Have you enabled Google enhanced image search?

Do you have a blog where only images speak? or
you have a blog post more with images than content? or
Worried why your site article or pages are not much indexed with Google Search?

Here is the reason why you need to opt-in for an enhanced image search!

If you enable enhanced image search, Google will use tools such as Google Image Labeler to associate the images included in your site with labels that will improve the indexing and search quality of those images.

So make sure you have proper tooltips or alt or title in the image tag which describes the image, to know more about alt and title just go through this cool article on the “alt” and the “title” attributes by 456 Berea Street.
