    Yes, traffic dropped for me too. There's nothing you can really do about it.

    Yes. most of images site are unable to see their traffic only bcoz of the software that was used by Google for latest Image Search results..
    We are getting traffic to sites, but not get visible in GA...!
    Better solutions is to add some tracks to find the Image Clicks

    Wow. Google uses your image without anyone having to visit your site. They are no better than a scraper site.

    Hi to all It is a very problem for me, my site is decreasing of 60 % visitors.
    What Can I do ?
    All my traffic is decreasing. I am thinking to close the site and also not pay more workers.
    What sense has this step ?
    I ask all to do a request to Google to reput all as was before.
    Thanks to all

    I receive a lot of traffic from image search, but nothing converts. So, it's better for me if that traffic goes down.

    A couple of things to consider:

    1) Is the loss in traffic to do with the changes in Google Images layout or your ranking in Google images? (Did anyone check if that has changed?)
    2) Did this traffic even convert?

    I've noticed a slight decline in Google Images traffic, but (unfortunately) haven't been tracking my rank. Importantly, what I did notice though is my revenue hasn't declined.

    I found a solution for it.
    if some one clicks on your image on google search result and choose to view original image then he will be redirected to the page which contains that image.

    Step 1 add these lines in your .htaccess (replace yourdoamin )

    RewriteEngine On

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http(s)?://(www\.)?yourdomain.com [NC]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} .*jpg$|.*gif$|.*png$ [NC]
    RewriteRule (.*) /image.php


    ---------------step 2------------------
    make a new file image.php and add these lines


    <?php
    $referrer = $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER'];
    $parsed = parse_url( $referrer, PHP_URL_QUERY );
    parse_str( $parsed, $query );
    $url = $query['imgrefurl'];
    header( "Location:$url" ) ;
    ?>
