    I typically use max-width for any background CSS driven images and I’ve usually added a class which handles the image sizing via max-width for each image driven by html. So, it is always the largest image possible being loaded and it shrinks when necessary. So for example . But the adaptive images concept is definitely something worth considering. I like the way it handles the whole process. Also, though I’ve known about image sitemaps, I’ve never implemented one so I’m going to take this as a push to get it done. Thanks for an enlightening article.

    You’d only include the larger, preferred version of any image in the sitemap. That’s a strong signal to Google that it’s the preferred version for indexing. It can act like a ‘soft’ canonical to help consolidate link value / solve indexing issues.

    I knew about the image sitemap tip, but had know idea about the discrepancy of image seo for responsive sites. Thanks for the heads up.

    On another note, I’m not sure if I should use Disqus for blog commenting on my site, does anyone have anything to say regarding whether this is good for SEO? I know that it’s in an iframe and I think it’s up to google whether they crawl an iFrame or not…any advice would be great.

    Thanks in Advance

    If you want the comment content to apply freshness to your page (the framing page) then it’s not a good choice. There was also an indexing bug for Google which is largely cleared up now.

    All that said, for convenience of commenting and adding an easy value add it’s a great system and the best of the non-do-it-yourself commenting systems out there. We use it at QueryClick as were not looking for add-on unique UGC or freshness signals.
