    Throw your website up as a watermark on the images.

    Statistically people will do anyhing. Thats why everyone in IM should know basic statistics and probability math. If watermark URL comes as natural continuity of the story and user expects same level of cool stuff, effort to type in the URL might happen. Probability of user typing url is much lower for mobile devices.
    So smart watermark would imply that continuity, in this case "interesting facts" "cool facts" "science trivia" EMDs.

    Watermark urls must imply expected content. I mean BLACKCOCKS,COM doesn't suit for example poetic quote, or in this case nobel prize story.

    It will be reported and detect by imgur. Image will be deleted and account banned. When a post is viral and you try to edit, a pop-up warning appears about that.

    Then you don't do it lol! If your niche is fashion you're not going to do that. You wouldn't do it on Facebook or anywhere else, why do you think you need to do that on there? Have you actually been on there?

    Do you use other accounts to boost your posts?

    I'm thinking to make some blog with topic 'real facts about people' ... In this way I can make an image with some important person and text with facts about that person, in this way I think 1-5% will visit the watermark.
