    I'm trying to get a photo in the top 10 on Google images for a competitive keyword of 4 million pictures. Currently i'm number 40,and its been on my site for about 2 weeks. Can I use the picture URL with the keyword as anchor text and get back links like I normally would do for my main URL?

    What size is the picture? Dimensions?
    What other text is on and around the page?

    google image traffic sucks big time... They display our site image in their page itself. most of the users are not coming to our sites. I used get 5k to 10k hits per day through google images search but I rarely get 1 or 2 adsense click...

    Actually I wasn't #40,I was on #1 on page 4,and moved up to the 5th pic from the last on page #2. But never did any backlinks on it.

    But since It doesn't get any adsense clicks just going to focus on getting my main page ranked.

    Why do not use alt tag with your image when you are working for image optimization.

    Just SEO for the page the picture is on, and use internal SEO on the image itself - so image title, alt text and filename. I accidentally found this out and had an image at number 1 for 'skateboarding' about a year ago, which sat there for 6 months. It pulled in insane amounts of traffic, but close to nothing dollars wise. IMO.... not worth it
