    When I used phpBB and added images to posts there was a little box in which to write a comment about the image, google would find this and the image would show up in GoogleImage searches which matched all or part of the image comment.

    Is there anyway of doing something like that in Xenforo?

    There is no option for that.

    Could it be a suggestion for a future feature? Lots of people search media when looking for something ... having media from your forum showing up can help with getting extra exposure.

    If you'd like to possibly see it in the future, make a thread in XenForo Suggestions.

    If you just insert the attachment into the message and type your "caption" near/around it, Google should pick that up.

    In addition to what Mike wrote, if the post only contains an attachment, Google will use the thread title to index the image.
