I think it was added to the gallery, but not the homepage, which is why you might not have noticed. Not sure how long it will stay. We do need to update soon. I am proud to say that 5 of the sites we currently feature came to our attention through Get Satisfaction. I like to think this says something about the quality of sites active community members create.

I have done well with images on Google....I rename some of them to match the keywords in properties and alt tags as in instead of image123.jpg the image title itself will say something like wood end table.jpg ....I read where it is wise to put text on your page next to the photo to describe it....It is also unwise to keyword stuff titles and alt tags.

Sorry I can't find the video on this but it did talk about naming the image as what is is instead of image123.jpg as helping with image ranking and search....It was a Google video though...If I come across it later I will post the link.
