SEO for pictures?

Postby sanjeewa_daniel » Mon Jun 22, 2009 6:43 am

While everyone is clamouring to be best ranked for sites, what about pictures? Most SERPS have several filter options like blogs, pictures, news etc. And they all link somewhere.

What do you think of targeting picture rankings? Let's say the first page for "dogs" has 10 of your pictures, going back to your site, would that be equal to being ranked #1 for "dogs" for sites?

I'm sure it would be helpful, but I'm not sure it would have the same traffic driving effects.

Ranking high in the picture searches... hmmm, I wonder how many image searches are there compared to text searches. Possibly relevant to 'fan/idol' sites, **** sites, image heavy sites, galleries, online comics, etc.

Hey, what's the alorithm from image searches?

Use alt tags and used K.W. in image name.
