I use Flickr a fair bit now for uploading photographs. Sometimes to share what I have been doing, other times so I have access to images I can use on this blog or other sites.
I check the stats now and again (as I have a Pro account) and generally get between 150-300 views a day.
Yesterday however the stats went through the roof with 1300 odd views!
No idea why.
Unless someone (or some people) were really keen on flicking through my photographs, I am suspecting that some kind of bot was going through (and downloading) my images.
My images are copyright me, however I do licence them under a Creative Commons licence so that people in education can use them without having to pay a fee or royalty. However I don’t licence them for commercial use.
It will be interesting to see what happens today.
