This is a little strategy I have been using lately and it works quite well. In fact, it is probably one of the fastest ways to build high authority free backlinks I have seen yet to date. And I am talking about when people copy your images. As you know on this blog almost 95% of the images, including the featured image you see above, are created by me. Which means I don’t want people using them, as I have put a lot of work into creating them. Check out this trick I use below to get a backlink whenever someone copies one of my images.
Nobody likes a copycat. But in fact most of the time when someone copies your images it is most likely because they are lazy, or didn’t actually know they should’t do it. When I used to work for an SEO agency, I have seen entire websites copied word for word, and after emailing the owner they were totally surprised and thought it was fine. Mind boggling yes, but be polite and don’t assume they are stealing. They might not know any better.
