New Showcase Section on Flickr

Remember Flickr? Don’t forget about them

They recently came out with new About Page to share your work. It still has the features at the bottom to sort by most likes, comments and views. It also adds an edtitable Showcase Section of up to 25 photos.

For users, the Showcase Section all slick-like as you can create and change themes separate from your standard Flickr Albums and Collections. These sections could be:

  • Outdoor photos to help engage summertime customers to give you a visit
  • You and your staff volunteering for a local cause to show how involved you are in the community
  • Staff photos while working to show off your employee dedication

For search reasons, you’re still able to link to your desired pages per photo. They’re no-followed and need to be hard coded. For a couple reasons, I usually don’t link to pages within my main site but will here for demonstration purposes.

Just like other social portals, Google loves them. Add each, individual photo with a title, description, geo and add within a group and it will have a better chance of showing up for searches.

This is just one of almost limitless ways to get your relevant content out there for the right users, and to help encourage them to give you an in-person visit.
