Anyone getting image traffic from Google?

    Although i get web traffic from Google , an not getting traffic from images in any of my hubs. I would like to know if anyone is getting traffic from images.

    thank you in advance for answering.

    I used to get some image traffic and it was building.  That is a year or so ago.

    Google did two things to shaft me.

    They penalised HubPages a bit more so traffic generally went down.  They changed their image display so it gave less incentive for the user to click through and visit the owner / publisher of the image.

    Here is what I think about Google.

    They feed off other people's content.  In this case pictures.  They scrape my pictures without permission and supply them through their own software.  Google Images it is called.  Except not one single solitary picture in there was created by Google.  They are all being curated, borrowed, loaned by this privacy invading tax evading monopoly.

    A corporation that makes a living from other people's content. Like the lowest cheapest nastiest dirtiest scammer on the web.

      I normally say the sensible business-like thing about google, since I make money through them, but I am starting to loathe the very sight of the logo.

      I especially hate the way they are trying to force everyone into Google plus, stripping away even the illusion of online privacy.

      Before anyone tells me that you can fake an identity with Google plus and go on to spam/link at will, I would just like to point out that I really cannot be bothered.

        Will, how is Google plus stripping away privacy?  You share what you want to share, with whom you want to share it.  What am I missing?  I'm not suggesting that one should post secret, confidential information in any social network - but that's not what they're for anyway.

          If you use a gmail account that data is shared with the NSA and GCHQ - it is mined and sold to corporations - and it is used by Google for various purposes.

          So using gmail for personal, business - indeed anything other than messing about - is a risk.

          The same thing applies to every one of Google's other offerings.  Which maps have you looked at, what's on your Android phone - it goes on forever.

          Yes, you shouldn't share personal or private information.  Neither should you consume, research, bank or socialise on the internet unless you are happy that the NSA and GCHQ - aided by Google, Facebook and basically everyone - will use and store your every detail.

          I just noticed that one of the founders of YouTube, Jawed Karim, had this to say:

          why the f**k do i need a google+ account to comment on a video?

          You also need google plus to comment on google play.

          Soon, you will probably be denied traffic if you are a writer and don't want to participate in Google's universe on Google's exacting terms.

          And what has this to do with privacy? They want your face on your comments, they read your emails (only to give you better ads of course, oh and the NSA thing) they want your real name and your location.

          What is left to give them?

            It seems the first time you go on any site and give them info, you're pretty much screwed. I hate that it's near Christmas, and if I shop online, which I will, the things I shopped for will come up in images on the ads. I share the computer with other family members.

              I just discovered a great extension for Chrome called Disconnect.me

              It makes your searches anonymous and stops websites from collecting your data.

              I like it.

            It's happening already, Will - if you don't have Google+ authorship on your blogs, they get less traffic. 

            I don't write under my own name so that's a big problem for me.  I guess I could create a fake profile for my pen name, but why should I be forced into doing something which breaks their TOS?

      On your own websites, you can block your images from Google Image Search by using these directions:

    How would I find out if I am getting any traffic from Google images?

    you can use Google analytics in your hubs to track traffic sources and image traffic.

      I have noticed my traffic has begun to improve in November. If it keeps up as it is going, I will be making a payout again. Yay!

    With their new Algorithm update, Google has promoted Hubpages in their search results for providing unique and spam free contents.
