    No, as long as it satisfies "searcher's intent". It is okay!

    if those images don't serve any purpose then don't risk it. Google expects content on content sites. Sure images are content too but it all depends on what your website is about. If you are planning to post good but scraped content through images then don't do it (don't have personal experience).

    I dont think it will HURT your seo, because it won't derank you. But thats what you should avoid. Contextual inner pages work better than images.

    No it won't hurt if you're using relevant images with good titles and tags on content pages that are relevant and unique.

    You are right...?

    If it serves a purpose then its fine otherwise come up with useful content.

    More important question: What is the purpose of the images?

    If this is a plan to create 600 image pages in a shotgun-style type of way (just throw it out and see what hits/sticks), the bigger issue can then be managing the content at that scale. I did a test/case study a while ago posting:
    • ~1,000 articles
    • 500 to 1,500 words each
    • Absolute cheapest possible per-word writers ( $0.50 to $1.00 per 100 words)
    • each targeting super super low competition keywords.
    Got decent results and plenty of the pages rank. However, many of them are mostly pointless and don't drive sales and/or traffic. Just make it harder to manage the site. If you do this, you might want to prune/remove pages/images that aren't getting results after a month or two.
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    It won't hurt your existing articles but it probably won't do anything valuable

    There's no reason to post content if it's not going to rank for a keyword, be promoted on a high traffic channel, or help inform your customer of your sales process. There's a reason why Brian from Backlinko will go to his clients and delete/combine half their blog...

    Producing great content for visitors, that is relevant, is the best way to boost SEO.

    Don't just fire stuff on a page.

    If your unsure about it, maybe thats a sign.
