Images.Google.Com Makes Up 1.59 Per Cent Of My Visitor Source

By Ben Nadel on

In the last week or so, images.google.com started showing up as a source of visitor referrals. It's kind of strange. I never would have thought something like that would have happened, especially since the majority of my pictures or screen shots of ColdFusion's CFDump tag output. What's interesting though, is you can see how important the ALT attribute for an image tag is to the Google spider. All of the titles that show up in the Google image search are taken directly out of my ALT attributes.

If you are curious, here are all the images indexed for my site.
