It is possible to upload the image from the local drive to the imgur.com and get back the direct link of the image in matlab .m scipt?
I would like to use the direct link received for doing reverse image search by google

Yes, though with some of those sites the first link they give you is the whole page with lots of ads and other things. That's why they don't work when they try to attach them here and I have to fix them by first going to that link and clicking on it to bring it up in a popup window and then right clicking on it and selecting View image. Then it usually brings up the image alone in it's own window and you can get the "real" url of the image alone from the address bar.

Since IMGUR uses REST based API you can do it in MATLAB.
Best way to start is trying to replicate the Python library: IMGUR Python.
