If you’re building an authority website with high quality content, then you’re probably going to want some high quality photos and images as well.
And while you could just swipe and download some images that you find off another site or Google’s image search, it’s best to just invest a few dollars in some really high quality stock images that are going to compliment your site content.
Don’t get me wrong, I used to be all about cheap and free methods, but back then stock photography was a bit more than it is now, and again, for just a dollar or a few dollars, it’s a small price to pay to have a much higher quality looking site…and also you won’t have to worry or fear about using “stolen” images.
Now, there are tons and tons of stock photo sites, and some are certainly better and have a bigger selection than others, but one of the absolute biggest, best and highest quality stock photo sites is iStockPhoto.
They’ve been around for years and years, and if you’re looking for high quality images and photographs to use for any sort of website or creative project, I would start there first.
