Tips for ranking high on Google Image Search

Ranking high on Image search engines like Yahoo, Google or MSN, can bring a good amount of traffic to your website.

Here are a few tips to improve your ranking on Google Images Search:

* Use a descriptive image filename instead of the default camera file name.(as .jpg files)

* Attach a 7-8 word description with both the ALT and TITLE attributes of the IMG tag - Make it a habit to use these attributes.

* A short two line description of the image just beneath the graphic is the best way to describe an image.

* If possible, try to wrap text around your images using float.

* If your site design won't allow wrapping text or if the image is large in size, try to place the images near the text that describes the context of your image. If the image is of an Adobe Photoshop box, don't place that image near the paragraph that describes Corel Photopaint.

* Web Images placed at the top of the page are more likely to appear in search results than the ones which are at the bottom.

* Web Photo Galleries which have no text descriptions can make use of the Title and Meta tags to insert information about the images.

* A descriptions enclosed in H3 or Bold tag will have more weight than the one enclosed in the Parapraph tag.
