Hello,

There are so many photos on the Internet that getting listed for image searches takes some work. Here is a link to another thread in this forum with more information on this topic: Images in search.

I hope this will be helpful!

Thanks Emmy,

To be honest all of the images on my site have been given a text name in the properties, but when i search none of them seem to show in searches, even though they have been on the site for 5 months!!

So i'm not really sure what else to do?

Hi MrTipsyD,
Can you give me a link to your site and also tell me what keywords you are using to search for your images. I can then take a closer look and see if I can give you some suggestions.

It can take a long time for images to rank well in Google and even then it fluctuates..... One thing that helps along with alt tags is to have text near the photo also saying what it is....Keep it brief.
I get traffic from adding my images to flickr.....Yahoo and Bing both draw heavily upon flickr for images as they are light years behind Google in the amount of images they have...I add links to my site with images on flickr ....that is why I get traffic from there.Easier to get a higher search placement also.
