Further to my last post I can confirm, insofar as my trade directory site is concerned, that about 2,000 images have been added back into to the image SERPs this past week. Only another NN,000 or so to go!
As yet my B&M sites have not yet seen any substantial increases however a couple of sites that did not have ANY images shown whatsoever have actually got a couple there now...hopefully I reckon I'm on the right track.
And purely by coincidence it's interesting to note that as my images seem to be retuning that my AdSense earnings are returning to their normal levels.
Did I possibly get penalised in AdSense by accidentally not allowing Google in?
