OK, I do my very best to keep everything up and running with no broken links. The number of broken links on 300 hubs that are filled with dozens of photos is running about 5 a week - one a day.
I have started no longer linking to the exact photo and now I am going to no longer link - simply give the name of the source.
I want to give credit where credit is due but this is too time consuming.
Your thoughts and experiences? Or am I just being a grumpy Grandmother?
Totally get that. I feel like I'm constantly getting broken links.
Glad its not just me that found that photo links seem to be broken either as soon as you put them in, or soon after. I am tending now to drop the hyperlink and just name the source.
That seems a shame. It's rough on the photographer, who's a fellow creative artist, after all.
Where are you getting the photos? With Flickr photos, I never link to the photo itself, I always link to the photographer's photostream (their main page). That way, I'll only get a broken link if they actually leave Flickr completely.
