Google Images and Traffic

Do you have a post that gets all sorts of traffic?

I do.

Previously I realised it was the image on the page getting all of the hits via google so I changed the image.

Problem solved, I was back on real traffic stats.

Of course, Google being Google, it eventually caught up and guess what?  My post is back in high rotation again.

This is the post.   It has a couple of clip art pictures of bananas.  I didn't credit the images because they came off my PC clip art.  I don't get why Google ranks them so highly!!

Now, personally I hate the inflated traffic, it's not real, but does it really matter? Do I change the image yet again?

What do you think?


  1. Maybe it's the topic. After all, doesn't everyone go bananas for bananas? ;-)

    I say leave it as is.

  2. I'm actually thinking that I should copy the images randomly into my blog to increase traffic!


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read them all and try very hard to reply.
