    http://vespawoolf.hubpages.com/hub/Ital … h-Tomatoes is now ranking on the first page of some Google searches, but no photo appears. Many of my other hubs do appear with the photo...what can I do to fix this problem? It definitely boosts traffic when a photo can be seen on the Google search.

      Sometimes it relates to how large the images are.
      Do you have the Google search that you are doing so we can see the results to which you are referring?

        That's interesting. Here's the google search: https://www.google.com/#hl=en&sclie … p;bih=618. What do you think?

          I see what you are talking about, but the only results that have images seem to be the results from Food.com.

          It may be related to how we are passing data to Google.
          Did you see images in results from Google for recipes in the past?

            If you check this link, you'll see that my salsa hub displays the photo on google search: https://www.google.com/#hl=en&sugex … p;bih=618.
            I really appreciate your help.

                  Okay.  I got tracked down some info for you.
                  We are sending the image data to Google, they are just choosing not to display it.

                  You can see by checking the preview using this URL.

                  Here is one for each of the Hubs in the search results.

                  http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/ … lsa-Recipe

                  http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/ … h-Tomatoes

                  If you look at the "Google Search Preview" section at the bottom for both, you can see the images.

                    Very interesting...it's all up to Google. I won't worry then since I can't do anything about it. Thank you for looking into it!

                    I've just changed the title and summary to make it more attractive. We'll see what happens!
