How to Change the Image That Shows Up When You Link Your Website to Your WordPress Blog
It is not unusual for webmasters to want to link their online stores to their blog. After all, a blog can be a very useful tool in marketing and SEO (search engine optimization). Having a blog can help to establish credibility with potential customers.
If you’re feeling a little over-whelmed by the thought of setting up a blog, you’re in luck because you can use a service such as Shopify that makes setting up a blog extremely easy. Another great thing about Shopify is that it gives you a domain name and hosting for free (as long as you meet the required terms). When you sign up for a Shopify account, you’ll see the option to link your store to a blog (if you choose to do this, you will need to set up a Shopify store first).
In this article, we’ll tell you about how to change the image that shows up when you link your website to your WordPress blog. In particular, we’ll focus on the case of online stores that sell clothing and accessories. After you’ve read this article, you’ll know what image to use when linking your website to your blog and setting up an online store that sells clothing and accessories.
Find The Perfect Stock Photo For Your Blog Post
If you’re finding it a chore to find the perfect stock photo for your blog post, you’re in luck because we’ve got you covered on this front. To begin with, you should check out the Premium section of Stock Photos Bank because this is where most of the high-quality stock photos can be found. You’ll also need to ensure that the photo you choose fits the blog post you’re creating because, typically, the images on the site will be larger than the ones you see on social media channels such as Instagram.
There are four things you should keep in mind when choosing a stock photo for your blog post: quality, size, relevance, and uniqueness. With the first two factors, quality and size, you need to focus on is the quality of the image and whether or not it’s a large enough file to fit your blog post’s needs. Relevance focuses on the relevance of the image to what you’re writing about and whether or not it is relevant to your audience. Finally, uniqueness focuses on the fact that the photo you choose must be different from any other photo used in similar blog posts. That way, when people click on the link to your blog post, they’ll know precisely what they’re getting into.
Find The Perfect Icon For Your Blog Post
An icon is an image that indicates something about a website (usually a brand’s symbol or design) that is used to promote the site in some way. The term originates from web design and it literally means “small picture that represents a website”.
As the name suggests, an icon is usually used to give additional visual cues about the content on a site. For example, if you’re writing a blog post on health related issues and you want to add a little more visual interest, you could use an icon that has a medical theme (e.g., a doctor, hospital, or drug store logo).
Since icons can be quite small, you need to make sure that you choose a high-quality one otherwise, the text on your blog post may not be readable due to the low contrast ratio. Also, make sure you’re not using any icons that are already copyrighted property of other companies (e.g., Apple or Microsoft).
Use The Right Click To Open Up A New Tab (Or Window)
One of the most useful features of a modern day browser is the ability to open multiple tabs/windows (depending on the browser you use). While this may be convenient for webmasters, it can be a pain in the butt for people who want to visit various websites for different purposes. This is why it’s usually a good idea to use the right click to open up a new tab (or window).
If you click on an article on social media (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram), you’ll see a little tab/window at the top of the screen with the title of the article (assuming it’s not hidden). Normally, this will take you to the article, but if you click on it, you’ll see a new browser window/tab that will open up with the article (along with any embedded videos or images).
The right click to open up a new tab (or window) can be a life saver for people who want to read an article, but also want to look at some related content on the same page/tab (e.g., an online store’s products or a blog post’s social media posts). In these cases, having multiple tabs (or windows) would be quite helpful because you can keep the previous one open while you look at the new one (or vice versa).
Use Blogger’s “Edit Summary” To Summarize Your Blog Post
One of the things that makes writing a blog post difficult is trying to write a summary of it. Simply put, a summary is a brief description of the main points of a long (usually, but not always, blog) post. It helps to put the post into context and it allows the reader to get the most out of your article without having to read the whole thing.
Most blogs have an “Edit Summary” button located at the top right-hand corner of the blog post (under the “Publish” button). This is where you want to go when you’re writing your blog post (and you’ve finished entering it). Once you’re there, you can click on the “Edit Summary” button to see a list of your post’s main points. This is also the place where you can add a little more information about the topic if you want (e.g., a link to a related article).
Now, you may not want to add much information here because it makes your post quite wordy. However, it’s a good place to add a little more detail if you think it’ll be helpful to your audience (e.g., if you’re writing a health-related blog, you could add some notes about supplements that could help lower cholesterol).
Once you’ve written your blog post and summarized it, you should read it from top to bottom (as though you were reading a book) to ensure that all the information is there (and that you haven’t missed anything important). It may help to go through your post once or twice to ensure that all the important points are in there.
Don’t Forget About SEO When Choosing Your Blog’s Image
One of the most important things to consider when choosing a blog’s image is SEO (search engine optimization). If you’re not sure what SEO is, it’s essentially a set of techniques used to improve a website’s ranking in search engine results (e.g., Google, Bing, or Yandex).
To achieve the best possible SEO, it’s important to choose an image that is relevant to what you’re writing about and that can easily be associated with the topic (e.g., an SEO image would typically be a headshot or a face or a logo that is relevant to the topic of the blog post).
Also, make sure to research the various SEO tools and apps available if you want to keep track of your blog’s SEO performance. Some of the more popular ones are Google Analytics, MOZ Local, and Screaming Frog. In addition to these tools, you can use free resources like Google’s SEO Checker to test and analyze your site’s SEO performance.
Choose An Image That Is Easy To Recycle
Nowadays, many websites and blogs use online scrapbooks (like Scrippy) to store and display their content that they’ve created. You can use these scrapbooks to store and display your blog post’s images. This is usually a good option for bloggers because it’s easy to setup and it often comes with a free domain name and hosting.
However, you should choose an image that is easy to recycle in case you decide to remove the blog post or website at some point in the future. This image should not be watermarked and it should be in a standard format (e.g., JPG, PNG, or GIF). Also, make sure to keep any copyright information (e.g., website name or social media accounts) intact because you don’t want to end up in a situation where you’re not allowed to reproduce or use the image for any purpose.
