How NOT to Market on Flickr

Looks like someone didn’t read my How to Market on Flickr guide. Tsk-tsk.

And how stupid do you have to be to link to all your spammy profiles at every other social site? Obviously a rookie spammer.

Update, Sunday afternoon: I submitted that profile via Flickr’s “report abuse” form, and just about 16 hours later, the account has been killed. Nice.

    I haven’t found too much spam, but I do find WAY too much p0rn for a site like that… How can people not report the profile?

    Yes, the spam on Flickr reaches satirical levels at times. I wrote a post a few weeks ago about how to make your spam on Flickr look as non-spam-like as possible:

    Not only on flickr, but on youtube you can find these spammy guys also. Usually it ain’t about viagra but webcam sites. Oh well.
