One More Google Penalty to Avoid: Image Mismatch

Google has added a new Manual Action penalty – image mismatch. You can receive an image mismatch penalty when the images on your site do not match what is shown in the Google search results.

  5. Cloaking and/or sneaky redirects

The Manual Actions may impact the entire site (they are listed in the Site-wide matches section) or individual URLs or sections of a site (they are listed in the Partial matches section).

SEO means “search engine optimization,” and while search engines are alive and popular, SEO will be prosperous. As we can see Google is very much alive.
