images are the biggest culprits behind long (mobile) load times, and every extra millisecond means losing customers!
