    hi guys!
    how do you seo to get images showing up in google images?
    i'm guessing it's building anchor text links to the images just as a website?
    any other advice???
    thanks!

    Hey man,

    Yes it's possible and still not saturated :)

    From my experience, to rank images you need hotlinking..
    The more websites adds <img src="URImageLink" alt="Your Keyword"> the higher your image will rank (Ofc depends on the pages PR etc)

    Also, it's important to add alt & title tags to your images. And also to name your image with your keyword (As it also highlights when someone search).

    Another thing I found useful, is to make sure to mention the image's targeted keyword around the image (In your webpage article).

    Good luck man :)

    Seems to me as there wouldn't be a whole lot of competition for this if you had a way of doing mass hotlinking to get more links to your images.

    I'm guessing you could also just link to an image with a text link for the keyword you want to rank for and that would rank you as well?
