    Hi,

    I was sitting and trying to see if it is possible to redirect google image traffic to my site. I know it was possible a year and a half ago, but the methods I found do not work any longer. Is it still possible? If yes, is it against google policies.

    he means, if somebody clicks on visit page links, it will get redirected....for this purpose u will need to use 302 redirection....because most of the time it doesnt change indexed links

    It should still be possible because sometimes when I click an image in Google image search, instead of seeing the image, Im redirected to a website.

    Technically should be easily doable, you can even redirect url based on user agent, when requested by other than google bot.

    Before the new Google image viewer people used a frame breaker to redirect the user to their site.
    Now I think user agent rules would be the best approach.

    It's also possible to add a watermark to all hotlinked images, so if your image would be copied from google your logo would be in it.
