    I'm not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing, but at least 50% of my traffic is not exactly coming to my site for content. They are coming from image searches.
    Every time I check my stats I have all kinds of good search terms, but I have also over half (sometimes more) referring from something like:

    hx xp :// w ww . g00gle .c0 m /img res ? imgu rl =

    I don't think that my stats/counters (stat-press H*stg*tor & G00gle) actually COUNT these as visits, but still.

    I did intend to target the SEs when I named the images, but I am wondering if this is just a waste of bandwidth or what. Is there anything I can do to make these image visitors into useful visitors?

    I am in the exact situation, and the traffic is not so good, they are not clicking the ads.
    I also tried to install a frame-breaker in order to close the frame that google shows when somebody clicks on an image in the search results, still nothing.
    And I guess there is nothing you can do with this traffic. The only good thing is that my Alexa rank increased.
    But I'm still open to suggestions :)
