Over on geobloggers, a chart depicting the rise in the use of the “geo:lat” and “geo:long” tag for Flickr photos.
Most of that chart shows the growth before Google Earth was released. I expect that line to really head skyward now that you can automatically see Flickr photos inside GE.

The geobloggers blog is a fount of hacks and ideas regarding Google Earth (GE) and the geographical positioning tags that have been developed for Flickr photos and del.icio.us links.
For example, del.icio.us links that have had geotags added can be made to show up automatically in GE if you are in the neighborhood. What does that mean?
So if you’ve been to a nice cafe and want to geotag their homepage, go for it…
In other words, you don’t need to wait for websites to locate themselves. You can take the initiative yourself.
