How to choose the right images to illustrate your articles

Have you ever clicked on a URL and stumbled upon an article that had absolutely nothing to do with the thumbnail? Rest assured. You're not alone...On the promotional clip, you've seen a beautiful young woman in a wedding outfit and suddenly you're reading tips on how to choose an original Halloween costume for your cat... How did you feel? Surely, you were alternating between disillusionment and mad rage. Don't put your readers through the same thing.

Even if you don't mean to, you're capable of inflicting this terrible pain... If you want your photos to perfectly illustrate your texts, follow these few tips to the letter.

Stay focused on the subjectNot every

occasion lends itself to the use of pictures of cats under the hood ... The same goes for cute puppies or plush pandas. Before you use a photo, ask yourself: Does it fit the theme of the article?You wouldn't walk into a store with baby clothes in the window if you're looking for a new smartphone.

Similarly, do you really believe that an Internet user who feels betrayed will bother to read your paper? By choosing visuals that have nothing to do with your blog, you lose every time. People who are really likely to be interested in your articles will not click on the link. To find a consistent image, go to a free image bank and enter the keywords of your article in the search bar. As if by magic, you'll have at your disposal a plethora of visuals that can represent the full depth of your texts.

We bet that this strategy will win you subscribers?

Quality images or nothingPixabay

, unsplash or pexels are some of the image banks where you can download HD images for free. What excuses do you have for inserting pixel clusters on your website? Why do you do this? Mobile and fixed cameras are becoming more and more powerful. Nowadays, Internet users are used to a certain visual quality. There was a time when images cut into blocks were the norm.

Fortunately, that era is over. For a long time, it was said that amateur bloggers could afford such overflows... Not at all. It's not a question of whether or not your website makes you money.

The problem is quite different... Professional or amateur, if you write, it's good to be read. The ones who matter are your readers. The next time you want to insert a pixelated image in one of your articles, ask yourself what you would have thought if you had seen it on someone else's site.

Sometimes you have to change your skin to realize the magnitude of a situation....
