Not sure, unless you mean alt text or the click through link from an image?

Hi,

I am not sure but as per my knowledge i can get beck link from image as when the image (on the other site)will be clicked it will be redirected to our site so it will be useful also.

Many thanks for replies, actually I did not figure that a backlink to an image does not point to any page, just to the image itself it may, however, have some value as far as directing traffic to the site as Google indexes images; descriptive file name would be a must.

Google count the backlinck for images, but I don't know about link on an Image, it accept or not. Google also count the name of images for backlink.

Linking with the image is nothing but image backlinks. Your site will be linked through image on 3rd party websites. Google counts the image backlinks since images links are good too, because they allow both alt and title tags in the image link.

Hi Friends

<img src="http://yoursite.com/image.jpg" alt="YOUR KEYWORD">

and then post it on thousands and thousands of sites.

It also helps if you go to google images, choose a keyword, then grab all of the images that you can find that resemble your keyword. Then just take over that image category on google images. That way you will get people leaching off of your image and giving you a backlink.

Thanks and Regards

If you host a good image on your website and another website uses the image on theirs. They are using your content so Google obviously thinks it is held in high regard, this counts in your favour.

An example is if you did a helpful diagram on the risks of smoking and other websites find it great and embed it onto their website (without saving the image and uploading it to their servers) , they are "hot linking" your image.
