Website promotion with pictures can give an excellent increase in visitors and, consequently, your income. It is possible if you use unique images. They give a huge advantage. The fact is that the competition in the promotion of images is less than when working with the textual component of the site. It is not necessary that the page with graphic content be in the TOP of the main issue.
But what about those webmasters and optimizers who need to upload thousands of pictures to the site? Make them yourself? Maybe. But it takes a lot of time. Buy on photostocks? Also a good option, but it costs money, and there is no certainty that others will not buy the same image. The third option is to uniquely image. Much has been written about it, very much, but there are few really working methods.
We will first analyze which methods are useless and which will actually be useful.
Color change. Meaningless manipulation, since the image is not analyzed by color data.
Scaling, clipping, stretching-compressing - all this does not work, since it is easily calculated mathematically.
Adding a frame. It has been noticed and tested on experience that the frame sometimes even helps the PS to find duplicates.
Logos, badges and other elements also do not prevent PS from identifying copies.
Most simple filters (blur, noise, etc.), even with a large loss of quality, do not make the image unique.
Saving a graphic file with a different extension is also a waste of time.
And finally - a reflection of the vertical-horizontal. The method works, but it is so common that everyone uses it. In the end, it is impossible to say for sure whether the reflected image will be a double, especially if it has long been in issue and is popular. In addition, the method is not suitable for photographs with text, because it loses readability when mirroring.
Search algorithms are getting smarter, that's a fact. However, there are a couple of "loopholes" that are not yet closed to optimizers. Before we call them, let us analyze how the verification of pictures.
How images are checked for uniqueness
On the basis of this, we present a solution that is working today on the uniqueization of pictures.
In general, this method helps to make a creation, unique from the point of view of search engines, even from an already nailed picture. And finally - a couple of options for uniqueization that can work (try it yourself and write in the comments below about the result).
How to check the processed image for uniqueness?
You can do this through google images (go to images. Google. Com and click the camera icon, paste the link or Download the image file directly from the hard disk):
You can also get an analysis of duplicates on Tineye. com:
You will not receive a ban for using non-unique graphic content. At least for the time being. However, the algorithms are constantly being improved, PS improvements are proceeding at a fast pace. No one knows what innovation will be introduced tomorrow.Even the tricks of uniqueization that are now being applied may soon be a thing of the past. That is why it is worth starting to look into the future and think about where to get valuable unique content. Perhaps he already has it under your nose: you just need to take a camera and be creative.
