    Stock Photos on Blog pages, etc.
    Was reviewing a couple of site pages today and had a thought, and a question:

    Do you think that stock photos (shutterstock, etc) hurt a site's ranking because of "duplicate content" on the web? And... any articles or hard facts on the issue?

    Heh - almost two years - is a long time in the Goog SEO world.

    But - you can always put the stock images you buy into a photo editor and "manipulated" them just enough so they won't match the original in an image search.
