    Hey guys ! I have an expired domain which i started building hq links from many pbns from the market place. None of my targeted keywords are ranking. Today i noticed that one of my site images is ranking on 1st spot of the images carrousel on serps . What's even stranger is that the keyword its ranking for a big main keyword with 240 K MS . I was not even trying to target that keyword, big it's difficult af. just to give an example it would be "car insurance" while im trying to rank for "car insurance quotes san diego district 2" . And yeah, my main keyword has lot of images since the nature of my niche is a sport. I'm not sure why im appearing there, i was starting to think that my site was penalized, but since i'm ranking there it's a signal that things are getting good and i'm not penalized ? Thanks

    Unless you have seen a sharp decline in the SERPs or a message on your WMT dashboard I seriously
    doubt your website was penalized. What you are experiencing is the benefit of proper on-site SEO and
    image optimization.
