    I don't know of a manual way to do it, but this could help:
    *Name your images clearly e.g: tent.jpg instead of im02.jpg
    *Provide descriptions in alt, and title tags: "Two man sleeper tent"

    This should make it easier for the bots to know what the images are about and to include them.

    No one knows exactly how Google ranks images, however a good alt description and filename do surely help.

    Does anyone know of a way to automate this via a feed? Perhaps similar to a feed you would send to Froogle? I notice that stock photography sites seem to have many images apearing in the results (in the UK results anyway) so that tells me that there may be a way to automate it?

    Of course it could be that the sheer amount of images they have on site in relation to text content. Perhaps an investigation in to how these stock photo sites seem to construct their pages may give us some ideas how they are sucessful at getting in the Google images results.

    I have found that with Google you can do a query and have an image show in the SERPs. But when you click on the thumbnail image itself to view the image you goto a page the image may NOT be on that page. Just the link to the image is on the page. What is on the hosting page is a descriptive ANCHOR TEXT.

    Image Name
    Alt Tags
    Anchor Text

    The best way to promote yourself on google (including images) is to register with Blogger and then embed your blog into your own webpage. You can do this under the advanced template options.

    Naturally GoogleAds promotes you even more.

    ei guys make no mistake of calling alt as a tag,. Its just an attribute of the <img tag,.

    Abyway, use alt attribute, put your keyword on it, make sure it fits on the image and wait for google to index it,.

    alt tag and surrounding content..
    I have dont image seo before :p

    Its based on the alt tag / links / content on the page and some other smaller things
    the location of the image itself does not matter as much (if the image is on domain c but is shown on domain a.. )

    It depends on the file you sent. The bigger the files, less likely to come up first. It matters also on the webpage.

    Best way to do is making sure you name image appropriately.and adding alt text to every image.
