I need some help with Google Search images, the title of the image and it’s redirection.
Here is an example. It finds my photo, but the title is wrong, and redirects to the blog homepage,
Link to that google image search: https://www.google.com/search?sca_esv=590108434&rlz=1C5CHFA_enES1063ES1063&q=el+petit+celler+reskyt&tbm=isch&source=lnms&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjgjdf324mDAxWSRaQEHfdmDygQ0pQJegQICRAB&biw=1680&bih=933&dpr=2#imgrc=yGvgUTKc8nfp0M
It should have the same Title as the CMS title I guess and should redirect to the blog post as some other images on google images.
Here is an example:
Link to Google Search: https://www.google.com/search?sca_esv=590108434&rlz=1C5CHFA_enES1063ES1063&q=galileo+farma+reskyt&tbm=isch&source=lnms&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiagNTq24mDAxUBV6QEHT7MCtkQ0pQJegQICRAB&biw=1680&bih=933&dpr=2#imgrc=gQd-oAmQNAvDPM
Here I attach a screenshot of my Open Graph settings for these pages:

Any help would be appreciated,
Thanks in advance!

It likely indexed that one from the blog homepage, as you have the photos there also.
As to why Google is ignoring the alt text, it may have indexed it before you added the alt text, or the algo just decided differently.
There isn’t much more you can do to control those results, but if you’re into custom code work there are a few things you can try;
- Add image
title attributes as well
- Possibly JSON-LD to highlight relevant images
And then the next level would require a reverse proxy-
- Replace and localize your image URLs
- Add images to the sitemap.xml
Thanks for your fast response. Can you show me some examples, or provide me some links with docs on how to implement the custom code?
I’m not sure which solution approaches you’re considering.
Local-code solutions like adding
titles to your images is relatively easy depending on how you do it. You could just find all images, and duplicate the content of the
alt attribute, depending on how your pages are setup and what text you’re wanting to attach to each image.
Google or chatgpt will help you find those solutions and craft them to your specific HTML DOM.
Reverse proxy solutions are more complex.
I build these often for clients, and it’s often for SEO reasons - but in my view in this situation that’s probably overkill. I’ve not seen evidence that e.g. images in the sitemap makes a big difference to your SEO and it would be quite complex to build that performantly,
Search the forum here if you’re interested to learn more, you’ll find discussions and tutorials.
If you’re looking for a developer to help you build a solution, drop me a line- but first I’d suggest you research the SEO impacts of whatever feature you’re wanting to add to make certain it’s worth the effort. Most of my focus so far on reverse proxy SEO work surrounds path flexibility, semantic paths and keywording.
Yes, I will do the approach of the titles. This approach, I will have to do it inside the blog post or on the homepage only or on both sides?
No idea, what does your SEO research suggest you should do?
I’d assume if it has any noticeable improvement you’d want to take that approach on all indexworthy images.
Thanks for your help, we will try the title approach and I will be back with the conclusions.
