I read that publishing images for free use on Wikipedia is noted by Google, may help SEO. Have no idea if that is true or not (though you can ask for attribution to your site when others re-use the photo you put on Wikipedia, a little free publicity).
Does anyone know if using Wikipedia images i.e. copying the image, putting on page, not linking to the original image - all allowed under the Creative Commons free use licensing agreement (GNU Free Documentation License)- affects SEO?
I have around 10% Wikipedia photos on my site, the rest originals taken by me or others and protected by copyright.
