Not exactly the same question but i figured it's better not to open a new thread for it... ;)
We can come down to the conclusion that an image having a link on it just doesn't work for passing pagerank and such... or something. Anyway it just doesn't work, and we need to have it fixed.
We designed the site with a lot of picture links, some pages aren't even accessible from other kind of referrers than a thumbnail of a photo... which...
... was a bad idea.
Now, if we were to add captions... ( a short version of the alt text ) or use the sometimes already added caption-text as a link...
What do you think would happen?
I mean to our pages in G :P
Would it be bad?
I meant would using something like this cause a problem:
<a href="page.html"><img tag>Caption</a>
<a href="page.html"><img tag><br>Caption</a>
... please help me out, what do you think G will say about this ( if anything )? I just don't want to have any more complications out of being so damn resourceful :( ... but... adding 2 links for the same page would sometimes result in ... er... much more links than it should :P
( an album with 50 pics would have 100 links... and that's a bad too, in my opinion... but what do i know... )
