Question: Question about the naming of the images: As one of the designer/programmer guys I name the images something odd with a number so none of the images will overwrite one another. So if I name an image properly, will it affect it negatively if it has a number at the end of it so they still won’t override each other in the image folder for the site? Such as electrical-contractor-01.jpg, electrical-contractor-02.jpg, or do you suggest something else?
Answer: Yes, use keyword heavy names for many of your images on your site. It’s a little thing, but it will help. For organization purposes, ideally use the ‘-‘ dash or hyphen, so call it flower-1.jpg or 2011-flower.jpg or something like that. The dash is a great way to have an easy organizational structure, but also embed some keywords in the file names, whether they are real files or images.
