Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
So I figure that site is a "lost cause"....correct assumption, right?
Instead I'm focusing on making new sites and blogs for 2007 and making sure there are links added daily from all the major "trusted authority sites"...
"Authority" is the key buzzword for SEO as we start 2007. Right?
But thanks for clearing that up...no trust parameter for images...got it.
Here goes: If you use a STABLE proxy not one of those that keeps shifting on port 8080 ever x-seconds --- and you use a ssh connection on say port 22 with a LARGE stable SERVER you can boost your ranking if you WORK IN MODERATION.
To do this there are many tools (email me if you want names of products) which IF USED ON A PORT 22 server system will help you greatly.
On the stable proxy for 1) hits on downloaded images, 2) pageviews (with such things an an OPERA refresh set at big intervals on computers that are left on all year - say a refresh with OPERA at ever 15 minutes and 20 seconds and 3) other "tools for other factors" + which means I can not reveal all, sorry :)
Thats not true............
I wish i knew why you said that but i guess you won't tell me :P
Having some images show up for keywords people compete for in web search like madness, while not having the site show up in the index with a single URL - even though it's both relevant and has a higher PR than some of the pages on the SERPs - was THE scare why we had to learn about trust. Even if you're right on trust being applied to G Images it has a way lower threshold than web search.
