    Well, you don’t have to rename them. At least you can start changing the way you name them from now.

  3. Great article, Kumo!

    My experiences with Image Searches are invaluable. I name all my images according to keywords, and I put their keywords into their alt and title tags.

    My http://www.smart-travel-germany.com site, for example, receives up to 70% traffic from Image Searches!
