    Definitely try and figure out how to get updated bylines in your content. The search engines are placing more and more emphasis on fresh content, so it’s definitely one factor that goes into ranking your site.

    By localized site links are you referring to a SERP where a local site or local query has site links showing up for the specific phrase?

    I used to have decent traffic from Google Images from a spectacular photograph of the Marina Bay Sands hotel in Singapore. In the meantime the photograph was copied by a dozen or more other websites and Google now sends the traffic to them…

    The first to hijack my traffic was a spam site. I published the according analytics chart on my post with the original photograph http://travelmemo.com/asia/singapore/marina-bay-sands-hotel-singapore-esplanade

    After a few days Google noticed and the traffic came back. But then the traffic got hijacked again by less spammy sites and it has not returned ever since.

    Do the new rules imply that if say the organizors of the Singapore F1 race copy my photograph (without my permission) onto their site, they are still entitled to the traffic from Google Images because they are a more valuable landing page for a given topic?

    Should the image traffic not always go to the photographer that posted the original image in the first place? Obviously it may be a bit of a challenge to find the author of an image on the internet but then again they are Google, aren’t they?
