    I was wondering if there was a way you guys have found to get some value behind hotlinked images in particular.

    My idea was using a combination of .htaccess and PHP (with GD on the fly) to generate an image with the link to the page its on (rather than show the image itself). I know I can use a generic/static image but that isn't effective for this objective.

    Of course I would need to store these images but that might be worth the traffic boost..

    Do you think its feasible?
    Any other methods/ideas? preferably working ones as I'd like to benefit while there are lots of hotlinks out..
