    Okay, my first video didn't get off to a good start due to the topic I picked. Therefore, I've picked a more "friendly" topic here which is image backlinks / image optimization.

    This time the video is only 10 minutes so no need to spend 45 minutes watching the video. I have also significantly improved the mic quality, and also removed all background noise so it should be more pleasing to hear and watch.

    What I go through:


    1. Introduction on Image Backlinks.
    2. Image Backlinks in relation to SEO.
    3. Different optimization tips for images.
    4. File name.
    5. Alt text.
    6. Captions.
    7. XML sitemaps.
    8. Relevant images.
    9. Finding images.
    10. File size.
    11. Anchor text.
    12. Places to post.
    13. Summary.

    Hey mate! Yes, it works pretty well, still working with the editor to get the best output. I went for the Samson.

    Thanks mate - and yes Powerpoint.

    Thanks Kimi, coming from you - that feels good ;)

    I went through the basics as I'm also still trying out image links. I've been using them for the last 2 months and the results have been surprising. I wasn't expecting THIS much results but yeah, it does work quite well. I look forward to any more suggestions you have and if you do please do post here. Again, I'm still learning so all feedback and comments are appreciated.

    Yeah you can get a shit ton of traffic from image.. maybe even help get your site crawled more often. But monetize images = damn near impossible. People want to see pretty pictures.

    Yeah, I am yet to try monetizing it properly but it does look like a tough job.

    Thanks guys. I hope you guys learn something from the video! This one again took me 4 hours in setting up and over 3 hours in editing and exporting (mainly due to my crappy ICT skills)

    Thanks =)

    Let's keep it friendly shall we ;) Scottish people are cool! But I prefer London accents. But after moving to Scotland, there is quite a big difference. More peaceful where I am here, and in a way it has its positives over London, although I still think London is the best city in the world.

    Thanks for the share. I always forget to add captions to my images, but makes sense to add them now. Good stuff
