An ImageQuery SEO Bonanza!

Course Description

Today, we’re going to create something useful for anyone juggling digital content: a Griptape workflow that processes a directory full of images, and outputs a text file for each. These aren't just any text files—they're packed with things like SEO descriptions, keywords, alt-text, captions, and even a HTML snippet. If you don’t know what any of that means – that’s totally fine, I might’ve had to research some terms myself.

By the end of this course, you'll be able to easily and quickly generate cards like these, and a bunch of helpful tags, keywords, and more.

What is SEO?

First, let’s talk about SEO, which stands for Search Engine Optimization. Don’t get this confused with the Spaghetti Enthusiast Organization. That route will lead to very different pasta-bilities. The real SEO is the art of tweaking your content so that it’s more understandable and attractive to search engines like Google. Why is this important? Well, good SEO can make the difference between your content remaining unseen and it reaching the wide audience it deserves.

Using an LLM

By using an LLM, or Large Language Model, to automate this, we're not just saving heaps of time; we're also harnessing sophisticated AI to generate nuanced and effective text that can boost your search rankings. The file bellow is an example of the type of data you'll be able to generate automatically, simply by asking your script to evaluate an image.

        <div class="card-body">
            <h5 class="card-title fw-light fs-5">Nostalgic Beach Scene</h5>
            <p class="card-subtitle fw-light text-body-secondary opacity-75">A nostalgic day at the beach with friends and family.</p>
