    I just found out today that an image from my website ranks number one for a keyword that has massive competition. Of course I know that it's not as good as ranking in the search results, but do image results hold any value?

    Cheers,

    James :)

    Anything holds value if it brings you targeted traffic.

    So look at this way, you are going to receive traffic from it.

    Yes, having an image appear in Google Images can bring in traffic, but it's really only useful when people search for images using that search query or if the images appear in the regular SERPs. There are other variables as well, such as whether or not people are just going to perform the search query to download your image, but just keep an eye of your analytics data to see how much extra traffic it brings in.

    Yes it will bring traffic but depends on the niche, for example if your niche is something like interior design then it will bring you loads of traffic.

    Better to have images ranking than not ;) how much traffic it would bring you I wouldn't have a clue, but it may be some!

    If you convert that image into a gif and post in on youtube with a clickable link it might show up in regular SERP and bring you good traffic.
