Summary0000595: Demote CMS template images
DescriptionPerforming image searches, most of the returned results are images part of the website standard CMS template, such as company logo, navigation icons and banners.
These have no relation at all with the query, but they appear in every page of the entire website and thus are always picked up by YaCy and thrown into the search results.

I'd like if this ticket could be the incipit to start some thinkering on how to demote these images.

To give you a pragmatic idea of what I'm talking about, I uploaded some of those images which frequently pollute YaCy search results because they appear so often throughout the websites being part of their CMS.

A first approximation step to get YaCy return overall better results:
from the search results, filter off those images which link back to the website homepage. These are likely CMS logos, nav buttons (such as "return home"), banners and other unwanted images polluting search results.

This might also filter a marginal portion of healthy images, but overall I believe the results will be much cleaner with this approach than they currently are.
