They are using my picture url to call up my picture on their site: [mysite.com...]
Does anybody know if it is possible to turn this into a pagerank opportunity? Is there something I can do on my side of things since I have no control over their site? Any ideas will be greatly appreciated... What would you do?
There are 3 things you can do.
1) email them and ask then to stop using your image.
2) make it impossible to hotlink your image using htaccess.
3) alter the image to something else with the same file name, you may even be able to alter the image atributes, 1000x1000 pixels should just about do it :)
They use the graphic on thousands of pages? You could have some fun with that, especially if the picture is of decent size.
How about writing a little script that serves a different picture under that URL with each load, to make it attention grabbing.
Put a "(c) yoursite" note on each picture. It could draw visitors to your site.
It all depends on the site context. If the site is about alien sightings, it would be more fun than if the site is selling ben pans.
