    Question Image Name?

    I have a question;

    Do image names have any effect on link value from outside sites?

    for example if a site linked to me using image1.gif would the link be worth any more if the image name was keywords_keyword2_keyword3.gif?

    I was just wondering as ALT tags on the image increase the valude of the link so it would be quite interesting if the image name would.

    Thanks

    I was under the impression that ALL 'alt' & 'title' tags should, along with file names, be relevent to the site and content.

    Yes, the question is whether or not they are as important for the linking-to site as any anchor text, which is extremely important.
