How to Add Pictures To Google Images

Random images from random people from random sites. These are the images in Google Image Search, and many wonder “How to add pictures to Google” or “What is the submission process?”. Both are tricky questions.

The truth is, Google does not have those images in their database. Those images are uploaded from different sites owned by other people and a web robot called spider just crawled on to those sites and remembers the publicly viewable images.

But if you want to know how other people do it here are two pieces of advice.

Advice #1 - Own a blog, and upload your photos there together with an article.

Sign up for free in Blogger.com or WordPress.com. You can also buy your own domain like www.yourname.com and get a web hosting service. Then set up your blog, design it however you like, and post an article.

If you have photos about your adventure in the Grand Canyon, make a post about it, and upload the photos. Make sure that these photos have descriptive file names like Dennis_Smith_Grand_Canyon.jpg instead of Image582.jpg. The keywords in the file name helps Google index your photo.

If you want your own photo appear in the search results, make an About Me page in your blog, and include your photo. Make sure the photo’s file name has your name it. For example, your name is China Mendez then the file name of the photo is China_Mendez.jpg. That seems a unique name, so it has high probability that it will be included in the search results if someone searches China Mendez. However, if your name is John Smith (John_Smith.jpg), which is a very common name, then there is a slim possibility your photo will be in the search results if someone searches for John Smith.

Make sure though that you submit your site to Google.

Advice #2 – Sign up in Social Networking Sites, and upload your photos there.

Some photos from social networking sites like LinkedIn.com, Digg.com, Multiply.com, and Facebook.com appear in Google image search results. These photos are included because the users set their profile, and photos viewable by public, to appear in the search engines. Just check the photo privacy settings of your social networking account. File names I believe will also be a factor.

So, that’s it.

These steps, however, does not work all the time, because there is a certain criteria on how these images appear in the search results. Besides, Google image bot may take time before it visit your blog like months. Also, Image Search’s algorithm could not be as efficient as that of Google Search since it’s harder to index images. Anyway, if you have time you can help thm describe the photos that appear in search results by playing the Image Labeler.
