Choosing the right image for your blog post is important.
Because as much as you might not like the idea, your reader are after more than just your words.
As YouTube, Flickr, and any other number of video and image sites demonstrate, humans are visual animals. It’s not enough to simply tell a person something to get them engaged and make them remember what it was you said. You need to show them, and that’s where images come in.
Finding the Perfect Image
Finding an image to sit alongside your blog post is easy. Go to Google Image Search, tap in a keyword or two, save the image you like or just hotlink it, and you’re done, right?
The only thing you will have done there is almost guarantee that you’ll get your blog post all the wrong sort of publicity. Not only is taking someone else’s image akin to theft, it can cost you big time if the image you use is under copyright by a major image bank like Getty that is notorious for suing bloggers who copy and paste even a single image on their low-traffic blog.
So where should you turn to find the perfect image, then, if not the world’s most powerful search engine?
Relax: DOZ has you covered.
