Have been on Flickr for weeks, you may notice a magic part on flickr, that is Flickr Explore. But why your photos cannot be listed there?
Every day, Flickr uses an algorithm to choose the best 500 photos, which is decided on many factors, such as the views, the comments, and how many favorite the photo gets.
So just like what Flickr says, "There are lots of things that make a photo interesting or not in the Flickr." But of course, with some tips, it will make your photos easier to get into Flickr Explore page.
Tags are everything to Flickr users. Add some relevant tags to the photo, that is to say, use most corrective words to describe the photos. And by the way, the Popular Tag will help you to decide what is hot in Flickr in the week or in the last month.
Although you have many photos, yet just remember select your best photos. To promote them to Flickr's best 500, you are advised to keep that as the lasts photos. That is, when visitors come to your photo stream, they should view that in the first page. How do you decide which one is your best photo? Go to Your photos and sort based on "Interesting" - select the first photo on that list!
Remove your photo from Groups
According to the recent changes in Flickr algorithm, if your photos in many groups, it will devalue the interestingness. At most, you may keep in 5 groups, after getting enough visibility for 2 or 3 days, you may remove from them and repost it in another set of five groups. It is a trade-off between "More visibility (in many groups)" and "Making it to the Explore page". Decide what you want.
Invite Experts to give you comment
Expert comments are really important, so if it is possible, you may invite expert photographers to comment on your photo. Go to Explore page. Select a photo which is similar to yours (If your photo is flower, select a flower photo which has made it to the Top 10). This is to ensure to invite the expert commentors to view your photo.

Of course, this is most important factor to make your photos. Well, you can bring experts to view your photo. What if it doesn't live upto their expectations? So, take good pictures. Always make it a habit to visit Explore page and learn good tricks.
