    Hotlinking creates legitimate issues for webmasters. It seems like the onus should be on Google to create a detection mechanism that avoids penalizing this type of behavior instead of forcing it upon the webmasters. Hopefully this only ends up being a corner case.

    Another bomb of Manual Action by Google . It is news when said Hummingbird is a revolution of search engine . As a Optimizer while we were about to give up bad seo, we were called for doing better more.

    Seems legit, if your site is doing that it’s probably faulty or spammy as hell.

    No doubt this is interesting. Only Google can think like
    this way. I support Google for such manual penalty. But in case when i update a
    pic in my site and the page or image not cached in few days and Google still
    has the cached copy?

    In WordPress there is an option to set a featured image. I don’t know whether this image can show up in search results but appears if you share the article over social networks. Does anyone know if this could cause any potential harm?

    I use anti-hotlinking for my images but allow Google (and other respected sites) to hotlink away.

    Just a RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !google. [NC] before he image rewrite rule and everybody’s happy.

    So in other words, sites that lost a ton of traffic when Google changed image search and then put in a ‘click to view full resolution’ watermark to regain that traffic are effed again. Awesome Google…
