How I promote images in Google.

I'll share my own experience. I often
conduct experiments and try to make my images the top images in Google's search
results. During this time, I've experienced and learned a lot of interesting
features with regard to image promotion in Google Images. In this article, I
will reveal these secrets to you in addition to three tips on how to make your
images go viral.

1. Small images, also known as
"Avatars," should stand out whenever they receive more clicks.

2. Full-size images should be interesting
to visitors as this will encourage them to follow the link to the site.

3. It is important to update your site
regularly! Your site should be of immediate interest to visitors.

Google is smart and indexes the number of
pages viewed and the amount of time people spend on your site. If a visitor
leaves in less than 10 seconds (bounce), Google will think that your site is
not interesting. It will assume the linked image does not match the theme of
your site.

If visitors view a few pages for longer
amounts of time, your images will quickly reach the top 10 in search results.

The three tips stated below are more
important than the text around the pictures, ALT, keywords, etc. Here is an
example. Site is  newbielink: [nonactive]  and its theme is the restoration of old
photos. The phrase, "Montezuma's Daughter," is not in the keywords, text, etc.
The name of the file is "Montezuma's-Daughter. Jpg" and the title is
"Montezuma's Daughter."

Search for "Montezuma's Daughter," in
Google Images and you will see that the appears in the top 5 search results. newbielink:'s-Daughter.jpg [nonactive]

I did not promote this picture, but it is
seen at the top.

The image is beautiful and it leads to an
interesting site. "Montezuma's-Daughter. Jpg" put itself up to the top. It
surpassed other sites that also have the theme "Montezuma's-Daughter," etc. I
have many more examples.

Image Optimization Tips:

1. Name Your Images Descriptively.

To separate words in the file name, use a
dash (-) instead of an underscore (_). A poor example would be "DCM12678.jpg,"
and a good example would be "Old-Photo-Restoration .Jpg"

2. Add the ALT Tag

List your keyword or keywords separated by
commas. For example, after filling in the ALT tag, add: photo restoration,
repair of old images, online image recovery.

Do not stuff keywords; no more than 2-5
keywords is desirable

3. Add a Title Tag to the Image

In the Title tag for the image, you can add
the same keywords as in the ALT tag. If you're using a content management
system, ensure that there is such a field. In the c Panel of WordPress it is a
custom field.

4. Description of the Image

The description of an image influences the
range of images that appear in the image search. If you really want to get to
the top with an image on a specific keyword, you must not forget this important

5. Page Weight

The greater the page weight, the better the
picture. For example, if you want to promote topics for the keyword "ceilings,"
link the page to reputable sites. This is a big plus for images to get to the
top of the image searches.

6. Keep Images in the .jpg Format

A simple confirmation of this fact is to
enter a keyword search for images and then see what format the image is
displayed in.

7. Use Unique Images

is best to use a unique image.

Google can also see how often a certain image is being used on other websites, with or without a link because they are able to understand it's dimensions and alt text, so if you can get the same image on multiple websites it will appear as an "authority image" where it should rank more easily for it's alt text. Keep in mind if you have the same image on 100 websites, not all 100 will show in results just like regular SEO, but chances are your image, or maybe a few are towards the top for the alt text keywords you want to win.
