In my Google Webmasters account, in Optimization section, under HTML improvements I see that Google has indexed more than 100 links complaining that these links has no Title associated with them (Missing title tags).

However, these links all result in thumbnails of images and they are served as MIME type (Internet Media Type) of "image/png", or "image/jpg", etc.

What's wrong here? How should I tell Google that an image can't have a title tag?

Note: An example link can be see here.

  • I assume you mean Google Webmaster Tools rather than Google Analytics? Anyway this seems like a bug with GWT. Jun 29, 2012 at 13:47
  • Yep, sorry @DisgruntledGoat. I updated the question. Jun 29, 2012 at 13:49

It's ok, webmaster tool is still buggy with Mime type file. (I've got the same problem)

It should be corrected soon.

  • I think I'm fine with treating this as a Google's bug rather than a technical misunderstanding of mine ;). Aug 28, 2012 at 11:20
