My Stash of Photo Citation Opportunities

Local SEO | 25 Feb 2013

Here is my list – sharing is caring : )

We are always looking for new citation opportunities; spots no one else thinks to look. Recently I did a post on video citation opportunities, which I have since put into practice, and am continuing to see great standings.

Since our team is in the digging mood, a couple weeks back we decided to go find some other photo citation opportunities. In the past we had been using only Panoramio, Flickr and Picasaweb, which still seems like more than what our competitors do. However recently Panoramio has tightened up, and we are finding some of the photos we are uploading are getting pulled down. Because we create a brand new account, and submit seldomly, they are being flagged as spam. So, in addition to creating a work around, we set out to find new alternatives. Here is our complete list:

 

Web Property NAP? Geotag? Link?
Flickr.com Yes Yes Yes
Panoramio.com Yes Yes Yes
Picasaweb.Google.com Yes Yes No
Smugmug.com Yes Yes Yes
Locr.com Yes Yes No
EveryTrail.com Yes Yes Yes
23hq.com Yes No Yes
500px.com Yes Yes No
loc.alize.us No Yes No
fotki.com Yes Yes Yes
woophy.com Yes Yes No
thefancy.com Yes No Yes
pikchur.com Yes Yes Yes
picturepush.com Yes Yes No

In case you don’t already know, by NAP I mean is there a place where you can sneak in Name, Address and Phone Number. Geotag means that the site will ask you something like, “where was this photo taken?” and allow you to fill in an address -this is a good thing! And finally, backlink is the opportunity to leave a link going back to your site.

Before uploading the pics, I would suggest running the pics through Exifer, Geosetter or Photolinker so as to embed the image with even more juicy geo data.

Please let me know if I am missing any big ones : )
