"alt" tag is very important too.

Include descriptive text on the page that is relevant to the image, and include the image close to the text on the page in the code. It can also help to build links to the pages that include the images.

Google gives plenty of advice about images.

Great insight from TechnoBear here!
“I would advise you to look at ways in which you can incorporate the data around the image. It could be in the meta information within the image, it can be the title, the name of the image or a paragraph of text around the image…”- Matt Cutts
Another good thing is to include a feature like “User comments” on your site. This helps you unknowingly target those keywords that the end users will type in their comments.

Can I ask why you monitor you Google image ranking so closely?

If you wanna get ranked well for google images. Try to properly used the Alt Tag with proper keywords which will automatically boost your ranked for the google images.

The proper use of the alt attribute is to provide a text alternative for those people unable to view the image, for whatever reason. Well-written alt text should also be helpful to search engines, but it is there primarily for the benefit of human visitors.

The surrounding text around the image may be a factor that would help your image to rank up. Correct me if I'm wrong here, guys.
The people here have been mentioning the "alt" attribute for the <a> tag. As TechnoBear here mentioned, it's used to provide those people who can't view images on their browsers with an alternative text version of that image. Along with the "alt" attribute, you should also change the name of the image into a more understandable one rather than leaving it like u12382asdbertasd7523.jpg, or something along that line.

Rename your image with related to post example - image-seo.jpg
Use Alt tag example - <img src="image.jpg" alt="Image-SEO">

May be we can optimize through alt tag or image adv.
molona — 2012-02-15T10:00:48-05:00 — #13
The alt attribute (it is an attribute and not a tag ) is the obvious solution and what everybody uses although I'm in this with @technobear. Alt attributes are to add an alternative description and they should not be used merely to stuff your page with keywords.
Don't know what you mean when you say image adv. I assume that adv. means advertisment but want to be sure.

Google looks to see if your images are duplicates of other images based off of size and file size. Make sure your images are a different size/resolution and the file size is different if you use press images or freely distributed images. It has worked for me. Just my two cents.

naming with the own site keyword and then with number to make distinguished from each other is one of the preferable tactics. alt tag is also necessary.
