    Exclamation does included images from your site improve your ranking?

    i have an image gallery site..
    and forum sites usually include images from my site to be displayed in their forum threads or signature.

    does this improve my ranking?

    It can create traffic from google image l;ibrary.

    Howevere I have ntoiced this traffic tenms to be of a lower quality as it has significantly less pageviews per visit, converst at a lower precentage and has a mmuch higher bounce rate.

    Unless your product os very nclosley tied wityh imagry I would not bother to much.

    Including images that are hosted on your server is good for Google and other search engines because it shows you have more content, if you block them from being indexed just because Google image clicks are "lower quality", you may lower your page position and thus lose important clicks.

    There may be a drawback if people are posting the pictures without you checking them, Google can cut off all search results for your site if they get one DMCA notice letter. Make sure you check the pics.

    So like I've said before in other threads, don't depend on just Google for all your traffic.

    To be honest, I don't think there will be much help, but if u add an alt tag on it, it still a backlink!
