Image search is a great tool that allows you to discover images from thousands of different sources across the internet. Thanks to image SEO, it has become easier. How about in the reverse situation? You stumble across an image and wonder where it came from or any more details about it. This is where reverse image search is used.
Depending on the mobile browser you use, it’s a bit difficult to do a Google reverse search. The simplest solution is to download Google Chrome for both Android and iOS. On PC, Google reverse image searching is simple. Just go to images.google.com and click on the camera icon in the search bar. Upload a file or add the image URL and search.
How Does Google Reverse Image Search Work?
Performing a reverse image search allows you to take an image and find where it was originally published, other pages that have published the same image, different sizes of the same image used and similar images. This is carried out by advanced algorithms to analyze the image submitted and find others similar to it.
