Google Image Searches

Another way to rank your site and push it up is to have photo and image content on your site and pages. Using ALT tags on your photos can get your name (or the name you want to push up) noticed more.  The more you have text, captions, ALT tags and file names that match your name, the better chance Google will interpret your images as being about you.

Its helpful to do a Google image search and see what kind of images come up. Some of them may be rather unexpected and not related to you at all. Or maybe remotely related to you. I did an image search recently, and someone else’s photo came up under a search of my name. Different gender and all. So its a good idea to check and see what will come up for you when you search. You may need to address it or not, but at least you will know what is being pulled up and associated with you and your site.

Of course if your photo is used in more places that have your name, the more likely the image will have your name in it.
