Search results could be more exact in image galleries.

Hi,
My website contains a lot of photographs which I am gradually captioning.
Your wonderful new search facility is picking up these captions but sadly only points to a gallery that contains said picture.
Would it be possible for the actual, individual picture to be returned as the result of the search? Assuming this is the case, would this make it more likely that Google and Bing would index that individual photo as their result of a search ?

Regards

Hi Andy,

This is only possible if you add a separate image with a textbox below it as a caption.

If you add the caption to Image inside Image Gallery widget, it will show the entire gallery in search results.

Hope that helps.

To be honest, this wouldn't really be possible with the way the search works.

No, this would have no affect on Google. With Google and all other search engines you should have the caption set which will be used as the image ALT attribute as well. The text content on that specific page would also help with how Google and other search engines index this page.
