Default Images For Blog


I am trying to find a good site to get free stock photography for my blog. I looked at Flikr, but I really don't know if I am allowed to use other's images in my blog. Any thoughts?

Thanks! Nick

Photos from Flickr are okay to use on your blog. They're actually part of Creative Commons, which allows you to use them. Yahoo! just came out with a really cool plugin for blogs that allows you to really easily put the photos in your blog. Check out shortcuts.yahoo.com...I use it on several of my blogs and it's great.

SEO since 1996, I've been doing internet marketing. I have the experience as an SEO expert, as well.

Yep, you can use Flickr through Creative Commons but you have to make sure to reference the photo credits. Here is a great plugin for Wordpress that I have found helpful. You might not get the best pics from this plugin but they are good enough and they automatically add the credits. Check it out at:


Also, here's a great reading on how to find Flickr pics: http://www.skelliewag.org/a-complete...images-162.htm

You can also find some good photos at http://www.sxc.hu/

When searching for photos on Flickr go to advanced search and check the box "Search only photos with creative common license". Then attribute the photos and you'll be fine
