Ways To Drive Traffic To Your Free Image Hosting or Wallpaper Site

In my previous article i wrote an article in the title “Make more money with Your Free Image Hosting Website“. Its time to see the possible ways for driving traffic to the image hosting website. The social media is going to play a very important role in this. Yes, Sites like Facebook, Twitter, Linked In, Digg, Stumbleupon, Reddit, and so many are going to participate in your website traffic referring process. These sites are basically used by millions of internet users today, to share their interesting readings that they find in internet. And bloggers are playing the very important role when it comes to interesting contents ๐Ÿ™‚ . We, bloggers are occupying the maximum webspace and database space today in this huge network to show our talents, skill sets and so on. Alright, let me come back to the title.


When you run such free image hosting website with the scripts i suggested, or with your own script you may drive more and more traffic with social media help. Yes, Use your digital camera for this task. If you dont have one then think about buying one with atleast 10 megapixel or more than that enabled cam.

Investment that you do here is really worth that will bring you the returns in little time.

Because giving an high clarity picture can tie the visitors with your website.

First –

There are so many picture hosting websites but still its increasing in numbers and when people find it some thing different in content compare to the other then they do subscribe or bookmark it. Rather simply bookmarking today it automatically spreads the word about the bookmark done by one person to all others connected or to the people following. That positively automates your work of advertising the blog or website.

Each social media site have a separate place to upload and share such albums or images you like to spread in the web. Hence using the same pipeline to pull the plug is the smart way too. Shoot the interesting pics that you find anywhere and ofcourse only if you are good at photography you may try with this method ๐Ÿ˜€ else try collecting various non copyrighted pictures and upload them with your image hosting service. Dont forget to add social media services with your image viewer page. That will work really well incase the user dont have toolbars of digg, stumbleupon installed.

Also, use url shortening service to send the links in web. If you use twitter or facebook then it can be automatically shrinked and dont need to worry abt url shortening service. When people digg or like your images then the site traffic automatically increases by more number of visits.

Second –

Do remember to spread the url of your domain with other blogs and websites. Consider “Its Really Worth Spending 30 Mins To Comment In Blogs Across The Web” to proceed with this second method. I was blogging something every day few months back. Due to my academic busy schedules i was unable to blogging and that returns me PageRank reduce from PR2 to PR Zero. Next my alexa rank went to 9 lakhs + where i actually maintained it in 2 lakhs and things went totally bad. But now, within the week of my blogging war i can see the huge difference in my alexa rank and page rank as well as in backlinks and thats because of commenting in other blogs. I actually started spending 30 mins a day to comment in other blogs so that people will know about my blog and my articles. Atleast somewhere in the crowd my name will be there till i grow ๐Ÿ™‚ .

So consider commenting your site url with other blogs and sites, but make sure you are reading their article or contents before commenting. Else you will be standing in Spammer queue one day for sure ๐Ÿ™‚

Third –

Create Groups in Google or Yahoo to spread your images in much efficient way. This will really work when you post some creative or whatever your choice of category based pictures. People not only join, they will do spreading the pics to their friends by simply clicking on the forward button when they get some interesting or funny sort of images in their email.

There are some great groups in google, yahoo who actually targeted the email users at first (eg: nidokidos) and now they are wide spread with their own websites and blogs. So think about this stage too.

Fourth –

Try designing some greeting cards where people can use it as an ecard to greet their friends. Use stunning images for the keywords you use for the greeting terms. That will never make the visitor to forget your site url even :). Just give a try with your basic photoshop skill and let me know whether it works or not. Dont forget to build a gallery page to categories the pictures you upload and let the users search and navigate them easily.

  7. That’s pretty sick. I was thinking of starting an image hosting site. I have a few hosted machines out there on the internet. my problem is do you have to check the images all the time? what if someone puts up porn or worse?

    1. Hi @defunk, thanks for your comment.

      I would recommend you to consider some moderators to manage the images with the admin console. And it is very important the script you choose to run image hosting websites. It must have some great admin interface and gallery controls. And Banning system ofcourse.

      The script i suggested has many things that allows you to get rid of any illegal images hosted. Try it out as a demo first and see the possibilities.
