My Images Are Ranking Over My Post! Whats Going On?

Last Update: March 28, 2018

Hi everyone! I just wanted to share something rather strange with you. I'm hoping that someone out there might be able to shine a bit of light on this subject, because it has me a little baffled.

A few days ago I wrote a review page for a product that I have been researching. After publishing the post I shared it on social media, just as I would normally.

Today I checked to see if the review had been indexed and where in the search results it was ranked. What I found was something that I had not seen before.

The post images that I included within the post are currently ranking higher than the actual post itself.

Take a look...


I have written quite a lot of posts in my time, but I have never experienced this. I have searched various keywords that I wanted to rank for with this review and my post images are all being indexed above the actual post.

This might only be temporary I guess. I have never seen this happen before!

Have you ever experienced anything like this?

I have a picture from when I first began that ranked before any article but I never thought much about it.

Tried and true

Hey Andrew,
Great news. You just never know what might happen and then
the unexpected happens. You just NEVER know what will will
happen next!

Cheers,

Hey, Andrew, I have noticed this as well. Maybe Google likes our images more than our content? lol

I'm sure there is nothing to worry about.

I'm sure now you have brought this to people's attention that they may well notice the same thing happening to their sites.

Maybe so. Its not so useful when I want to rank my post though! Oh well, perhaps things will change over the next few days. Google has a habit of moving things around, don't they!

I know what you mean but there are no time constraints when it comes to Google and how it does things. Just need to be patient!

Google likes images and texts as you know, some it might be to do with their algorithm, unless someone else has a different idea

I always thought that content would outrank everything else? The page that ranks above my post is just a single image on a page. My post is over 1000 words long and has lots of images! I don't understand. Thanks for your input though.
