Redirect Image Search Traffic from Google to your Post


Image search is probably one of the most important aspects of Google search engine.

Recently Google introduced a system wherein a user who is searching an image doesn’t really need to browse across the website and the image loads in a frame, undoubtedly its a great feature for a user (searcher) but is a big traffic loss for the webmaster.

All webmasters know how important is legitimate traffic but losing that traffic just because your website is in background of that image frame doesn’t really make sense.

A lot of webmasters have implemented a simple script wherein you can break out of frames.

Break-Out-Of-Frames is a WordPress plugin that adds a small piece of javascript code to the head of each web page, so that it can break out of foreign frames.

You can download Break Out Of Frames from here.

For those who aren’t wordpress users or blogger can use the following simple code for the websites to break out of frames ie., redirect image search from google to your post;

<script type=”text/javascript”>
if (parent.frames.length > 0) { parent.location.href = location.href; }

Code inclusion needs to be between your <head> </head> section of your website code.

It maybe noted that above method also helps you redirect users to your site from those websites too which use your content in a frame in their websites.
