Images were not index yet.

Hi Guys,
My site and pages were got index by google, but none of the images were indexed yet.
What would be the possible reason for this?
Do I have to do something else for indexing images?
By the way, My site is only 4 days old.

Indexing sometimes takes time my friend. You just have to wait and be patient. As long as you have optimized the page where the image is found, then Google will rank your site soon. Or if you are still not satisfied with my opinion, then you can look for articles on how to speed up page indexing. I've came across one just by looking at your message, though I'm not sure whether I'm allowed to place the link of this article...

It's a new blog, you can't expect everything to be indexed in the first week. Just provide fresh content and focus on getting traffic.

Do you have a robots.txt file? Make sure you are not blocking the "images" folder where the images are uploaded to.

With the proper use of ALT tag you can easily index the images in the search engine only when crawler visit your website.

Creating a sitemap with images ensures that google will add them as soon as possible (usually around 3-5 days), but doesn't guarantees indexing. Don't forget to upload (or update) sitemap in webmaster tools.

Code example:
Code:
<urlset xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9" xmlns:image="http://www.google.com/schemas/sitemap-image/1.1"> <url> <loc>https://example.com/</loc> <image:image> <image:loc>https://example.com/image.jpg</image:loc> <image:title>example: image title</image:title> </image:image> </url> </urlset>

Google started to indexing my images. So everything seems to be alright now.
By the way thanks for this coding. It's new to me.
