    Whilst we all seem to be rather obsessed with getting to No.1 on Google, I can?t help feeling that some of us are overlooking the benefits of the ALT tag and Google images search results.
    In the last week or so I have been setting up a series of semi automated blogs but took time out to ensure that my images were correctly labelled, with my desired keywords, using the ALT tag.
    For any noobs, you simply insert the following into your image html code:
    alt=?best keyword?
    Despite only being on page 4 of Google for my keywords at the moment, I am already receiving organic Google traffic which equates to 13% of my total. HOWEVER, I am also receiving an additional 39% of my traffic from Google Images.
    Now whilst these visitors may clearly just be interested in the image, and not view the site proper, I have noticed that the number of Adsense clicks has increased.
    Updating the alt tags literally takes a matter of minutes and is well worth the investment in my opinion.
    For those who are wondering how my site got indexed so quickly, I would suggest submitting your site to Cubestat.
    Also, although my 1 Digg secured a slot on page 2/3 of Google sadly it didn?t drive any traffic. By far the best, to date, has been Stumble Upon although I?m not sure if this will be sustained in the long term.

    Do you honestly believe we aren't smart enough to see what you're doing? Stop copy/pasting articles and making threads outs of them.

    A simple Google search accomplishes so much. ;)

    Why do noobs continually think that we haven't seen everything before.
