    The real question is: How does content theft affect search engine and keyword ranking?
    One of my images used to rank pretty high and even number one or two on google image search. I'm not sure when this site popped up and starting stealing images and offering it as their own, but I've read both sides, saying hotlink protection can or cannot affect SEO ranking. Any thoughts?
