An image search is no different as it is referred to search on a term or finding images against the text you have typed. However, if you have an image and want to know more about it, like its origin or similar images available on the internet? Then you have to perform a reverse image search.

Why a reverse image search is important?
A properly done reverse image search can land you plenty of benefits.

A blessing in disguise is ‘reverse image search for a website owner, how? By performing it one can easily find out who is using your images without your consent. Now you can either ask them to take them down from their website or trade with them. By agreeing with them on putting the reference link of your website against each of the images they are using or else you will report their website for a copyright claim.
2- Helps identify fake profiles or posts on social media?
Social media has changed the world of business all over the world. However, keeping the content original has become difficult. Businesses are using the profiles to connect with people at the individual level, however, there are people who can fake your identity. Performing a reverse image search can help in identifying such fake accounts or profile where people are using your images or videos and try to mislead your users.
3- Explore products left without proper labeling?
Using reverseimagesearch.sc you can easily search for the product missing proper labeling or the owner tag and/or trace its origin in less than a few seconds. I personally find it very helpful to find the origin of recipe pictures I have just downloaded from the internet randomly.
