    Some results have images on the very top. Others have them somewhere in the middle.

    What are your thoughts on ranking for these keywords?

    It seems to me that we'd lose at least a quarter (estimate) of searchers going to the top images..

    I get a lot of action from google images. It's important to name your images keywords or keyword phrases for this to benefit you.

    I don't mean a "image search", I mean results served next to text results.

    Ex:

    "Shopping results for keyword"
    "Images for keyword"
    "Local business results for keyword near location"
