I have some big websites based only on images, that monetize through Adsense (got it approved with a normal text website). The problem is that since there is no text, google can't show related ads, therefore my cpc and my ctr are very low. Any suggestion on how to put text?

Thanks a lot!

Give your images, wherever possible, at least a 100 word description.

Do you own these images, or are they from the web and other places?

@greybeard123
A description would ruin the design of the website.. Would alt text work as well?

@lame_wolf
I own them :)

"Would alt text work as well? "

Also... how about text in the meta description field. Would that help his situation?

Use alt="what is the image" title="image or product description"

I can remember lots of "trends." I used to say that someone ate a cheeseburger for lunch and had a good earnings day then the phrase "have a cheeseburger have a good earnings day" would get repeated again and again.

So that leads me to ask about the "100 words" rule. Is this something that came directly from Google or is it an oft repeated tale? Would it be just as good to have a 50 word description, a 25 word description, etc?

^ ^ ^ ^ What LW said or "a load of rowlocks" :-)

I have many, many images at #1 with a three word alt, title and on-page description, I also have some two word ones but the vast majority are three and a few four.
