    One of my sites gets 90% of its traffic via G image searches. Than it completely vanishes for several weeks; than it is back (the site is three years old, established at PR3 and is growing slowly but steadily, ergo "normal" dancing should not be an issue) etc., so I have no idea what to expect on any given day.

    Does anyone know if G tweaks its image searches as well?

    Yes they do, but there is no way to know how they do it. All my traffic came from images

    I get a lot of traffic from image searches.. Great source of traffic but yeah the algo is a lot different. Make sure you tag your photos with shitloads of keywords. my photos descriptions are always at least 20 characters long.

    I had the same issue and when i checked my pictures where no where to be found, then later on they returned to the orginal position.

    I also know that i have pictures in high places (shows on searches) but they could get just views and not clicks for a long time

    I had months of good traffic on one of my EMD's from google images. It tanked with the site when it got the EMD slap and is yet to return.

    it's notoriously non-converting traffic though i think. I mean you still always want a higher absolute traffic number :p but maybe it's not worth investing an excessive amount into.
