Google Image Traffic DropAbout a month ago, we asked our readers if they are or plan on blocking Google Images after they noticed a huge drop in traffic since the new image search design launched.

The results are now in and while 37% said they will not block Google from indexing and ranking their images, 35% said they will or have blocked Google Images. Currently 28% are not sure what they should do in this situation, which likely means they will just keep the status queue. Here are the poll results:

  • 11% already blocked Google Images
  • 24% will soon block Google Images
  • 27% will not block Google images
  • 28% are not sure if they will or will not block Google Images

Here is the pie chart:
