I have hundreds maybe thousands of images saved to My Pictures on my computer. Sheer laziness is probably the reason I have so many. It's just easier to search Google images than it is to scroll through the colossal number of images I have stored. Besides, with Google image search, I'm able to type in the exact word or phrase that describes the pic I'm looking for.......Did the light bulb come on yet?
When downloading images to your computer make sure you give them a quality keyword rich name. Don't just save them with the generic name usually offered right before you select the "save as" button.
Naming your images properly populates greater keywords into your post, and also promotes Google Image traffic. The same Google keywords you typed in to find your image may be the very words that link that particular image back to your site.
