    If a visitor download an image from my site using Google image, but if he does not visits my site can it increase the bounce rate?

    Does Google count him as a visitor which is good for Adsense?

    Any suggestion to make them visit my site? How about Google iframe breaker?

    I think it might affect the bounce rate but don't know for sure. When you open up a google image, it loads up the page in the background so it might count as a visit in analytics. Would have to test this though. Would be an interesting question for Google though

    This is useful to actually land the visitor to your page itself and lower the bounce rate

    I don't think it would count for bounce rate but for sure will push your site in image searches to the top the more times people search for that term.

    Use this script in your header tag to prevent Google from keeping your visitor from seeing your site:

    Code:
    <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">if (top.location != self.location) 
    top.location.replace(self.location);
    </script>
    
    I don't remember where I got it from, but if I do I'll post credit to the source.
