    I have only a few photos that are on the 1st page of google image search, and some of them point to another site...
    Is there anything I can do about it?
    Is that a type of cloaking?

    Also, some of my photos point to a Pinterest search page that doesn't even show my own pin. That pisses me off too. Anything to be done about that?

    To clarify, you made custom images and put them on your website. Now they're on other websites. Is that correct?

    It sounds like they probably just downloaded your images and rehosted them on different domains. Which is fairly common. Basically anything that you post online will inevitably end up being scraped, spun, turned into an abomination, and then rehosted on other domains.

    No, they're not on the other website. The landing page of the other website shows another item/image.
    I know image pilfering is inevitable, it just pisses me off that it's on Google's 1st page

    How did you make your photos rank that high?
