Very few if my product images appear on Google image search.


All my images have meta tags, I even added pixeler as a meta tag, but very very few show up.


Selling prints on my pixel8er.co.uk them not showing up is really not good.


Over a couple of days, I submitted and checked every product on Google Web tools, everything is submitted.


Without images showing up, it reallyakes driving traffic hard.


What can be done, no end of topics don't seem to have a definitive answer, or are years old.

Hi there, @Adasboutique12. Thanks for taking the time to follow up on this older thread! My name is Imogen. It's good to meet you!

Google uses something called 'crawling bots' to scan online websites and their pages to determine what to feature in their Search Results. What Google shows in these results is entirely up to them, and not something you can control directly, but you can take steps to help get the best information you can out there on Google! You should look into submitting your Sitemap to Google as this will help their bots crawl your store and more easily find the information best to generate. From there, you can also look into reaching out to Google's Support Team directly via their Help Center as they may be able to advise you on why these images aren't appearing on their platform, and what steps you can take to help them appear.
