Dear Marylyn,

Thank you so much for your detailed post. I have only just started with instagram after all these years.
Happy Sunday!
Best wishes,
Sarah

Hi Marylyn!

I do use embedded photos but... My main concern with using Wikipedia and other embedded photos is the number of outgoing links when crediting the authors.. Do you make them nofollow?

I normally do this with all my links but it does take extra time.

Can you explain why this may be a problem :?:

Cheers,

I may be out of date on this, but outgoing links that are dofollow steal juice from your site. Also, the links are taking a few visitors away from your page.

Am I way off on this? :)

David you aren't way off; but what does your site get in return? Only you can decide if it is worth doing to get that image.

Don't forget ... You can just set the attribution links as nofollow to reduce PR loss and risk of Penguin issues.
