    my hubs started to pick u traffic from images.google.com a week ago and iam getting daily 300-400 pageviews from the image search engine.but the bad news is that none of the traffic impressions generated even a single google adsense page impression and earned me zero cents  from this traffic.So, i just wanted to know are there any hubbers here getting images.google.com traffic and earning from that traffic too..any body please respond if the case applies to you or if you know about it much better..

    i asked this same question in other thread too (http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/4881) but no one replied, so i created a new thread here hoping for other hubbers to respond even in this thread...

    I have had about twenty google image views that just started in the last few days.  I have heard that google image searchers are not likely to click on ads.  They say the google search engine traffic is more likely to do that.

    its not that they dont click on ads, whats happening in images.google.com traffic is that we dont see ads on our hubs while viewing ur related image containing hub in google image frame..

    you can observe that too by clicking this link which gives all images from hubpages listed in google images and when you follow any picture you see no ads at all in any of the hubs all over hubpages.But this works fine with other sites showing google ads even in image frame...

    Link is http://images.google.com/images?gbv=2&a … rch+Images

    You can see the ads if you click on the link that asks if you want to see the image at its original site.  But some people may not do that.

    Yes I've started getting google Images search traffic recently too. 

    Interesting that most of the HubPages images from the link are of beautiful women (but suitably covered - no porn on HubPages!)

      ravado, the link i provided before shows all of hubpages images,if you want to see images only realted to a particular keyword like hairstyle,fashion etc. just type in the word in the search box with a space after the "site:z.hubpages.com",you can see images related to only hairstyles from hubpages in this link

      http://images.google.com/images?gbv=2&a … rch+Images

      if you search for the similar keyword in google images any site other than hubpages is showing google ads when u click the image,but why can't we see them in hubpages its very sad to earn nothing from 100's of pageviews from images.google.com

    if you see my traffic sources page i am getting daily 500-600 pageviews from images.google.com which is all converting to really zero cents of income for me and both hubpages too.

    If it's any consolation, google image click values are probably amongst the worst value of all clicks. So, lets go with 4 cents a click. Your share of the impressions is 60%. Lets say, over the next year, you get 10,000 page views through google image search and a CTR of 10% (Unlikely I think in your case) That equals 1,000 clicks. Which equals $40.

    You get 60% of that which is $24.

    $2 a month. It will take you more than 4 years to reach google's minimum payout, by which time, taking inflation into account, that $24 will be worth less than $16. big_smile

    Personally, I would relax about the whole thing. big_smile
