My shopify store sells digital goods - png images of cutout trees with transparent background.
I want to change the background of my Shopify store, but almost all the images are in jpg format. So, the way to do it will be changing them to PNG.
Is this a bad idea... will it affect SEO ?.... I mean... will it be bad for Google image search?
Thanks in advance
The file format won't affect SEO whatsoever. What might affect are the file names [so make sure you add relevant titles to your images before uploading them to your website] and alt tags, so remember about adding these as well.
Nick here from Shopify.
Just to follow on from Rockpapercopy's response above, while the file type won't affect your SEO, but more so the quality of the image if anything. What would affect your SEO more so is the name of your images and their description.
Don't hesitate to ask any other questions should you have any.
All the best, Nick
hey joao oliveira,
Choose the image extension as.PNG while saving the image for your Shopify store.
Replacing image is not a hard task. you can do it from the backend and replace all the images with the new one(.png).
