SEO Stock Image Wall of Shame
First of all, let me be clear – we are definitely guilty of using cheesy stock images. We would like to announce that we are “in recovery” for terribly SEO stock images, and have vowed to stop using them at all costs. One day at a time, together, we can stop using these images.
First off, a statistic – the first image featured on our list was used 3,545 times! And that was just tinyeye.com, which isn’t that great at picking up on modified versions of the image. That is a sad sad figure. Friends and colleagues: we must stop using these images.
Did we miss anything? I’m sure there are more, and there are a lot of variations of these, but these are the basics. I would like to note that all of these images were designed very well, and the original designer should be very proud of themselves, its just the fact that they have been used over and over and over again without any regard for creativity.
