    anyone getting increased traffic with google images as the source?
    one of my hubs (about bald guys) that had been getting almost no traffic, had over 100 hits today with google images as the source, whats up with that?

    and I've noticed this with other hubs as well, not quite with those numbers

    All the pictures you use on your hubs end up in Google images, if someone clicks on those images you get the views.

        Do you have a Google Analytics account? It will tell you what keywords are driving traffic from all sources.

        Yup...when I was a blogger for Today.com I earned a lot of money from google images... of course...I never did get that money...but that is another story.

    putting keywords in your image filenames and alt text and captions are integral for on page optimization

    So how does it work if the images came from google in the first place? Do they go back in there with a new name? Is that why there are so many repeat images on Google Images? Or am I asking a really Duhh question here?

      No some people just search google for images Sue, so if you name all your hub images with a good title it can get people to your hub on an image search.

        Do you mean any good title or a title relating to the hub the images are in?

          Relating to the hub Sue, I always pick a good relating name to every pic, yes I know I am showing no hubs but on my main account it works well. Dont just save and post a pic, rename it with a relevant title, it does work.

            Well, I am definitely page optimization challenged (what a nice way of calling people ignorant) I never knew any of this s....
            Thanks. It means I'm going to have to rename and reload all the pictures on all my hubs.  I knew I should learn a bit more about this hubbing business before writing any more. Thanks again Redneckman!
