    Help with img-tag

    Hi everyone,

    I forehand applogise for my english (im Dutch) and this probabbly beeing a very nooby question, nontheless i need help!
    I am trying to tag images so they can be found on the net. On my html page i've put an 'alt' aswell as an 'title' tag.
    Here is a example: <img src="photos/thumb_image15.jpg" alt="Dropveters halssieraad" title="Dropveters halssieraad ketting" width="217" height="130">

    So if i am correct the words tagged to the image are: dropveters, halssieraad ketting.
    The site is online longer than a week. Still, if i search any combination of these three words nothing is found on the net.
    Can anybody tell me why?

    Thanks!

    Do you have links to your page from other sites already listed by Google. If you don't have links from other sites then Google will not consider your page to be important enough to list.

    Also the alt and title attributes are not there to tag the image for the search engines. The alt tag provides the alternate text for people who can't see the image (eg. they are blind or using a text only browser). Those people who can't see the image will 'see' the alt text instead. The title attribute is for generating a tooltip. Most browsers display the text in a yellow box when you hover the mouse over whatever tag the title is attached to. Some browsers display the text in the status bar instead so as to not cover the content you are trying to interact with. The content of those attributes should be written with these intended purposes in mind - then the search engines will make appropriate use of the information rather than blacklisting your page as soon as they identify that you are presenting junk text to your real visitors.
