As the SEO Specialist at Tillison Consulting, I often get asked about new avenues businesses can explore to aid their SEO. Flickr is the latest avenue to be added to my suggested list.
Flickr can be used for SEO purposes by including images in your SEO plan. However, as with all SEO endeavours it has to be done in a natural way in order to get the benefit from it.
Like Pinterest, Flickr is an image based platform where you can share and search images. However, the way you upload images and link them differs from Pinterest as Flickr has much stricter controls on what and how you upload.
In order to use Flickr, you will need the images saved as files on your PC/Laptop ready to upload. You cannot simply add a photo using a button as you do with Pinterest.
Here are some steps to take when adding photos to Flick for SEO purposes:
Below are a few examples of some photo stream on Flickr that have been set up:
The most important thing to remember is to use the account naturally and not just for SEO purposes. This goes for all avenues in your SEO plan. By behaving naturally you’ll get genuine people following your account and sharing your photos.This interaction has a massive impact on your SEO, think of it as society doing some of the work for you.
