Question 1: My site has been live for a few months, and none of the images from my sight are showing up in Google Images. Do you have any insights into how to successfully make sure they are added?
Our Response: We checked Google Images by listing your site “site:yourdomain.com” in the search field to verify that your site images are displayed. The below optimization tactics may also weigh into why the images are not working correctly:
- The images are duplicates already used by other websites. Please check if these images are unique to your site.
- The images may be formatted incorrectly. Ensure that your image format is supported by Google.
- Add alt attributes to show up in image search results.
- Try reducing the file size of the image.
- Read Google’s image search guide for more information.

Question 2: Why is a Terms and Conditions Page important for my small website?
Our Response: We highly encourage you to include a Terms and Conditions page to your website. A Terms and Conditions page encourages credibility and trust for your website reputation. In addition, customers will feel more comfortable when they make purchases, and it contains essential legal information for your business. Check out our Terms and Conditions Guide for more details here.
