    Does image hotlinking help your rankings in Google?

    Yes it works! And it works very well,I must say!

    Some webmasters use a new search engine optimization practice to get high rankings on Google. They hotlink images from other web servers to rank highly in Google's image search results.

    How does this work?

    Google's image search doesn't just return web pages from where a picture originates. For example, the first result for "Darth Vader" returns a BlogSpot web page although the original image is stored on a .hu domain.

    Search for any term on Google Images and you'll always find web pages in the results that are just linking to an image from another website.

    Why does this help your rankings in the normal Google results?

    Google's new Universal Search system now returns images and movies at the top at the search results for some search terms. For example, if you search for "Darth Vader", image results will be the first results in the list.

    A click on these images redirects web surfers to the web page on which the image is displayed. If your website has a good ranking in Google Image search then these top rankings will also be displayed in Google's regular results for that search term.

    Should you use this new method to improve your search engine rankings?

    We do recommend this new method. This Method Works. We tried it with Our websites and this method works 100%.We Now get more Traffic to Our Websites

    Keep Me & Everyone posted on how this SEO Method is working,for Your Websites.

    Hotlinking images is a long term strategy for high rankings on Google. If you want even more great results, you should optimize your web pages so that they can be found for your keywords. Also make sure that the right pages link to your website.

    NOTE: So, Search Engines find your Website Quickly and Rank it,on the First Page of search results; You should also use the Image ALT Tags, and properly
    describe your Image. If it's a Darth Vader,image....put: Darth Vader ,in the
    Image ALT Tag.

    My Traffic & Alexa Traffic Rank Improved Drastically,for My Websites.

    On one of my sites I noticed recently that I was getting, daily, hundreds of image search hits on my site...

    when I investigated further, I also discovered that loads of other sites were hotlinking to my images and some of them were showing higher than me in google image results....

    Some things I did which put me above the hotlinkers....:D

    In addition to having a good keyword description in the alt tag, I also started linking to my own images using inline linking on relevant pages (just link to the image URL)....;) also listing the image URL on an html site map - with rich and varied keyword anchor text...;)

    If you do those 2 things, you should soon outrank the hotlinkers - unless they have very good google authority...
