Ranking for Google Image Searches

Sep 27, 2007 - 8:20 am 6 by

How does one rank in the Google Image Search Engine? A Cre8asite Forums member asks this question and a bunch of good advice is dispensed.

For one, filename, alt text, and surrounding text is important.

EGOL says that while on-page elements are important, rankings are also driven by searcher interest in the image. The more times it's accessed for a particular search phrase, the more likely it is relevant for the search.

The Google Webmaster Central blog shares some useful tips: don't put the bulk of your text in images, take advantage of ALT tags (but don't overload it), and look at the image-to-text ratio on your page.
