Wasn't sure where I'd put this - hope I 'm in a somewhat correct place...
Yesterday I tried to search google for one of my photos - I have a habit of doing so since I realized a couple of years ago that one of my photos of a cinnamon roll found it's way onto just over 6o blogs/webpages/other media. It's not a very good photo, and there are plenty of somewhat similar photos but I still "look after my house" and i actually managed to get some money out of the illegal use of that photo when I did spent some time on the matter a couple of years ago.
Anyway - my usual way of searching for images is that I pull up my site (www.pastelito-sueco.com), right-click on the images and choose "search google for image". Using the cinnmon roll on the "landing page" usually returns about 2-3 pages of hits.
- Yesterday was different.
Searching for this yesterday photo returned "about" (googles own word) 317.000 hits, and none of them seem to contain my photo - at least not the first 2 pages. What those hits do contain though are photos of different cinnamon rolls and some pages don't even have any photos on them but speak about cinnamon rolls (kanelbullar in Swedish).
So - it seems to me that googles reverse immage search only go by file name or a guesstimate of what the photo depicts.
My question now is if it's just me or if someone can reproduce this behavior - either with my photo or with any other photo. (I have tried this on various computers with the same result)
Thanks in advance
