In this article, we will take a quick look at how to redirect Google search image results to the actual web page that hosts the image.
Why would you want to do this? Well, you might be losing a lot of money and lot of web traffic and not even know it.
A client of mine recently came to me and remarked:
“I recently realized in looking at my web stats that I am getting a lot of people who are looking at my web images from the Google search results. However, I don’t benefit from that at all. They see my image in the Google search results but never get one look at the content of my site. Is there anything that I can do about this?”
In fact, there is something that you can do about this.
Many people out there are losing significant potential income because people are viewing their website images from the Google images results but not actually viewing their website.
There is something that you can do about this and it is very easy to implement. It is a WordPress plugin called Break Out of Frames. This is perhaps one of the easiest plug-ins that you will ever implement that yields the biggest reward.
After implementing the plugin, when people view your image from the Google Image search results, the image page will be redirected to the page containing the image, rather than just the image itself.
After implementing this simple little plugin, the client referenced above had 1000′s of more visits to his website monthly and drastically increased his income.
Occasionally, there are those little things that you can do which yield large results. This is one of them–take advantage of it!
