How To Get Backlinks Through Reverse Image Search

If you’ve been creating infographics for a while, chances are other bloggers are using them without linking to you. This is particularly true if you’ve created infographics or custom images.

Here’s how to get backlinks from your custom images.

Go on Google and do an image search of your visuals. Here’s an example of an infographic from HubSpot. 

I’ll use this image to run a reverse Google Image search. To do that, right-click on the image you want to search, then click “search image on Google.”

As you can see, several websites are using that image. 

I’ll visit the websites next. Notice that the first site uses that infographic in this post without crediting HubSpot anywhere.

The next step would be to contact those editors requesting they credit your site for the image.

Bonus Tip: You can also use a tool called TinEye to conduct reverse image searches. This tool tends to be more thorough than Google.
