Some Flickr tools

Flickr is a great way to keep your website photo gallery current as well as a bevy of other social marketing benefits:

  • Search engine optimization. Tag your images with keywords and fill in your profile with your website or blog address.
  • Share images. People want to see what they’re getting, and you want them to see (and get) you.
  • Provide free images. You can find free images (for use on your blog or other marketing) under Creative Commons by Attribution license.
  • Promotions. You can hold photo or image contests, and use the system to collect submissions.
  • Drive traffic to your site. When people search for images, your images will come up on Google, Yahoo, and other search platforms.
