No 1 Ranking On Google With An Image And Not A Webpage?
I have not had the time to do more research on this, but I notice that within my niche and for most of my targeted keyword phrases, images rank in the no.1 position (not a domain as such).
If one clicks through on the image link, one lands on Google's Image search result page (just as though you have been searching in Google Images for the particular keyword). Click on any image and the landing page shows an enlarged image BUT with a link to the webpage that hosts the image.
My niche involves colors, so one of my questions are: Does Google recognize somehow that, within certain niches (such as niches where colors are involved), a picture would give a better result to the searcher? - I find that hard to believe, but would love if someone can give me more information on this.
Or is it just a case that the owner of the website that hosts the images has done a better SEO job....but why then does his domain or webpage address not rank anywhere for the search term but only the image?
This one confuses me - any help appreciated.
