Image sitemaps:

how to increase the likelihood that your images can be found in Image Search results. Additionally, you can use Google image extensions for sitemaps to give Google more information about the images available on your pages. Image sitemap information helps Google discover images that we might not otherwise find (such as images your site reaches with JavaScript code), and allows you to indicate images on your site that you want Google to crawl and index.
You can use a separate sitemap to list images, or you can add image information to an existing sitemap. The following example shows a sitemap entry for the page http://example.com/sample.html, which contains two images.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<urlset xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9"
You can list up to 1,000 images for each page, using the syntax outline in the example above!

XML namespace


Image tag definitions

<image:image>YesEncloses all information about a single image. Each <url> tag can contain up to 1,000 <image:image> tags.
<image:loc>YesThe URL of the image.
In some cases, the image URL may not be on the same domain as your main site. This is fine, as long as both domains are verified in Search Console. If, for example, you use a content delivery network such as Google Sites to host your images, make sure that the hosting site is verified in Search Console. In addition, make sure that your robots.txt file doesn’t disallow the crawling of any content you want indexed.
<image:caption>OptionalThe caption of the image.
<image:geo_location>OptionalThe geographic location of the image. For example, <image:geo_location>Limerick, Ireland</image:geo_location>.
<image:title>OptionalThe title of the image.
<image:license>OptionalA URL to the license of the image.

A complete example of an Image Sitemap for a site (www.example.com) with 1 page and 1 image could therefore be:
<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″?>
<urlset xmlns=”http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9″
<image:caption>Fat Jack Russell Chewing a Bone in Soho Square on October 22nd 2012</image:caption>
<image:geo_location>Soho Square, Soho, London</image:geo_location>
<image:title>Jack Russell Chewing Bone</image:title>
