I got my own website but provide some posts on forums as well to expand my reach.
It seems to work against me now since.
Here is the situation:
I create a build log of a scale model on my website, embed the pictures with link (they're on the server of my website), and post in on my site as a "post" with categories and tags etc etc.
To show it to a wider audience I copy my post and publish it on a forum. but now when you search for specific terms my pictures show up every time BUT they link to the forum.
So google ranks the forum higher as my website,
ok I understand because the forum is far more trusted and has way more visitors, but how can I change this?
I get a lot of traffic from google pictures, so imagine that I am missing a lot at the moment if it links to the forum.
I suppose if it links to my post my visitors will increase sufficiently
I think its crazy google does not recognize the pics are from my website by checking the url.
