I have been told that having different images for the options of the same product (eg. a faucet in 2 different finishes) will effect googlebots view of your shopping at because:
1) The image of a chrome faucet could show up as a black faucet
2) The meta tag tile would have to be changed from "Faucet - Chrome" to just "Faucet" and therefore people searching for the one in chrome wouldnt populate. Does anyone have any insight as to whether this is true or is a good idea?
