Flickr has established itself as the most popular site for photo sharing. As of October 2009, it was reported that there was over 4 billion photos uploaded on Flickr, and according to the Flickr website, 4,768 photos have been uploaded in the last minute.
With such high numbers, it is obvious that the potential traffic when using Flickr is incredibly high. In order to take full advantage of this traffic opportunity, you must first learn how to have a popular profile. It may take a little extra time to organize your profile just right, but the end results will be worth it.
Many have seen this coming for a long time, but its now all but official: any photo that a user geotags on Flickr can be accessed through Google Maps. This means that all photos that are public across the Google database can now be accessed through a list associated with every appropriate address.
When searching on Google Maps, a list of photos imported via the Flickr API appears and allows users to access visual information to better inform them about the location they are currently viewing.
Every business needs Internet exposure in order to increase the traffic to its website and to increase its customer base. As a plastic surgeon, you are no different, but getting links and content can be a tedious process. Flickr offers amazing potential in both of these areas. More than just a social image and video site, Flickr has a wealth of members who will be more than happy to provide you with not just photos for your website, but with their thoughts, reviews, and experiences, and then send you links, as well.
