The reverse image is a lot like the normal keyword search, but instead of using words/keywords, you get to search for images instead, which is pretty cool.
The search results give you details of the image sizes, description, and the exact pages with links where you can find them.
This can be extremely useful in finding out facts about the image, and copyright status and tracking copyright violations on your intellectual property, allowing you to identify if other people are using it.
This can be done on Google, Bing, or any major search engine.
