    Hello Guys!

    I have a lot of images on Facebook, Msypace, etc. However, they just don´t rank in Google... I´ve been looking for a while, but I just could´t find a good service, which would help me improve the ranking of images... Do you know how I can get them to rank better, or if there is a good service to do so?

    Yours,
    Rockstar10

    I have the exact same problem. I work for a retail store and we sell using photos, but I seem to never be able to rank our photos at the top of google for their keywords.

    Image optimization is important for ranking. so you can do it properly.
    -Adding the file name with a relevant keyword
    -Use Alt tags. An Alt tags on your image that clearly describes your image.
    -reducing file size for high loading speed

    In order to make sure that your image ranks in google you need to properly optimize it. These are the key factors:
    • Alt tag - describes what an image is, should be precise, unique and consist of approx. 6 words,
    • Linked image - indicates the importance of an image and its role on the site,
    • Title - holding your mouse over an image displays more information about it,
    • The text, as well as its formatting, surrounding an image is also important and may affect the ranking
    • The name of an image - e.g. /image-positioning.jpg
    • The size of an image.
    What is more, I think the number of images may also affect their ranking (less is better).
