When you upload an image, it has title, description, alt text, fill them out as if it was your article, alt text are your keywords.

Indeed... At the core of Google's ranking algo it is still primarily based on links. So if you want an image to rank higher on the serps then the ranking of the webpage which the image is on contributes - provided the image is relevant.

To ensure the image is relevant you should use alt, title, description attributes for the image ensuring that it contains LSI keywords which you want it to rank.

In otherwords Google ranks your page for a particular keyword and notes that a particular image is highly relevant due to the association of the meta data of the image to the keyword which the page is ranking for...

In addition if you allow people to share your image i.e. on social networks e.g. pinterest then that also provides links which tells G that this image is really good for the specific keywords assigned.

I do not believe image views/impressions makes any significant difference with images ranking higher on the serps... That is too easy to fake and it does not tell G if the image is relevant... The way G can tell if the image is relevant is if the image is being used by other sites as well as if the image is on pages which are ranking - noting that the image must be strongly associated with the keyword for which the page ranks for....

As we all know that the most important element for ranking in Google is keywords and for images we need to use Alt text. This Alt text tells what the image is about and also helps the search engine spiders to understand the image.

For example:
<img src="rising sun.jpg" alt="rising sun" title="Early morning rising sun">

Note: Title and alt text cannot be the same, they have to be different.

To make an image rank well, fill out all the information for it, alt text, description etc. This is what gets it ranked on Google and will make it show up in Google images searches :)

Complete your on-page optimization with proper keyword Alt image tags and only use unique images. Google does not show favor to images that aren't unique.

I don't that you need to care about the image because it'll will rank higher whenever you article was pull up to higher position. Thus, you just consider some trick of your image optimization such as

1- your keyword in image name (yourkeyword.jpg)
2- optimize image such as use keyword in alt, title, and image description...

In addition to the standard adding of ALT text and titles, try also linking to the image from some piece of content on your site using anchor text to fit what you're solidifying with your ALT text and title, though image ALT text is the most powerful way to do this.
