Is There Any Possibility At Faa To Prohibit External Links?
Some days ago Robin-Lee complained that her images are linked to various websites without permission. Here, for FAA galleries a feature like at SmugMug.com should be implemented that the owner can decide to allow or prohibit external links for her/his own images.
I appreciate any statement from the FAA management.
Beth, changing slightly the name sounds as if it could be a good solution...but on the other side you are going to loose all your ranking criteria at FAA (sales, comments, votes, contests, features...etc)...that means if you are prominently listed with google image searches, have good tags and descriptions everybody can grab your image, hotlink it and can (mis)use it for its own benefit!
yeah you brought them down with a thud! They looked to have a site that was basically scraped info from just about any site dealing with NY, this gets jumbled into some form of sense to then boost rankings for other sites targeting NY as a keyword. I bet the owners didn't even blink when it happened, knowing this black hat link building model included getting shut down.
the image i put in the post above, is still valid as a hotlink of sorts, even after the infringing domain has been shut down.
I would like to get the official word on what counts as an image view and if the image view count is a consideration of the FAA search engine. Lets start with if the image above counts as an image view.
inline with that thought, i'm going to add my own linked image so i can watch the count, but damn this looks huge for something so easily hotlinked.
I already have some verification on the image count from posting my image above, I also noticed that the image view counts in the FAA graphs have dropped from a few hundred per our to 30 or so, so it seems there was a change to what is reported, but i could be very wrong. So that question would be what counts as an image view.
thanks for looking in. Was that something that was updated in the last few months?
I'm currently looking for a thread on the search and keyword density question, but it's not coming up using the forum search case in point was the search term lightning http://fineartamerica.com/art/all/lightning/all hardly low hanging fruit for FAA improvement, but there is no reason for the roses to be showing on the first page. The user has about 1/2 a page of keywords of which lightning is but one keyword. Why is this showing on the first page, if the keyword density defines it as "Pink Roses" at about 2% of page text?
