Internet and your photographs

Firstly, let me apologise for posting this initially in Canon 1D/5D forum.

Would you know who took the last photograph you looked at in this forum?
When and where was this photograph taken?
What is its copyright status?
Would you know what it contains?

The answer is often yes, because you can see it. However, when you look for an image on the Internet you relay on search engines such as Google or Bing which are BLIND and can only absorb textual content. Your greatest photograph or painting may never be found because of this shortcoming.

So, today I have decided to write something relating to the Internet and media. If you are a photographer, painter, composer or any other creative person you will know how difficult it is to describe your work on the Internet in a way for the search engines such as Google and Bing to index our work in a meaningful and relevant way.
