SEO: Linked 'File' Images & Thumbnails (How-To?)

Hi,

We are ez-poxy.myshopify.com

We are working on our gallery of images for our products and decided to use 'Shogun' page builder to do it.

Some of the images we inserted into the gallery, are smaller thumbnails to the actual images that are uploaded to Shopify 'Files'.

Is it SEO friendly if thumbnails and full images uploaded to Shopify that thumbnails are linked to, for a full page open-up,  are same files with same {file names} and {alt tags}?

 

Looking forward to hear from anyone on such matter,

Thank you,

Andrei

Hello Jason,

Keegan here from the Shopify Guru team.

To the best of my knowledge, if it's the same image used a couple times across the site, using the same alt tags wouldn't do too much harm.

However if it's the same photo, resized and uploaded multiple times with the same alt tags Google may see this as duplicated content and may not list some of them across the images portion of their results.

Hopefully this helps, thanks for your post :)

Hi Keegan,

Thank you for your reply. Some images and thumbnails and exactly same and others are resized to full size and thumbnail size... but no image repeats more than 2 times. 

Does that fit into the safe zone?

Thanks,

Andrei
