[Mediawiki-l] google images ignores wiki images

a comment and  a question regarding images:

I have turned an existing website into a wiki that offers basically the same contents (and also looks more or less the same) as  before. Using an external  hit counter I noticed a decrease in users finding my site. Closer inspection reveals that there are almost no visitors from google images while before about one third found my pages because they were searching pictures. I suspect that this is due to the arcane path to the image files or could there be another reason? Or is Mediawiki consciously discouraging image search?
