A friend and I use opposite ones and just wondered how they can be so much the same but spelled differently. Do you know?
sort by best latest
Maybe not but it was taking us to a site called Pixaby at first I am sure because I wondered at us having pictures from sites just a letter away from each other and checked it out & it was Pixaby so I see how you could get it wrong. Why I wondere
That's what I thought it was Pixaby initially, but now if you type it wrong, i.e., Pixaby, Google will pull up Pixabay ...unless they changed the spelling of the site? Well, anyway, whatever it is called, it has great free photos you don't attribute
Both of you need to learn to place a URL into your browser URL field, and not into Google, when you want to go to a known site. Google is for searching when you don't know the URL.
Oh really, Glenn. It is just a fast way for me to just Google something at our fingertips and there it is. I understand what you are saying here and thank you for sharing your insight about the URL. We may be getting off topic here a bit.
Very much on topic Faith. This topic is about Pixaby and Pixabay being two very different sites. As long as one bypasses that by letting Google correct their mistakes, one will remain confused. Go to Pixaby directly and you'll see what I'm saying.
Glen, this is a simple question and the answer is there us no such Pixaby, only PIxabay. I'm sorry but if one does not know the URL then no use. Google pulls up the correct site of Pixabay so it's all good. No need to fret over a simple question.
Well my friend does get pictures there? Are they not legal?
Jackie, Your friend cannot be getting pictures there. All they have are paid links to other sites. Did you look at it yourself? You'll see what I mean.
You are right, well when I go there it changes over to Pixabay, don't know why my friend did not notice that. Just she had several & credited to Pixaby but she said she would change that since I found this out. Thanks so much. I thought it very o
Jackie, Pixaby dot com has a list of links as I mentioned before. It does not switch over to Pixabay. Maybe your browser is correcting the spelling. OR - are you typing into Google?, which shows results for assumptions to correct mistakes.
It must be correcting itself now for when I do a search in Firefox with Yahoo or Google in Google it is correcting itself now but my friend I know was getting them through Pixaby and when I wondered at it and tried I saw them too but stuck with mine.
It must have been different when you tried it, because ever since I first checked it, it has been parked and only serving paid ads. By the way, if you want to go to a web site and you know the URL, there is no need to search for it.
Hi Glenn, actually Pixabay is the correct site, but I have been typing Pixaby and Google will pull up the correct site for all of the thousands of gorgeous free photos, and HP recommends Pixabay as one of the legal photos sites to use here on HP.
Faith Reaper - you're telling me nothing new I don't already know. I've been trying to make that clear above. In addition, there is no need to put a URL into Goggle to go to a site. That's why you and Jackie are getting confused.
I see now they aren't thanks and it is correcting itself but it hasn't been and this friend has been using the other awhile now. (Although we both realize now it is the same.)
Yes, when you type in Pixaby on Google, actually Google will pull up the correct site of Pixabay and most don't even realize it, like myself LOL.
Really when you first mentioned this to me(maybe weeks ago) I tried typing in Pixaby and it did not correct itself so I thought it was two sites.
