are similar filenames (of images) in a row vulnerable for onpage penalties

    i fixed my onpage on most pages and most of them have recovered. it was hard to go through such long text.

    but there are things like images names where i have a slider of images and in code it looks exactly like that:

    <img src="watch-movie-free.jpg">
    <img src="watch-movie-free-today.jpg">
    <img src="watch-movie-free-500x300.jpg">
    <img src="watch-movie-free-no-survey-500x300.jpg">

    so basically theres no other words just keywords repeated in very small distance
    opinions? should i get rid of it?


    ps when i was making the website 3 months ago i did put kws as file names because was quite begginer and got this advice from some forum

    That might be okay, but if I were you I'd take the time to mix them up. Perhaps use more relevant search terms.

    Probably want to LSI things up a bit.

    <img src="watch-movie-free.jpg">
    <img src="movie-poster.jpg">
    <img src="at-the-cinema.jpg">
    <img src="latest-dvds.jpg">

    Always remember, Google is far smarter at figuring out LSI keywords these days. They can look at the word "cinema" and twin it with the keyword "watch movies online".

    IMHO is the only place you need your keywords to be exactly spot on is in the title. Everywhere else you can feel free to use LSI keywords.

    im not paranoid i know kw proximity is the thing, so i avoid having a kw in text just after an image that had dat kw in filename just one line before.

    I don't think such a penalty exists.

    besides Google isn't penalizing absurd match counts as far as I can tell from the data:

    Sorry, forgot to answer that bit lol!

    Personally I wouldn't do it, Google does read alt tags and takes them into account - although unsure if it reads filenames - I still wouldn't over optimize on them (And treat them exactly the same as content) though.
