Images in Social Nuke

Let Others KnowShare on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Pin on Pinterest

Update October 2011: To make your life easier we now have an Image Spinner which will complete all the steps on this page for you automatically.
Update 2012: If you want to insert images REALLY easy then just right click inside your text within the Social Network nuke and select the ‘random Flikr image’ option.

I have helped a lot of people our with SEnuke over the years and one things which keep surprising me is how many people don’t add images to their social network nuke articles. Half of the point to me of social network nuke is creating pages which will rank on by themselves, this is perhaps because I joined SEnuke in 2009 when one of its selling points was ‘Dominate Page 1 of the SERPs”. Since then more and more people have taken to using SEnuke X the lazy way, just to create backlinks. There is nothing inherently wrong with this, I do it myself sometimes, but don’t ever dismiss the power of SEnuke pages to get ranked. I have made tens of thousands of dollars from people buying directly from my Nukes and never even seeing my money site.

So how do we add an image to social network nuke? Well the easiest way is to simply <right click> in the ‘Spinner Article’ section and select ‘Add Image’, then just put in the URL to the image and you are done. This is however very basic, and you can do so much more with images!

If you want a little more control then you can do so by using some very basic HTML, this may start to look complex but once you have been through it a few times you will get the hang of it. You can still start by adding the images using the <right click> method and then just change the code as you need.

Firstly you will need some images, technically you should either make these yourself or buy the rights to some images. However lets be honest here the first place you will go is Google images and grab whatever looks good!

Whenever I ‘borrow’ an image from Google I always edit it, resize it to whatever you need (a width of 350-450 pixels is generally enough for Nuke sites) and I like to hard-code my URL and keyword in to the image as well. Many years ago I read that Google can, and does, OCR images to read the content. I have no idea if this is true or not, but it does not hurt. When other people ‘borrow’ the image from you in the future your URL will still be there hard-coded for the world to see. I also rename the image so that it has the keyword I am targeting in its filename.

So continuing our example from the free PDF guide a quick trip to Google images and 2 minutes in photoshop gives us:

 

Trouble sending emails on holiday? Use GlobalSMTP the best AuthSMTP alternative.

As you can see its a nice image, it has our keyword (AuthSMTP alternative), it tells you the problem and the solution and lists our URL.

So how would we now use that in a Nuke? Well first you need to upload it somewhere, I suggest you upload it to your own URL, in fact use the image on your site if you can. In this example you can right click on the image and read its properties and you will see its location is:

http://www.zontseo.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/authsmtp_alternative.jpg

Which is a default location when uploading images in WordPress. To use that in social network nuke you simply need to call the image with the correct HTML, we would do this by inserting the following in the article text where we want the image:

<img src=”http://www.zontseo.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/authsmtp_alternative.jpg” />

We can further enhance this by adding text to the image when people hover over it:

<img alt=”GlobalSMTP is the best AuthSMTP alternative” src=”http://www.zontseo.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/authsmtp_alternative.jpg” />

Now if we have an image on the page we might just as well make it a clickable image, and for this we simply add a little more HTML:

<a href=”http://www.globalsmtp.info”><img alt=”GlobalSMTP is the best AuthSMTP alternative” src=”http://www.zontseo.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/authsmtp_alternative.jpg” /></a>

Do not forget the </a> after the image to end the link. The above will have a very ugly link border around it, most sites let you turn this off by adding ‘border=0’ :

<a href=”http://www.globalsmtp.info”><img border=”0″ alt=”GlobalSMTP is the best AuthSMTP alternative” src=”http://www.zontseo.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/authsmtp_alternative.jpg” /></a>

So now we have a nice clean image which links to our money site, we can add in the title tags to the link as well now because the image is a link:

<a href=”http://www.globalsmtp.info”><img border=”0″ alt=”GlobalSMTP is the best AuthSMTP alternative” title=”Get Global SMTP the best AuthSMTP alternative” src=”http://www.zontseo.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/authsmtp_alternative.jpg” /></a>

OK so this is probably starting to look complex but if you break it down its pretty simple!

