My Google Images referrals started to drop way back when, when the image-hover iframe thing was instituted.
I simply hadn't noticed because I didn't look in my stats for the effects of this measure.
I'm repeating myself, but I've gone from 10,000 referrals per month to 150 - most of the damage coming from the image-hover.
150 referrals is just piddly stuff.
The world is changing, folks; Pinterest has opened the doors wide to grand scale image plunder. Bing and Google are fighting for their share of the loot.
Desktops are becoming a thing of the past, the music business has imploded... the image business is being dispossessed from its rightful owners.
Who will sue Bing/Google/Pinterest for copyright infringement, and establish a legal precedent?
