Default Optimizing images for Google my business

For those of you that are frequently uploading images to your Google business page, how exactly are you optimizing your images for SEO?
I change the title of the image and add alt text like "electrical vehicle charger installation" for example.


Am I doing this right? Are there any other forms to add to the image?

I wasn't aware of title or alt tags for My Business. Are you talking about when you post them on your website?

I have seen people say to turn on the EXIF data and set the geolocation of the image to somewhere in the town you are advertising to. But most of what I read say that's not a factor that would make any difference.

Sorry for the late reply Hack. Alt tags/alt attributes are really important for seo apparently. You can check your site here https://seositecheckup.com/tools/image-alt-test
I'm still searching for a way to add alt attributes to images via my andoid phone.
Im currently uploading to my PC to add them via Windows.

Yes, I see what you are saying now.

The SEO isn't for My Business, it is for Google itself.

The ALT tags go into the website, not the images. The link you posted shows the HTML that you would use on your website.

Who built your website? I would assume that the images already have ALT tags. If not, you can go and add them, but be careful not to mess anything up if you are not completely sure of the coding.

If you would like I can take a look at your site to see if the images are tagged.

I have used Legiit and Konkor.io for specialized services, some sellers do tagging and such.
