    Hi, i created a photo blog for my new hobby which is photography :) ...Everytime i create a blogpost i just attach the photo, put title, tags, category, alt and title attributes for the photo then publish it.

    The blogpost contains only photos, without caption or any text that explain what is the photo all about...Is this against the TOS of Google Adsense? Do i have to be afraid on how Google will rank my site?

    Any opinions? suggestions?

    It's not against the TOS (at least I don't think it is said anywhere that there HAS to be text). That said, I would add like at least ~100 words per post, so Adsense knows what ads to display, and also to help getting ranked in image search.

    What are you photographing? I think it will be hard to actually make any money, might be better of trying to sell the image rights maybe?

    Im just new to photography, still exploring my new dslr, anything that interest me i just take a shot and post it...yes, im also planning to sell the image rights, but not now, maybe if im already confident that my photos looks professional :D

    It's better to put description ON THE POST BODY somewhere under the photo too.

    For example.

    [Photo of rose tree]

    I took this photo in the early morning.
    ISO:900 but it seems I need to change the ISO or the lens focal length to make a good composition.

    Well, that's "photo blogging" all about.

    If you just want to upload photos, well just do it then. This is just an advice anyway. :)

    Of course google won't be mad.
    He just won't like your blog post that much compare to other people who put text. ;)