<a href=”LinkToYouWebsite”><img border=”0″ alt=”DescribeTheImage” title=”WhatTheLinkIsAbout” src=”LinkToTheImage” /></a>

ALT Tag = Description of the Image itself

Title Tag = Description of what the image is linking to

So for an image you always use the ALT tag but only need to use the Title tag if the image is also a link

Now we can also control the image location either with <div align=”center”>LINK</div></p> or <p style=”text-align: center;”>LINK</p> will also work.

So to central align our image on its own line:

<div align=”center”><a href=”http://www.globalsmtp.info”><img border=”0″ alt=”GlobalSMTP is the best AuthSMTP alternative” title=”Get Global SMTP the best AuthSMTP alternative” src=”http://www.zontseo.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/authsmtp_alternative.jpg” /></a></div></p>

To make things really nice looking you can also left and right align within text:

align=”left”

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Integer nec odio. Praesent libero. Sed cursus ante dapibus diam. Sed nisi. Nulla quis sem at nibh elementum imperdiet. Duis sagittis ipsum. Praesent mauris. Fusce nec tellus sed augue semper porta. Mauris massa. Vestibulum lacinia arcu eget nulla. Class aptent taciti sociosqu ad litora torquent per conubia nostra, per inceptos himenaeos. Curabitur sodales ligula in libero. Sed dignissim lacinia nunc. Curabitur tortor. Pellentesque nibh. Aenean quam. In scelerisque sem at dolor. Maecenas mattis. Sed convallis tristique sem. Proin ut ligula vel nunc egestas porttitor. Morbi lectus risus, iaculis vel, suscipit quis, luctus non, massa. Fusce ac turpis quis ligula lacinia aliquet. Mauris ipsum. Nulla metus metus, ullamcorper vel, tincidunt sed, euismod in, nibh. Quisque volutpat condimentum velit. Class aptent taciti sociosqu ad litora torquent per conubia nostra, per inceptos himenaeos. Nam nec ante. Sed lacinia, urna non tincidunt mattis, tortor neque adipiscin.

align=”right”
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Integer nec odio. Praesent libero. Sed cursus ante dapibus diam. Sed nisi. Nulla quis sem at nibh elementum imperdiet. Duis sagittis ipsum. Praesent mauris. Fusce nec tellus sed augue semper porta. Mauris massa. Vestibulum lacinia arcu eget nulla. Class aptent taciti sociosqu ad litora torquent per conubia nostra, per inceptos himenaeos.

Nam nec ante. Sed lacinia, urna non tincidunt mattis, tortor neque adipiscin.

So to align our example image to the left of text:

<a href=”http://www.globalsmtp.info”><img border=”0″ alt=”GlobalSMTP is the best AuthSMTP alternative” title=”Get Global SMTP the best AuthSMTP alternative” src=”http://www.zontseo.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/authsmtp_alternative.jpg” align=”left” /></a></p>

I hope you have not runaway yet, as things start to get a little more interesting now. You see because SEnuke allows us to spin things we can also spin the images! For instance if you wanted the image to be aligned left on some pages and right on others you could use:

align={left|right}

You can also of course spin your titles and alt tags, spin the link so  it points to different pages and spin the image itself. Say we wanted to alternate between the two images we have on this page:

http://www.zontseo.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/1.gif

http://www.zontseo.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/authsmtp_alternative.jpg

Well then we would use the link:

http://www.zontseo.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/{authsmtp_alternative.jpg|1.gif}

Finally we may want it so that on some pages the image does not even show, for this we use a blank spin:

{|<a href=”http://www.globalsmtp.info”><img border=”0″ alt=”GlobalSMTP is the best AuthSMTP alternative” title=”Get Global SMTP the best AuthSMTP alternative” src=”http://www.zontseo.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/authsmtp_alternative.jpg” align=”left” /></a></p>}

I know all the above probably looks really confusing, if you want to do it the easy way get a HTML editor and produce the code in that and then <copy><paste> it in to SEnuke. The only thing you can’t do that way is the spinning part, as I have not found any HTML editor which understand spintax!
