Are You GeoTagging Your Photos for SEO? Photos uploaded to your Flickr & Picasaweb can be geotagged for Local SEO optimization A slideshare presentation about Local SEO from Frederick Web Promotions firstname.lastname@example.org
Geotagging Flickr & Picasaweb• If you run a local business, you need what I call "Geographical Google Juice"• Upload photos, graphics, cropped screenshots and geotag them.• The best way to do this is to use a smartphone (assuming GPS in enabled on the phone at the time you took the picture and turned on when you upload to picture to Flickr and Picasaweb)• But once uploaded both Flickr and Picasaweb provide a means to "place your photos on a map"
What is Geotagging?• Wikipedia says:• Geotagging (also written as GeoTagging) is the process of adding geographical identification metadata to various media such as a geotagged photograph or video, websites, SMS messages, QR Codes or RSS feeds and is a form of geospatial metadata. These data usually consist of latitude and longitude coordinates, though they can also include altitude, bearing, distance, accuracy data, and place names.
Geotagging with Flickr• Once uploaded to Flickr a pic can be “added to your map”
GeoTagging only accurate within 600 yards (give or take)• Often when you “add your photo to a map” with either Flickr or Picasaweb, you’ll find the marker somewhere in the middle of the street, just outside your office.• Foursqure also is only accurate to within 600 to 1000 yards, the next screenshot sequence is to show you how to drag that marker to your exact office street address
