  • Dave Elliott: its normally from google image search i believe.
  • Moeez Bin Hamid: or maybe from google plus page? ;
  • Edwin Jonk: I just checked my own site in GWT and the all the links come from Google Plus.  ;Not sure about Google Image. I don't think they are reported in GWT, but for sure you will see referrals from Google Images (in GA for example).

    Also keep in mind that "links to your site" both report dofollow and nofollow links. ;
  • Moeez Bin Hamid: I see, Thank you + ;:) ;
