Question: I am a photographer in New York City (NYC). What are some SEO tips for photographers like me? Should I blog, or just post images to Google images, and if so, how do I get good search engine optimization for photographers?
Answer: Images are very useful for search engine optimization! And, as a photographer, you have incredible opportunities to leverage images and photos for SEO! First and foremost, my biggest SEO Tip for a photography website would be to use the ALT attribute and place SEO-friendly keywords ‘behind’ the images. Google pays a lot of attention to the ALT attribute behind images, so that is one of the biggest SEO tips for photograph websites. Second, use the XML sitemap feature and webmaster tools to implement an image sitemap. That isn’t as important as the ALT attribute, but still worth it.
