    I have wordpress sites and use the usual images. Lately I want to add lightbox effect to my images, I have some...

    Found this wordpress.org/plugins/responsive-lightbox/ and I like it. On images adds a rel= "lightbox-0"

    My question is :

    - will lightbox affect indexing in google images ?
    - will rank in google images be affected, in good or worse ?

    - to use or not to use lightboxes ?

    - any other better solution than a lightbox ? for my images to be prettier, but to rank high... ?

    So : Images with Lightbox effect are good for SEO or not ?

    i don't think there is any impact if you use it or not.. it is simply a javascript library..

    Take a page out of the Google book if you don't want to believe anyone else, they use javascript all the time on their homepage when they implement a cool new logo or something like that.
