When publishing your Narrative post via Narrative's publishing service, it may not obvious how Google sees your post and how this affects your SEO.

The HTML for your post is presented via Javascript to show the Narrative post on your website.

Fortunately, when Google scrapes your website for SEO data it reads all HTML and Javascript on your website including the Narrative HTML.

This means that all your SEO data including the image keywords (titles and alt tags), body text and even the images themselves are seen by Google.

When somebody searches within Google image search, your images will display as usual and the location of the image will be represented as your website (not Narrative's server).
