How to add an image to Google Images

[MUSIC PLAYING] Hi, I’m Peter, a product manager
on Google Images. Today I’m going to tell you how
you can add your image to Google Images. Google Images is not the source
of the images in its search results. Instead it crawls the web for
images to include on the search results page. This means that you can’t upload
an image directly to Google, but alternatively, you
should upload it somewhere else on the web. If you have a website, you
can upload it there. If not, you can upload it to one
of Google’s free services, such as Google Blogger
or Picasa. After uploading the image,
make sure to include descriptive text near it. This helps Google understand
what the image depicts and what searches it will
be most relevant to. Also, be sure that the web page
containing your image is publicly accessible. For example, in Picasa, check
the privacy settings to make sure the content is shared
with the public. Finally, be patient. Images only appear on Google
once they’ve been indexed, which can take some time. But by following these tips,
you are more likely to see your images in Google Image
search results. To learn more, please visit
