"We do not allow linking to our images from external sites, this uses our badwidth which we are charged for and we will take direct action to block these requests."
I was wanting to do a hub on a certain topic, and went to their main website for more info, and I saw this.
Does that mean I can't use their pictures of products, or does it mean I can't put a link to their website in my hub?
Thanks for any help...
They do not allow you to "link" to their image. Whether or not they will allow you to use the image is a different matter.
If the image is necessary, you might e-mail the owner and "ask permission" to use the image. I have done this a couple of times and one said yes with attribution in an e-mail response, which I saved!
The other wanted a price to use theirs, so I chose not to go that route.
Thank you, Michael! Well, since I only know how to link to a page, not an image, I guess I won't worry about it, lol. Well, I know how to do it through something like Photobucket, but I don't think that's what they mean.
That's another thing on my list, I guess...learning to link to images...ugh...
Thanks again--I appreciate it!
Some owners of an image may allow you to download the image and then upload to your site. Just be sure they approve first.
I try not to link to any image since the location could change or be deleted and then I would have an empty space left behind.
The website hates bandwidth thieves. And they are right to do so.

I am working on one of my new websites - and I want to link back to my hubs here. How many times is this OK to do on a website page before it is overkill?

For example, if we have hubs about a relevant topic, can we post a link to our website? I have seen people post their website in there BIO, but I am not sure about links in our "individual hubs". Conversely,...

Years ago, I was already on HP and had numerous links in my articles. However, these links regularly broke. I interrupted my work with HP for several months, and when I came back now, all my items were broken because...
