    Yes, graphics means any kind of graphical data, whether images, graphs, infographics, memes, pictographs, and so on. If you include them in your blogs or websites, you're providing viewers with visual interactivity. They're likely to interact more with your pages. They'll return for more if you include appropriate materials. And always be careful on the side of usage, never use too many images if the main focus of your pages is to provide useful information and not to provide visual interactions. Even when selling products or services, it becomes indispensable to use more of images and less of textual data. It's still better to balance it out just to be on the safe side, however.

    More images makes the blog more describing yet attractive too, so you can add more images on a blog to make it better. But you should maintain at least a count of words (1000 words) in the blogs.

    Images are too important for the blog. Text with images get more traffic as compared to the simple text. Readers find blog text with image more interesting and it also increases engagement on the blog. Hence to make the blog interesting and readable for the readers use images.

    Does that mean that more images are better?

    Images must be there on the blog but not more than 3-4. You can use infographics for better user engagement. Images must be relevant to the Blog content.

    These would only be used for regular blog post articles and not for selling products or services. I should then just use what I think looks good with my best judgement?

    What about having images with text in them. Like a title for the main image or something like that?

    The images with little text in it are fine. Sometimes images with little text on it are self-explanatory and direct users to read the full content. The main image helps the audience to tell them what exactly the post is about?. It helps you to get a relevant traffic.

    I feel a blog is about the words than pictures and so one picture per post is better. Too many pictures on a blog might seem attractive but it will attract children and people who don't like reading.

    So one picture per post on a blog is better because it shows formality and friendliness. :D

    I see how that may help to get people to read more now. I think that I will do this sometime. Thank you for your help.
    I had not thought about that before. I want them to read my posts because I always put much time into making them.

    You don't want to have too many images and not enough text but if you have a lot of text on your pages then adding more images can help visualize your content.

    If you don't have a lot of text in your pages then no more than 2 or 3 images should be good.

    I think I will try to use 3 images unless I have a long post and then I will add more if it looks appropriate.

    What's your blog all about if I may ask?

    Well, if you ask me I would like to see more pictures than reading, but you have to consider the loading time of it, probably make us of images which are not big but good in quality. Nowadays, people tend to be lazy in reading they always look into the pictures first and see if interests them. Maybe balance is the word for this balance the images as well as your content.

    It also depends on what your blog is about... So, if it's about Photography, Art, Cooking or Designs of course images are mostly needed for this kind of website.
