This thread has evolved a bit! Looks like the question has become:

100,000 by September?

There's certainly no rush. Quality over quantity!

See attached pole.

This is what my site (and everyone else's site) aggregates and random. 37 sites and 32,000 images are randomly accounted for by my site, so there are probably more out there.

Could we initiate a challenge? 64,000 images in 2 weeks. 14 days.

It took 3 months to get in the vicinity of 32,000 images while in development. Now that things are becoming stable could we double it in 2 weeks?


...is hosting the party :D



But things are still going awesome. Join the fun.

LOL

Bamboozled again. Never underestimate that innocent looking little rogue strawberry.

Ok, cut that in half.

Contest is still on. Rogue strawberry does not count in results. This just got challenging.

I updated the numbers.

Half is too low, there is about 32000 images now. Strawberry has only 23700, because many sites still run 2.4.1 version, with 24 images in csv.

http://symbiostock.info 23711 - the same images added again to the basket?

BTW "Scan network and update directory" looks to slow, blank page 90% of the time

That should definitely be a consideration for everyone. Which makes it that more challenging. The network thrives in search due to everyone's keeping that regimen.

Leo you need sleep. She means the poll is very two sided, like yes or no. There is no moderate answer  ;)

I mean, it does not finish. probably 30 seconds limit which is to slow, and there are only few sites on the list

Yes, now my search engine pretends Symbiostock site, and everyone can add it to network list (2.4.3 version required) . Side effect: is has number of indexed images in symbiocard and it sums with other results.

Network scanning is often very slow to me too. It is because (in my case) curl on my server sometimes has problems with DNS, especially with bluehost sites :)
It happens from time to time, and fetching one symbiocard takes 20-30s. So I think that network scanner should work somehow different. Maybe like my search engine: every hour takes only one site and adds new found friends to list.

Oh ok. I'll add something in the middle for shady sue to vote on.

Edit - nevermind. It messes up the pole and makes it look confusing.

Edit - Your right! I do need sleep. Anyway, have fun. Back to life again for a few days.

The first 100 images I uploaded dont have SEO, they have been indexed yet, the one where I did SEO with the Yoast, do already show up. So I need to delete those images and redo them, and then add the other 600 new images. Oemph.

I would join the fun if I could understand how the whole thing works  :D Even though there are so many posts about this, everything is so confusing. Do you have a tutorial for extreme noobs?
