Top 10 Methods to Get Attention on Flickr, All New, Fresh and Updated for 2010
"What is more pleasant than the benevolent notice other men and women take of us, what is more agreeable than their compassionate empathy? What inspires us much more than addressing ears flushed with excitement, what captivates us a lot more than exercising our own power of fascination? What is more thrilling than an whole hall of expectant eyes, what more overwhelming than applause surging up to us? What, lastly, equals the enchantment sparked off by the delighted focus we acquire from those who profoundly delight ourselves? – Interest by other men and women is the most irresistible of drugs. To acquire it outshines receiving any other type of revenue. This is why glory surpasses power and why wealth is overshadowed by prominence."
Caterina Fake, Co-founder of Flickr, 2005.
More than the course of the previous four years, about every single 2 years or so I’ve written a blog post that has been 1 of my most popular entitled "Top 10 Methods to Get Focus on Flickr." It really is been a handful of years, Flickr’s changed a bit, and so I thought I’d take a bit of time nowadays to outline some of the tactics that active power customers use on Flickr to get far more attention for themselves and their photos.
Fundamentally it comes down to a fairly basic equation:
high quality photos + reciprocation² = interest.
But there are lots of other small tricks and suggestions, so let’s get proper into them.
1. The order that you publish your photographs in matters — alot. A lot of people will take 50 snapshots of that killer sunset on their vacation and then upload them at random to flickr. Some are better, some are worse. At Flickr, these that call you make contact with predominantly only see your final photo uploaded or your final 5 photos uploaded (based on their settings) from the popular "your contact’s most current uploads" web page. The other 45 are successfully buried. Always upload what you really feel are your ideal, strongest, and so forth. photographs as the final five and save the quite last spot for the photo you want to pimp the most.
two. Explore, you whore. Explore is a section of Flickr exactly where Flickr highlights what they feel are 500 exciting pictures each and every day.
I employed to have images show up in Discover quite a lot every single week. Then Flickr employees blacklisted me from Explore (and their aid forum) about 7 months or so ago following I wrote a blog post criticizing Flickr staff for nuking a well-known group on Flickr that I administered. Payback’s a bitch, appropriate?
Right after possessing images often seem in Explore every single week since it started, they capped my ass in there at 666 photos (cute, since I’m the devil, get it?). That doesn’t imply that you shouldn’t take into account Explore though. It is probably the fastest way to get a lot of views on any of your images. While everyone bitches about how complete of crappy images Explore is, secretly you know you all adore it when your photos show up there.
Flickr claims to have a "magic donkey" formula which picks the photographs for Discover. This "magic donkey" is actually just an excuse even though to stay away from transparency/accountability about Explore. In basic, the a lot more activity a photo has (activity = faves, comments, notes, blogged, and so forth.) the much more probably it is to show up in Explore. By placing your ideal foot forward (see item 1) and by focusing on advertising a popular photo of yours on a given day, (see under) it just may well get there.
three. Market your photos outside of Flickr. What are you doing to market your photographs outside of Flickr? Some things are super, super straightforward and involve no active participation on your component other than setting some thing up. Popular content aggregators on the net let you to publish your Flickr photos out of Flickr, with worthwhile links back to your pictures on Flickr.
Have you configured Flickr Tab on your Facebookery page however? Why not? It’s totally free and effortless.
Have you signed up for Google Buzz but? Google Buzz does a wonderful job presenting your Flickr uploads and has a killer lightbox feature that makes it possible for people to see your photo Big (if you permit it) on Google Buzz. I’m faving far more Flickr pictures that I’m locating on Google Buzz these days than from any other supply. I fave a lot more photographs from Google Buzz than even Flickr itself.
Have you linked your stream to a FriendFeed account yet?
How about a photoblog? Anybody can set one particular of these up. They are so easy. And they have cool widgets that can do a lot of automated items for you. Check out the widget I’m utilizing for my Flickr pictures (to the proper over there). It’s known as Fidgetr. It automatically pulls in the six most recent images from my "10 faves or much more set" on Flickr, creating certain fresh new images are continuously getting published to thomashawk.com. Do not those massive thumbnails rock!
4. Keep away from watermarking, little-sized low-res photographs, frames and other gimmicky crap. Folks never want to see this stuff. It is a turn off. It pushes them away. Yes, yes, I know, you cry, but the thieves, the photo thieves, they all want to steal from me. GASP!
Get over it. You know what happens when folks steal your stuff? Not too long ago a friend of mine had an image of hers taken by a industrial entity. Do you know what we did? We contacted them, and after a tiny arm-twisting they paid her $700 for her photo. You know why? Due to the fact they had to. Because she could have sued them if not and most likely gotten a lot more than $700 if she was inclined to put the time in it. Courts award statutory damages (not actual damages) for copyright theft. Trust me. If you like getting paid $700 for your pictures, you WANT men and women to steal them. Place a large sign on the photo. "Steal Me, I Dare You."
With tools like Tineye, it really is receiving less complicated and easier and easier for you to discover unauthorized commercial use of your photos on the net.
