We all know that there is no end to content theft.
People not only steal your text, but they also take your images causing you to lose out on your traffic.
How about using those images to brand your blog and also drive back even more traffic?
You can do this by watermarking.
Though there is no easy or very effective way to add a watermark to previously uploaded images on WordPress, there is a plugin to help you to add a watermark to images which you upload from now on.
Watermark Reloaded is one of those plugins which is on my list of must-have WordPress plugins.
This plugin’s settings are configurable and you can add a watermark wherever you want.
As you can see, the Watermark Reloaded plugin gives you an ample amount of options to configure your watermark according to the design and look of your blog.
Moreover, by adding a watermark, you help in the overall branding of your blog. When a user copies your post, your image watermark will be visible which will help you to get direct traffic.
For more effective uses, try to use the complete name of your domain instead of using any short form.
For example, “ShoutMeLoud.com” is more effective than using only “ShoutMeLoud”.
This plugin is just for WordPress, but if you use any other blogging platform, I would suggest read my post on how to add watermarks onto images using Windows Live Writer.
