Optimizing my wedding photography website for search engines has been a passion of mine. So much so that I sometimes dream about it. No jokes. I want to be on the first page of whatever search engine tickles you. Google. Yahoo! Or, the new Cuil. Being number one would be awesome, but I could settle for being on the first page, within the first six options please.
Recently I stumbled upon Washington, DC-based photographer Lara Swanson’s blog. She also works at a firm full time dealing with the same SEO issues that have spurred on my REM cycles. Her article SEO for photographers was a God-send and I am already incorporating a few of the suggestions she makes there.
I went out on a limb and called her because she does offer limited number of free audits of photographer’s sites. If you wanted her to actually implement the changes for you and optimize your site (why wouldn’t you?), she does charge a nominal fee.
Whether you wanted to get a hold of her for a free audit or take your optimization to the next level, email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell her I sent ya.
And, see you on page one too.
