On my websites (not including this blog), I try to add a photo or graphic to most of the pages. I understand that visitors stay longer on pages that have a graphic, and it might be better for SEO as well. Although I often use free photos from Flickr (with attribution), I use stock photos as well.
My favorite stock photo website is iStockphoto, and I want to let you know about a one day sale the company is running today only. If you use the special promo code DEAL15, you’ll save 15% on your purchase. I haven’t seen iStockphoto give out special coupon offers like this before, and I want to share it in case it can be useful to you.
I like iStockphoto.com because it’s easy to search, and the company has a huge selection of stock photos from which you can choose. I generally prefer stock photos over the free Flickr photos on static pages on my site and/or when I think a more precise image is necessary. I find it to be a time saver to use iStockphoto instead of Flickr, and when I overlay a photo over a graphic, it’s easier to use a stock photo service.
