How to make your competitors cry with Google Images?

Nothing will make your competitors hate you more than choosing to use Google images. Why might this be, you ask?

The Proofis in the Numbers

The percentage of Google images that appear in search results is growing rapidly, and as of September has reached 35% as summarized in all SEMrush countries databases. Significant changes can be seen in each region, as well:

  • In the USA, there is a 7% growth in 6 months and another 7% increase can obviously be expected by the end of the year
  • Germany shows the best result with a 10% total growth

The Google Images Trend

The overall situation with Google images keywords also needs to be taken into consideration. The numbers provide us with a clear understanding that we should also pay attention to Google images keyword optimization, as it can be a beneficial traffic source.

Keywords in September 2012 Also, I was curious about the trend in Google's USA database so I compared the share of Google image keywords to the total number of keywords for September and it's already increased 27%!

Amazing! I knew that Google images would begin playing a bigger role in the search engine optimization of websites over time. Based off your findings the numbers don't lie. This further drives home the point that serious marketers need to attend to every detail of the SEO process especially images.