Positive, some dude is going to print up your huge bouquet of sunflowers shot and hang it in his living area to impress his buddies although they drink beer and watch football and you’ll never ever locate out about that use. Trust me, that dude would not have paid for your photograph in the initial place anyways.
As a byproduct, uploading full, glorious, high res, original photographs to Flickr provides you one particular far more backup of your precious images in the cloud.
five. Moooooooooooo. Do you know about moo cards? Get some. They are cheap — effectively, at least the little ones are low-cost. Give them to absolutely everyone you can. When you are out and about and people speak to you about your photography say (in your ideal Jesse Pinkman from Breaking Bad voice feasible) "Hey Yo, I am slinging this camera, verify me out here Yo," and hand them a moo card. Trust me, it operates.
6. Groups. Most groups on Flickr are a waste of time. Dead groups where photo whores dump billions of images in dead pools that nobody cares about and nobody sees. Your photographs are swiftly buried deep, deep, in the pool, never ever to be observed or heard from once again. Stay away from these groups. They typically have names like "Baskets! Show us all your photos of baskets!" or "You Say Tomato, I Say Tomato, show us all your photos of tomatoes!" Never just dump your photo into 30 random groups.
As an alternative choose a few meaningful groups and really hang out there and interact with folks. You may well consider a neighborhood group for where you reside. Or a photo critique group. Or what ever. But discover a few active groups (which means a number of new threads are engaged in a day) and participate. I belong to a quantity of groups on Flickr, but 95% of my Flickr group time is spent in the critique group DMU. (Note, DMU is uncensored and not for every person. Remember above where I told you that Flickr nuked one of our groups? yep.)
7. Fave it Forward! Have you heard of Billy Wilson? Simply because if you have not, you will quickly. Not to be confused with his second cousin and other Flickr legend Billy Warhol, Billy Wilson is the original Flickr fave machine! Billy has favorited a lot more photos than any person else on Flickr and he’s showing no signs of slowing down. Want to know what takes place when you fave practically 200,000 pictures on Flickr? Just verify out Billy’s stream. How’s that for receiving some interest? Fave Billy Fave!
Now, you do not in fact have to copy the Billy Wilson favoriting machine. He’s an original and that’s his gig. But. Do not be stingy with your faves either. If you like anything fave the hell out of it. You can start off here at my "10 faves or much more set" if you’d like. You have an unlimited amount of faves to give out on Flickr. Folks adore acquiring faves. People reciprocate.
Be like Billy, fave it forward.
Very same goes for comments too. If you like anything say so. Possibly you can be the next "nice photo" guy. Or perhaps you can be recognized as that super hot chick who writes deep, meaty, insightful, witty, quirky comments on people’s pictures — especially then, you are going to be loved.
eight. Tag for discovery. You know how men and women discover a lot of of your pictures? Search. Do not be "that guy" who tags the 300 most commonly used keywords and phrases to your photographs no matter what they are. I don’t want to see that photo of your bikini clad girlfriend when I’m browsing for puppy. Excellent boy.
But. Be descriptive. Be certain to tag the location the photo was taken. The topic matter. Anything relevant that men and women may possibly use to search for your photo. Take into account geotagging as properly. The a lot more discoverable your photos are, the much more most likely they’ll be observed on Flickr.
Oh, also keyword at the file level, not on Flickr itself. It really is a lot quicker to keyword and geotag that way and also when Flickr ends up nuking your account (KABOOM!) you will not drop all of those tags and geotags that you worked so difficult on adding to your photographs. When you tag/geotag at the file level, these tags/geotags are automatically populated at Flickr when you upload your pictures. Study about my workflow here for a lot more on that.
9. Are you allowing the search engines to index your photos? If you aren’t, you should be. You can check your settings on that right here. I’d estimate that about 20% of the targeted traffic to my personal Flickr images comes from search engines. Oh, and whilst you are in your settings, you may want to take a second and turn safe search off, we’re all 18+ adults right here correct, even if Flickr does treat you as a child by default? Filtered Flickr sucks.
10. Particular subjects just look to garner far more attention. In basic I’ve found that certain subjects have a tendency to do better on Flickr than others. Your (and my) Egglestonian masterpiece of the sidewalk curb? Not so significantly.
But. Subjects that appear to garner a lot of attention. Appealing girls (quantity a single consideration getter on Flickr, specifically self portraits), motion or blur, silhouettes, images with stories in the description, some HDR, bokeh, abstract architectural photography, bridges, cityscapes, artwork by famed graffiti artist Banksy, you get the notion.
Also sometimes an exciting hunting thumbnail will pull men and women in as nicely.
Properly there you have it. 10 guidelines to get you more attention on Flickr. Use them in good well being and with excellent organization.
Disclaimer: remember my equation above? "quality photographs + reciprocation² = focus" It doesn’t matter how significantly perform you do optimizing the promotion of your photos if they suck. Locate your voice. Make your style. Produce your art. But place time, power and pride in the perform that you share. Make the world a far more beautiful place with the remarkable function that you are capable of generating. The very best photos in the planet have however to be taken.
Oh, and one final way to get a lot of attention on Flickr? Write long blog posts about obtaining interest on Flickr. It performs each and every time. )
You can find me on Flickr right here.
