When requesting permission to use a photo - how best to describe Hub Pages? Page rank? Traffic?
What statistic do you think are critical to the owner of the photo to persuade them to allow the use of the photo on Hub Pages?
I don't think they care about the page rank or traffic or how popular the site is. They just want you to be honest and tell them you think their article is good, which is how you found them.
Like "I am making an article about XYZ and was searching for the perfect picture for it when I came across yours. You have a wonderful article about it and I was hoping I could ask if I could use your picture for my article?
None. I would not mention it at all.
I would use Zemanta (a blog/email editor plugin) to search for freely usable pictures of the topic you want, unless of course, you need a very specific picture not available elsewhere.
I would not overplay the traffic or page rank element, or they might get the idea that they want a licence fee in return?

I just received a pleasant surprise while checking my stats, which I admit I do more often than I should. But one of my best performing hubs got 10 times the amount of traffic it usually receives, from 200-300 to over 3300. This has happened before but I figure it was a share that begot more...

One again, I have fallen victim to the whims of Google. My top earning article is responsible for half of my total views over my HP career. It was the first to be HubPro edited. It was the first to be moved to a niche site. It's been getting very dependable traffic since June. Last Tuesday, the...

Hi,I have been a member of Hubpages for a while. I have a bunch of hubs, published on various accounts, and since the Google slap, have noticed that my hub views, which weren't all that great before, have now dropped to almost nothing. On average, I seem to be getting about 1/2 a view a day per...
