Does anyone know the difinitive way to hook a keyword to an image in Google?

I tried this, but I don't think it is going to work:

<a href='http://www.mysite.com/myimage.jpg>keyword</a>

For example: On my site http://www.wildjohn.com I put the obscure keyword Bl.... M... (I will not put the keyword here so it isnt indexed) and linked it to an image from my vacation.

I am trying to get that keyword linked to the image.

Anyone know how to do it? I used the obscure keyword so there was no competition.

first off your link is missing a quote ... but what if you used:

Code: [ Select ]
<img src="http://www.mysite.com/myimage.jpg" alt="keyword">


I think alt tags might do this?

Good idea I try this.

I added an image (rather than a link), and made alt tags in the <a> hrefs. Are alt tags valid HTML in a ref tags? I also made the image name a keyword.

So now it's just a matter of waiting for Google to index it again and see what it shows for thost keywords, and which keyword it decideds is best.

Doesn't Google look at the words around the image as well? Think about the results you get when you search for something. In fact, try searching for something in images, then see what would have caused google to make the association.

Might be interesting to see if Google reads IPTC keywords in images.

True, True. The alt tag and then what ever the alt tag is as a word next to it.

That might prove interesting ....

I think I have pretty much implemented all types of keyword tags for this image. Now it's just a matter of waiting for Google to do it's next update and see which obscure keyword Google notices.

Does anyone have any other method they think I should use before Google arrives?

Please remove the Bl.... Mu... from your post. I dont want any competition for keywords.

I did a search for Bl.. Mu... in the images section, but it doesn't show up as an image. This is my goal.

Ok so I think I need to run the test again. If you look for Blo... Mu...., OZZU shows up and it's this thread. So seems Google has picked up on that one occurance when you typed it in, and has ranked this thread above wildjohn.

Notice, that even though WildJohn.com has been re-indexed, it doesn't show up in the search results for the keywords:

1) http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=si ... ldjohn.com

2) Now search google for Iso... or Blo.. Mul... and you will see they don't show up as results on wildjohn.com

I also go to the images section for those keywords, and again, nothing. But before Bl... Mul... was indexed on OZZU, it DID show up in the search results for wildjohn.com

Yes, before OZZU was indexed, it did show up. Now that wildjohn has been re-indexed (notice it knows that there are more keywords), it doesn't show up.

I am thinking I need to do my next experiement on a page with 500 normal words, and have the special keywords intermixed in them. Maybe this is why it dropped off - there are no 'real' words on the page.

Use the story that has been created with the three word posting game, that ought to be enough and mix in your special words?

If anything, both should have been on google due to my mistake and not drop your's off the face of the map. Perhaps google realized the test?

I think this is possible. OR, it is possible the search engine that ranks and returns results is seperate than the part that returns site:

This means site: would have a database of known results, where search would have a database of useful results. OZZU is useful, whereas the random pages with non-words was not useful.

Where is the page generator you talked about?

Ok, so an update:

Last week, Google site:www.wildjohn.com was showing all my keywords (meaning they knew that "lok...uta" was on my site), but it wasn't showing in the search. This means that the site: tool, is in fact seperate from the search engine.

Now, when you go to wildjohn.com and search for those keywords, they do in fact show up in the search engine. So all has been updated.

But, I still can't get any of the keywords to show up in the images section...hmmm...

Again, don't use the keywords in your replies here on Ozzu. As I don't want the keywords indexed here.

This would tell me the key words in alt tags might not mean a while lot from googles view point.

Yet I just searched for truck on an image search, and trucks came up and truck was in the alt tag.

Perhaps it has something to do with key word density. It is a feature on the google webmaster tools.

Have you tried this with yahoo or anything at all yet?

You are indexed on yahoo.

Try this or something close. Don't use one word in the alt tag use a 4 word phrase like: "logical peanuts smell sulfer" or something waaaaaaaaaaay out there and it might follow the same rules as meta tag key words as 2 to 4 word phrases, not single key words are recommended.
