So how can you redirect Google image traffic to your website or wordpress blog. My personal blog currently have almost two posts on ART collection. And these two posts gather something around 50 plus unique organic visitors every day. But I am also getting lots of traffic to my individual images ( which is present in those posts ).
Almost 400 million queries are made on Google every day ( as of march 2012 ). This is an outstanding number. And almost 22 percent of the search are made on Google images. So theirs a huge possibility to drive lots of traffic. But their is a problem. You have to know how to redirect Google image traffic to your website. In the previous version of Google images, if you would search for any image, you were redirected back to the original website. I think this process was really good, but then the Googler had to wait a whole lot of time for the complete website to load.
So in-order to make this process simpler, and in-order to provide better surfing experience to Googlers, Google now creates an iFrame containing the image. So it simply means that Google is now caching almost every image which is present in your website ( if its indexable ).

Please make sure you copy the exact code. Although this is not going to affect your site presence, but if you miss anything, and it won’t work.
