    Well guys dont know if anybody has noticed this but, the google image search engine gives automatic backlinks once it has indexed the picture, now before you ask, all you have to do is upload the pictures to your website directory, wait for them to be picked up by google, then A you get free links , and B you get some trafic
    Code:

    you can also use the Flickr method discussed in the forum to get some more extra whitehat links

    I've used this technique for a number of years for legitimate backlinking, however, I don't do anything blackhat with it, as it will get you banned in a heartbeat, as google scans their images very highly.

    glad you agree with the post, i am sure some people will now see the benefit of this with a nicely crafted adsense or other site, but dont forgot to give your image a name, things like 001 002 etc will be a little useless give them good names like Ipod , ps3 etc things people search for , hope this is clear

    does anyone know a reliable way to add pics to google images beside turning it on in webmaster tools and waiting for a crawl?

    I'll spill it. Here is the method I've used since I discovered google's seperate image engine in 2003.

    Create image pages related to your site's topic/niche.

    Create relevant alt links and names to the images for the niche.

    ONLY link these image pages to each other, example: image_page1, image_page2, etc. Then, link them to you XML, non-user access sitemap.

    This will generate killer links. Do NOT stuff these, as you will be banned in a heart beat. Use them ONLY for linking in this method. If you stuff, you will ruin it for everyone, as Google will ban the technique like everything else and it is copletely legal. Now, for those of you that do love to stuff...this doesn't prevent you from using this technique to boost your stuffed domains rank through the roof.

    As those of you that know me from other posts, I don't do that...it's not my thing. More money for you guys until you get caught.

    FYI- Google manually monitors their images due to the issue of cookiestuffing, link stuffing and image stuffing, with a staff of real people, checking those images one by one, so if you want to expose your sites, which they don't check that way yet, it would be wise to head my warning on not doing it in these image pages.

    Enjoy!

    Can you name your source on this information? I find it hard to believe that they are manually checking each image page, that would take a lot of man hours.

    Aftershock, your post seems good, but you don't describe it well enough to understand. Can you explain it a bit more?

    It's not that LITERAL, man. IF you stuff an image and it shows up in their image engine, they check the source page in a manual que. That doesn't mean that they go through each page manually...it has to show something that is suspect.

    The thing is that in the google image engine, the descriptions of the images are given, which is taken from the image itself, which will openly give you away.

    Take it or leave it. This came from my direct research on using this linking technique and having a couple of my images come up in question from google support due to being too long, having too many keywords or whatever the reason at the time was...I was testing everything short of cookiestuffing itself.

    Hope that clearifies it for you.

    So, by your logic it's not safe to image stuff at all. I'd have to disagree, I've image stuffed for quite a while and have never had any issues with the big g.

    Sure...

    $ Build a series of image pages from basic html templates.

    $ Just post the images like a gallery page, simple images, nothing fancy.

    $ Add your alt tags with a related statement to each image, it's name " dog training fetch " , " walking the dog " ...relevant phrasing based on your keywords.

    $ Add your site's standard metags in the code for the pages.

    $ Link multiple image pages by simple page numbers at the top and bottom of your pages for the users or moderators that need to review them can find them easily.

    $ Link the first page in the series to your site maps so that they can be found again easily, possibly even posting a notice on the top or bottom of your image pages, as to how a user returning to your site may find them again...(preferably having them bookmark your page ).


    Let me know if you need more detail than that. I'm trying to keep this one of my shorter posts...heh.

    Just telling you what I've personally experienced. I can't go by anything other than that. I've seen what google claims to do via the couple of mishaps in those trials and I'm not interested in pressing that issue.

    I'm glad it works for you and completely respect your choice to do so. It just isn't for me and this is a dead giveaway of the google mods to find what you are doing. Best of luck with it for as long as it lasts you, sincerely.

    And just to get clear on that, I didn't say it is not safe to stuff at all...but to stuff at all, " using this method "...

    You see, i run for example a body art website targeting some keywords which in review style have a small paragraph with two images and then a list of clickbank products.

    My alt tags are all cool and i've got the advanced option selected in webmaster tools.

    I'm wondering how i can adapt this to those images some how or use what you're saying.

    Can i use these current images for this? Are you saying i create brand new pages as normal with keyword targeted meta tags as usual and just place a bunch of related images like a kind of gallery on the page. Then like usual add keyword alt tags.

    Tell me if i'm right up to now.

    Now the second bit sounds trickier. Link multiple pages by simple page number (i'm gathering you mean << 1,2,3,4,5,6 >>?

    So that means i create a bunch of pages full of images and link them 123456 at the top and bottom for people to go through if they need to?

    Now i link PAGE1 to my sitemap? Why's that? i use a html sitemap generated by xml-sitemaps.com

    ---------------

    I think my problem was i was getting a bit mixed up thinking this was an advanced technique and didn't quite "get it".

    You're basically saying create gallery pages with good meta/alt tags so people can find your image in google images and gain traffic yes?

    Where do they backlinks come in? Why link to sitemap and not just your websites index?

    Sorry for the long post dude, i really appreciate your time, i'm not a dummy, just getting it correct. So many techniques on BHW which are hard to grasp if you don't "get it" first time round.

    Sure, you just use the same images you already have.

    Yep, numbering them is so that if they show up in the searches under google images engine, they are easily accessed.

    As for the sitemap, this doesn't have to be done manually but make sure that you have the pages posted somewhere, as without them being posted into the navigation menu, which seems to make them less effective for some reason...I always make sure they are listed in the sitemap...

    However, in addition to that, I always use two sitemaps for my site...one traditional linking map for the users and then an advanced XML encryption map for the engines.

    This makes it easier in regards to those issues.

    I am currently working on a clients website in which he has a gallery to show off his work. The trick is to name the picture file the search term you want as well as have the alt tags in place.

    I have my clients pictures #1 to #3 on a majority of his pictures and I continue to tweak them little by little. A lot of his traffic comes from google images.
