And about Hotlinking/bandwidth stealing. While looking at back link in Google, a thing very important to look at (Google page rank, who say what about me), I came about 2 forums entries

Come on, don’t do that, this is plain bandwidth stealing! you reduced my number of visitors! why not just having a link to the ORIGINAL article? My domain name belong to me till 2015, so It wont disappear tomorrow.

What is Bandwidth Stealing ?

There are many forms of bandwidth stealing on the web today. However, the bandwidth theft on here is image/graphic stealing, and is the bandwidth theft that occurs most. That is when you find an image you like and you are:

  1. are too cheap to have server space of your own to use -and/or-
  2. are too lazy to upload the image to your own server -and/or-
  3. are uneducated about the crime you are committing -or all of the above-

Crime? Yes, it is a crime. The person whose site the image is on that you are linking to for the source of the image is paying the server costs, the bandwidth and loosing ad revenues.

I did implement a solution in .htaccess to avoid that, but has seen a dramatic drop in number of visitors, as Google images, live search images are also referencing some files on my server directly. I did switch this off now. I just hope people will get educated enough to understand the problem they create when they simply hotlinks content.
