    Is there any tricks to monetize traffic from google images?

    I have a site that gets 100-200 Uniates per day, almost all from google image search. It doesn't convert at all because people just view images directly.

    Wondering if there are any ways to pull people into the site?

    I use a frame breaker, so it will take them to my site. Helps monetize them.

    That made me laugh :p

    Use a frame breaker:

    Code:
    <script type='text/javascript'>if (window != top) top.location = self.location</script>

    That really depends on the niche. I did some experimenting over the summer and managed to rank well for a keyword that brought me in 1-3K Uniques a day. If you use a framebreaker plugin for wordpress you can force viewers to be redirected to your site instead of google, then you can also use a simple redirect or lightbox redirect to send people to your landing page. I got 10$ a day from adsense from that site but sadly had to drop it but because the domain was a copyrighted EMD. But I don't think 100-200 UV won't be very profitable unless its very specific and your have usefull content relevant to the picture people were searching for.

    Cool thanks mate, up give it a try tomorrow.

    Site used to get slot more traffic but I'd given up on it as I didn't think there was any way to monetize :(

    Wouldn't the image search rankings decrease or vanish if you use frame breaker? I remember reading something similar on an SEO blog. Not sure if its a valid concern though.

    i got a couple of blogs that get decent traffic but its mostly from google images traffic and i have always feared that because of this i will never monetize much of that traffic. So does this frame break code make it so once the viewer clicks on the image it sends them to the page with the image, instead of the image popping up over the website like it does normally?

    Also i have been wondering about different ways to monetize image traffic, couldnt you like name images with porn keywords and then use imagetwist or some other host like that to bank on image traffic? are there any other ways to make money off image traffic with like url shortening or something like that?

    Yes soon as user clicks image from google, they get directed to site rather than having image overlay.

    It helps, but CTR remains very low for me - I guess generally people are looking to download image, so if they land and dont immediately see the image, they mostly just hit the back button:(

    does anyone know about the imagetwist stuff? Like if I name some images with my niche keywords then upload them to imagetwist or some other payperview image host then post those images on my blog will I make money from the traffic i get from google image search when the person clicks on the image in the search?

    Try a frame script that doesnt allow google framing - then itll take them to your site, and then you have them, u can get creative.
