    Can traffic to a hub be increased by proper photo attribution?

    A few days ago I have changed photo attribution on one of my hubs to a correct one, instead of listing just a name of source I did it correctly, from that day on, this hub's traffic increased from couple of views per day to a hundred a day, and traffic is coming from Google, can this increase be due to correct photo attribution? I just wish I could increase traffic like this to all of my hubs, but it's only one that has increased in traffic like this.

    Maybe, but many of my best performing hubs which get close to a 100 views a day only have simple photo attribution. One of my hubs had its view sky rocket today to over 200 views, from virtually nothing before. As long as you keep writing top quality hubs then the Google traffic should take care of itself. Although your story sounds interesting, I might try your method and see what happens.

    I have been wondering recently about what to add to my photos in terms of text. What do you mean by correct photo attribution? I myself have started putting a short blurb with a photo and putting my hub URL as the source, are you now doing something similar?

      Any photo on the internet is copyright. Even the ones under creative commons license requite correct attribution with a link back to the photographer or owner.

      What I did was instead of writing "Wikimedia Commons" I actually copied and pasted the whole text from "attribution" window.

    I doubt it's related to the photo attribution.

    It's more likely that either the topic is trending right now, or Google has seen that previous visitors had a low bounce rate and a long visit time and decided to send you more traffic.

    Yes sure, it helps the audience get attracted with the hub. But you have to make sure you follow the guidelines in uploading photos. Congratulations on your trafficked hub!
