Image sitemap for images without img tag?
« on: August 03, 2011, 08:14:40 PM »
I understand that the generator only creates listings in the image sitemap for items in an IMG tag on a page. That makes sense, however, for a page that has a bunch of thumbnails, with links to open up the larger image, how can I get those larger images included in the sitemap too?

Hello,

images sitemap protocol describes that it should include images located *on* the page rather than linked from the page.

The first jpg is not added into the image sitemap but the second thumbnail is added.

Code: [external links are visible to admins only]
<a id='image1' href='120103-Skitour-Ruetistein_1462.jpg' class='highslide' onfocus='this.blur()' onclick='return hs.expand(this, {autoplay: false})'><img src='thumbs/120103-Skitour-Ruetistein_1462.jpg' width='186' height='124' alt='120103-Skitour-Ruetistein_1462' title='Die Spitze von Schülberg bereits von der Sonne gewärmt' /></a>

But it is possible to add also the 2nd image into a regular site map by adding jpg extension in the option

Add directly in sitemap (do not parse) extensions:
jpg


Is it a good idea to add images in such a way into the site map? What google handles such entries? Any experience?

Only the URLs that you can find in Google's web search (not images search) should be included, i.e. html content pages, pdfs etc.
