Website to upload pictures that was up from 2006 until 2008, when I finally closed it because of the difficulties and risks of trying to moderate the thousands of new pictures that were uploaded every day.

As I did very thoughtful SEO on it, for more than one year the site would appear as the first result in Google for the search “subir fotos” ("upload pictures", in English), which brought many visitors and a good amount of revenue.

There were three versions of the website, all of them quite ugly – the standards for web design were different back then, but also I wasn't very good at design.

The first version of the web didn't include user registration, you would just upload a picture and get a URL. However, the next two were more advanced and allowed users to create accounts in order to manage their pictures and/or show them publicly on the site.
