It is amazing how gullable people are in a sense. A few years ago I put a comment on a photo which simply said "Let me know if you like this photo by viewing the large version". I didn't do it as a boost to my hits, I did it to see if people really would simply open the image becasue the comment told them to and, although I have long removed the comment you can see it worked:-
View Large View Medium

(Nearly 7,000 hits!)
Although I did get a large number of emails from people asking me where the large version was or can I show them the large version!
I am not a fan of comments like look at that and what is that etc but I am sure everyone has the odd image which carries a comment along the lines of look at such and such.
Not sure this idea really warranted a new thread, but there we go!
As for the usage of the word "like" that annoys me much more than any hit-sgrabbing comment ever could!
