How stupid is that? I posted a badge of 100 photos one time then my page rank died my visitors visited 1 page on average and google put a flickr page above all my blog posts for the keywords used.
I only wanted the full size jpeg linked but it could not do that. It would be much nicer if the flickr page was on the users own domain. Or if it would look exactly like the rest of the users website. And give us the full size jpg links. The old Flickr crew obviously didn't have the resources for that. Sure you can demand a link back, But then you give me 500 banners to pick from to put on my own pages. AND allow me to submit my own "flickr banner design" on a yes/no basis. Maybe pay a referral fee?
Lets imagine each yahoo profile could have a whole shop attached to it. Each image on flickr could be a stock photo, each posting written could be priced content. Give the shop a yahoo publishers 246x60 banner. Then not
mix the items all together as one service but make a separate index with everything in it. "more items by this publisher
" linked to the themed personal mini shop. Just like those huge portals yahoo makes only smaller. I figure the lot of us could be trained to do a much better job at making our website. A good interface could make it all to obvious. +Good travel stories are more expensive as traveling.
Hell this "how to make money online with hosting pictures" -posting is probably worth more as a dollar! I could write another one and waist some serious time to earn almost nothing! *inserts inline flickr referral link* and that would be much more worthy a service to all stuff our nose in to say WTF a few times. You knwo the drill. :)
Why cant I attach a domain name to this thing what kind of sales people are you? Do I have to type everything out? The fact that your not paying me is not half as bad as not giving me the tools to pay myself. And I don't claim to know how either! Teach me, give me buttons to click! Why am I not sending out a newsletter to my non yahoo contacts?
If I can make a page with an entrance fee - I'm going to make that page. Lots of peeps know an interesting thing or 2 that they are not going to share for free. Lets give you an example of that? I should charge you at least 5$ for just this line:
