I was checkin out some of my traffic today and found one of my hubs had traffic from a site I didn't know. I went to have a look around and found the image I used on my hub linked on their site, the image linked to my article so I assume if their traffic wanted to click on the image it would take em to me. I am wondering if this is going to be a back link google would recognize as such?
That is a good question, but I can't provide an answer. I am looking forward to a response, however.
Google does recognize image links as back links, but there are a lot of potential subtleties to how the image link is implemented that determine how much weight Google gives the link.
Does the image belong to you, Kirsten? You could email the site, thank them for using the image and ask them to give you a hyperlink credit.
