Trial and (Maybe) Error: How to Rank your Photo as the Top Google Image Result in Under a Week

I watched a few Youtube videos, this one in particular, that inspired me to try to see if it really is as easy as they say it is to rank as the top image on Google Images with any silly photo you have. I have a really great developer that deserves his own TV show on my team currently, and thought I could help him out with the ladies. I’m planning for him to be the number one result for hottest developer in Seattle so he can show off to all of his friends. Who knows, maybe even link the search result in his Tinder profile (sorry ladies, he’s harder to find than that. No apps for this guy. Comment below for his phone number though :’D.

Here is the image I will be using:

hottest developer in seattle

I know what you’re thinking; why would I need to use SEO tricks to rank that guy as hottest developer in Seattle? Well, your guess is as good as mine. Anyway, let’s try it out.

Added my image and alt-text

So once I uploaded the above image, I also added the alttext to my image hosted on this page (I am using WordPress & the theme may change by the time you read this). Alt-text is exactly what I’m optimizing for: “hottest developer in Seattle.”

Hire a Fiverr Virtual Assistant to Submit my Image to 15 Sites

I hired VirtualGirl2010 from her ad here. – pretty cool username, huh?

Things she asked for (and I would have given her anyway – so make sure not to forget these):

  1. The image URL (my image is a .png – be sure the image has the full URL path from your site, don’t just give her the image from your desktop!)
  2. The URL to the page the image lives on (I gave her the URL to the page you are looking at right now)
  3. A description that includes your keyword – I used: “Andy Henderson is the hottest developer in Seattle”
  4. The keyword/phrase itself: hottest developer in Seattle
  5. I also gave her a Title: Is Andy Henderson the hottest developer in Seattle?

So far I have spent $7.78.

It says I needed to wait three days for delivery.


If for some reason, your image is still not ranking first, my next plan of attack would be:

Navigate to:

Order a 5-pack of their Tier 2 PBN Links. This should get you where you need to be. Don’t settle for second place.
