Flickr has taken the #1 spot in our Photography category and it seems to be down to good SEO (search engine optimisation) for soft porn searches. I’ll admit it was a bit of a surprise last week when I looked at our Photography category and noticed that Flickr had moved into the #1 spot. The last time I’d looked at this was in the Spring, when Flickr ranked behind Photobucket and Community Webshots.
In the week to 17th June 2006, Flickr became the #1 website based on share of UK visits in the Hitwise – Photography category. In the past three months, whilst Flickr’s market share of UK visits has increased 39%, Photobucket’s has decreased 17% and Community Webshot’s has remained flat.
PS the same i may say about News Alloy – number of porn is overhelming!
