There are so many talented photographers that I'm sure a lot of you have experienced that your photos might pop up "everywhere".
(Bear in mind that if one search Google without using a trick like using a different browser or in incognito-mode your work will show up more for you than for others due to it filters results based upon your previous behaviour. Duckduckgo.com isn't suppose to track what you search so it is suppose to be more neutral than the other search engines...)
On Flickr it seems to me from when I look at what people search for the results staggers me, as for instance I've visited Riga 4 times but if a search is done on "Riga, Portrait" it would seem like I live there... Naturally people from Latvia would tag their photos often in Latvian and/or Russian, but still it baffles me and makes me wonder if Flickr does the same..?
If one have a very unique subject for photography or a place (like a friend of mine who went to North Korea in late 1980's got a lot of attention on a few of his photos which he posted online a few years ago when he finally got a scanner... (Langly, VA amongst others :-) ) I can imagine it would be easy to "own" that particular search, but if one would search "Fashion", "car" or "Paris" few could hope to "own" such a search :-)
I got the d7100 the same week it went on sale and took a trip to Berlin and a lot of people searched for that camera the following weeks that would also bring in a lot of traffic I would imagine..
Anyone else given this any thoughts / experience?
