    I thought it would be easy but for some reason I can't find an easy way to see how I'm ranking for images in Google image search, or how much traffic I'm getting to images. I look for software and poked around Google Analytics but am coming up short.

    Any of you know how to track your Google image traffic?

    Adrian,

    If you are using Google Analytics, you could set up a goal to track when someone views the image URL. For instance if your image is located at example.com/folder/image.jpg, you could set up a goal to register in analytics by placing the request URI (/image.jpg) as the URL destination.

    Here is how you set up a goal in analytics,

    Hope that does it for you,

    Cool thanks for both of those tips, I can use them.
    I also found that I could go to Traffic Sources > All Traffic > and then type 'image' into the search box.. I then see stats from all images.domain.com URL's, which 99% of the time is images.google.com.
