    Hi!
    I was wondering what the best way to optimize pictures on Flickr, Pinterest, Google Places and other such sites is to generate the best local SEO results. Should I include the address and URL in a few descriptions or all of the descriptions? What should I title the pictures? What about tags? I'm sorry if this is a stupid question :( I'm new to the world of Local SEO!
    Thank you!

    Great question infoagent123,

    Yes make sure you fill out information for tags, descriptions and captions as well as associating images with locations. Use localized keywords in these areas. You can also create an image sitemap and submit it to search engines which will help images rank better.

    Here is a good article on the subject,

    Hope that helps,

    Title name it with the keyword you are trying to rank for.
    Use some relevant tags for your topic, don't use the same tags and the same description at all of the sharing sites.
