    Dropped from Google Images?


    My site haironthebrain.com received a steady stream of traffic from Google Image Search until this week when it started to dramatically decrease. I can't find any of my images indexed in there anymore and traffic from there is almost at 0. Any ideas why this might have happened?

    I made no changes to how I post images on the site, it just seems like Google removed me from the Image Search results which is very troubling. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Just a quick bump - has anyone else seen this happy to their site? Has Google changed the way they rank Images recently?

    Yep... and most use image search to find images to steal... Got a #1 image that keeps switching among a few sites, always same position and image, just the site it brings you to changes... G even shows images hotlinked... so your image, but G links the site or blog that hotlinked your image... so in a way, Google is rewarding people that steal from others.
