Tracking Your Images Through Google Search By Image For Theft

If you are like me, you spend a good amount of time either taking your own photos or creating graphics for your sites.  From time to time though, I have found others using my pictures without my permission.  When this happens it really upsets me.

In the past I have tried other image search services, but was not really impressed by the results.  It seemed they would always miss several places that I personally knew the image was placed because I put them there.  My thought always was that if it missed the places I know I put it, how many others did it miss.

Today though, I found Google’s Search By Image. I gave it a test run & was very impressed with the results.  I believe one reason this works better than many of the other image search platforms is that it is directly connected into Google which is the world’s largest search engine of anything.

Here’s a short video walkthrough of it:

Have you tried Google search by image yet?  If so, I’d love to hear in the comments below your thoughts on this feature.  If you haven’t given it a test yet, go try it out & let me know what you think!

  • I’ve been using Tin Eye for quite a while, but I’ll have to check this out too! No reason you can’t have both services in your toolbox.Thanks Jeremy!

  • Wayne- What I found is that this seems to give you many more results than tineye does. When I test my logo tineye found 2. Google found 3 pages.

  • I see what you mean, Jeremy. I searched our log and TinEye found 4, Google found 293!

  • Wow! Awesome Wayne!
