I’ve run into a little problem here, and hope you can help me out with this.
I’ve been adviced to change name on all photos on my clients website to get a better SEO ranking. So I did. Then I uploaded the photos and replaced them. But when run the instaction on the site, the old photo file names are showing… with underscore and everything (Googe don’t like underscore on file names).
So, my question is… why don’t the file names on the photos change? What am I doing wrong? Or will the photo file names change over time?
Do you guys have any ideas on this, or on how I can fix it?
Thank you for helping me out, shokoaviv! I really appreciate it!
Unfortunately it’s didn’t help. So, once again, I deleted all images from Assets, and uploaded them again (with the right file name), made sure they where placed in the right place on the website, and published it… but still… when investigating the site, it shows all the old images file names.
Thank you so much for getting back to me with this.
As you probobly understand, this is something I don’t know nothing about… but, you are right. I did change the file name, but I guess I should have tried to change the URL path name to get a better ranking on Google SERPS.
But is there a way to do this?
And also… when Webflow automtaically add url path, why is it adding underscore, when google ‘hates’ underscore? Why don’t Webflow use filenames as url?
@miekwave, I’m confused now.
I used https://freeseoreport.com/
and I got this message: An underscore was found in an image filename. Should be fixed.
And it came up as a red warning. It also says that all images should have an Alt Tag with key words.
It’s getting way over my head now, so I guess I’ll just skip it all… unless you’ve got an easy way to explain to me how to fix this?
TLDR; optimize for Google Search Console, not other 3rd party services. Upload image files with image-description.png (ex. companyname-logo.png, companyname-logo-white.png, companyname-owner-portrait.png, product-name.png, productname-variant.png…) format to webflow.
