New images not indexed in Google Images - pages OK

 6:19 pm on Mar 12, 2008 (gmt 0)

A month ago added some 20 pages to my site. Some of these are in first 12 results now but images on those are not even being indexed in image search. They should be because text around is descriptive and images are good size and quality and using alt.

My old images are still in image search, so I wonder why the new ones are not at all.

Is it a matter of time or is there other problem?

Image search indexing is often a lot slower than page indexing. Not sure why, but it just is. Part of the challenge may be that it takes more processing to tag images for keywords, and also for SafeSearch.

Often times is significantly slower... by months. At least in my case.

I think you both are right and it's just a matter of patience in this case.

It would be nice to let people work on that identifying other's images? like [images.google.com...] but more popular and useful, I think the idea is brilliant but something more powerful.

I've been working with images for 15 years and the only commonality I have ever found is that my smaller sites (20-100 pages) seem to do much better than my larger sites (1,000+).

No idea why!
