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.
Ok, I'd be curious to know what keywords they are using
you know all kinds of good stuff
Wow I did not know that. I learn something new everyday!
putting keywords in your image filenames and alt text and captions are integral for on page optimization
yes, I've noticed that, no 100 clicks though.. !
good for you.
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!

Regarding the latest newsletter about incorrectly crediting images, is it suggested that we take down all images that are not copyrighted or cites "google images" or "microsoft images." Should we, who are guilty, expect a violation email soon? Or worse, get idled?

I'd like to know if the main image you use on your hubs affects either ranking or traffic. I know the thumbnail plays a huge role in YouTube videos but what about our hubs? Does it matter?

Over the past two+ years I’ve really put a lot of effort into learning SEO and how to produce content that has some hope of success here on HubPages. It was hard work and frustrating at times, but it really paid off. So let me preface this by saying by no means am I dissatisfied with my...

A couple of weeks ago, I realized that I had not read the ToS about image use correctly and had to go back to all of my hubs and make sure the images were cited properly and were available through the creative commons. I see a lot of other hubbers that do not cite their images correctly and...
