|<image:loc> - solution for dynamically loaded images in a page? NOPE||malbrecht||6/3/12 9:58 AM|
I would like to ask about your experience in using <image:loc> in sitemaps.
I was intrigued when I read this blog entry (http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2010/04/adding-images-to-your-sitemaps.html) where google shows an interest in receiving image information via the sitemap protocol. I was intrigued, because it would solve a problem with my site.
I am a photographer and publish photos on my site http://zapalote.com (see http://zapalote.com/main.html for the list of projects)
Because of flexibility, I decided to load the images in a given project dynamically via a json file that gets processed via jquery. The drawback of this is that google never indexed any of the images -- too bad :-/
So, when I read about <image:loc> in sitemaps I thought this would be the solution. I prepared a sitemap with all the images included in each project (http://zapalote.com/sitemap.xml) and submitted it for consideration. The result: google doesn't index any image at all.
Just in case you were wondering: the images have all meaningful names, such as patagonia-guanaco-row-by-the-water.jpg
What is your experience? Am I doing something wrong?
I did read the FAQs and searched through the forums but found no answer to this.

thanks for the compliments!
Well, yes I figured I could not expect the algorithms to interpret the ajax/json process. That is why I was hopeful about <image:loc>. BTW, loading images dynamically from a list is not that unusual, I have seen other people using xml files for that -- and, ajax also gives the possibility to randomize the order of the show sequence, and ... right, I guess I will have to give up :-/
