I've set a canonical (
.htaccess) header from an image to another one.
has a canonical header to:
site.com/image.jpg (Original image).
However the website only uses the
image-small.jpg and because of that,
image.jpg was never read by Google and is not indexed (only
image-small.jpg is). After about a week, the image was removed from the results.
Is it normal for Google to remove credit from content because the original content is poorly indexed?
