Do there seem to be different expectations now (from Google) for different types of sites? Image sites naturally have less text, since the images, theoretically, speak for themselves. In the past, though, Google treated them the same and it was hard to rank well against a traditional content site. Stats on my image site have doubled this month. I don't know if it's due to universal search, due to the thinning out of other sites that were above mine, or possibly due to a change in expectations for this kind of site.
