    I've got one pic in G images that is #2 for a term that has 647,000,000 results on Google. I'm just now optimizing my site for G Images, but what's the best way to work with this traffic? I was at #2 this afternoon, I did a .htaccess trick that would take them to a dating site rather than the image, then I went down to #10, don't know if that's what caused it. Actually, the image that is getting hits was a deleted image, so they were getting a 404 until I realized what was going on. Should I just let the traffic hit that image, or should I redirect it to the home page?

    This is a term most people on BHW would kill for to rank like this,I just don't wanna jeopardize what could be a good thing here.
    TIA

    Redirect the traffic with a cloaker or with correct htaccess script where the bots see correct site but visitors see other.

    Cheers

    Can G image traffic be hijacked? The photo I had at the top is now directing to another site, how the hell did that happen?
