Google Rolling Out Refreshed Image Search [googleblog.blogspot.com]
And today, we have an index of over 10 billion images.

It’s not just about quantity, though. Over the past decade we’ve been baking deep computer science into Google Images to make it even faster and easier for you to find precisely the right images. We not only finds images for pretty much anything you type in; we can also instantly pull out images of clip art, line drawings, faces and even colors.

There’s even more sophisticated computer vision technology powering our “Similar images” tool. For example, did you know there are nine subspecies of leopards, each with a distinct pattern of spots? Google Images can recognize the difference, returning just leopards of a particular subspecies. It can tell you the name of the subspecies in a particular image—even if that image isn’t labeled—because other similar leopard images on the web are labeled with that subspecies’s name.

One of my sites has gone from page 3 or 4 a few months ago to #3 counting from the left upper corner. Before mayday it was always on page one but I don't think number 3. I never keep track because it never converts. It provides traffic but the traffic are tire kickers. Its an extremely expensive item over a million dollars, even though there is no price on it. Even though there is no keyword info on the page. The page is an about page. The file name is the keyword. keyword1_keyword2_sm.jpg, no alt text. It is a link to keyword1_keyword2.jpg which is bigger but does not show up in Google image search.
