Question: How would you optimize an image based website? Would each jpg need to have all the popular search terms?
Answer: Google can’t read images. So first of all, use the ALT attribute for your images everywhere. Beyond that you MUST use TEXT. Google is ultimately a textual search engine. So you have to create keyword heavy pages that have text.
One technique. Put your images ‘above’ the fold, and your keyword heavy text below the fold. Another: Create Google-friendly pages that pull traffic in, and have other image heavy pages for humans. The one gets the traffic to your site, the other gets them excited!
