Thanx for sharing, +Dan Petrovic :-)

+Enrico Altavilla agree, it's neither an aestetic masterpice nore new for image-seo experts. It's a simple and clean inforgraphic for those who haven't any idea of image optimization. I was asked a lot of times on how Google images works. I wrote a lot of articles about it but usually they have no time to read ;-) They allways want short answers. So in future I give them this infographic to explain ;-)

Exif: in my test Exif-data has no or just a minimal influence. If so it's just a piece in all text-infos about an image (like alt, filename, title-attr. and so on). But I know some people who swear that it's an important factor. So I add it - also because it could be an important factor esp. the geo-data.

Added to our disavow file.
We regularly go through our link profile and remove 5% of the stuff we're not happy with, or looks suspicious. This one somehow slipped through for a long time. White text, white background, exact match anchor text. I asked around the office, nobody knows how this link happened. I find it hard to believe anyone would have done such thing internally. It's visible in our database as an automated Google Webmaster Tools import from 2011.

Findings & Observations  - 
 
This ladies and gentlemen is the most relevant Google image result for a query "white girl".

Background
I noticed a few of my middle eastern followers all used one particular photo as their profile picture and thought the image popped up high in the results for search query "white girl". I went to investigate an found no such result. The results to be of a rather poor quality but at the same time they offered a nice glimpse into those other and overlooked signals Google uses to rank stuff.

This is what I'm hoping will come up in the discussion here.

Search: http://goo.gl/JQyGBe
Images: http://goo.gl/sGtX8d

I tried to improve the quality of my results by adjusting the reading level but instead of academic stuff I got more urban dictionary and eventually - pornography:

Reading Level:
Medium: http://goo.gl/ru0mYQ (best quality of results)
Advanced: http://goo.gl/2aRujJ

Synonym Use
I even tried using a query "Caucasian girl" in hope to end up with higher quality results, but the signals seem to be so strong that it just seem to override and show me the usual "white girl" rubbish that the masses seem to enjoy: http://goo.gl/B73ZyE

Bing Results
Interestingly, Bing seems to provide better quality of results, minus the images: http://goo.gl/yYieCQ

+Nicholas Chimonas this is spot on. I wonder if +Barry Schwartz has run into this in the past?

I actually don't mind this airport. There are plenty of places to sit down have coffee and relax while waiting for your next flight.
