Google image search and this site

You can do a google search of my blog using the handy textbox found at the top of this page. Now that Google knows about me, this is working well for text searches to find blog entries. However, none of my images were coming up in a Google image search. This is probably because the images were titled "photo sharing" by the Flickr photo blog tool. Additionally, Flickr photos have non-meaningful names. In short, Google didn't have much to work with. So, I changed my Flickr photo blogging preferences to put the image title as the photo's title. This should work for future images. Additionally, I went back and fixed the titles for old blog entry images. We'll see if Google finds my images now.
