Is it considered hotlinking when instead of posting images, you just post the link to the site. Like for example, a shirt at Target, if instead of me just putting the image, I put the link to the page so that when someone clicks on it, they can see the whole page about it (price, size, description, etc) ?
I read the hot-linking guide but didn't see anything about it...
EDIT: Oh, I found this:
"The difference between hotlinking & linking to a web site:
When people link directly to a media file (gif, jpg, png, mov etc.), the webmaster of the original site has to pay the fees. When someone links to a page on that same website, the webmaster still pays fees but the content is shown in the form the designer (and copyright holder) wished, and they may be able to cover costs by displaying advertising on the page.
Super simply put... Hot Linking to media files = bad... Linking to pages = good ;-) "
So I guess that's okay then.
