I have been a photographer for a while, but a few weeks ago I started this blog. I had another before "Jason Brown Photography" But I just wanted a place to upload a select few of my pictures as I finished them and say a few comments about them on a website of my own. I wanted traffic too and to get it I realized that I needed to build backlinks to my site. Links are what drives the forces of search engines, when somebody tweets out my website, or shares it on Linkedin or Facebook It shows up as a link from wherever it is. I also have a competitive market as a wedding photographer and need to rank high so as far as backlinks and links go I need to get a lot of them. That is where this article and SEO comes in.
Backlinks DoFollow Photography Blog Google SEO
So, I got all of my SEO done on the pages of my photography blog. Right now my project is to optimize my blog for more back-links.
I quickly found that my challenge is to get quality backlinks from other websites pointing at mine in order to increase my authority with Google.com in the eternal quest to reach page one of the SERP. (Search Engine Results Page) Google still uses quality backlinks as vote to decide the authority of new websites.
In order to get rank higher by Google, you NEED more backlinks and nobody can argue this point. I learned that a sure fire way to do this is make the comments on my blog (DO FOLLOW) “dofollow” What that means, is that when somebody comments on a post they will get a backlink to their blog or website that Google will follow that link, and they get a little boost in their SERP. Because I do this online, my blog will be given backlinks by commentors.
That’s just what the blogging community needs to do for each other so use it. By default, WordPress comments are, “Nofollow” then people who comment get no google juice back to their sites. If you change just this one item you can increase your traffic and get more quality backlinks too. Yahoo and Bing most likely work in similar ways. There is another post that goes more in detail about the other methods that help to rank high here in the next three links.
Today this website was indexed by Google It landed in the twentieth spot out of 883,000 pages or on the bottom of page two. I am very satisfied with the keyword selection I chose and will be focusing on page rank now. That is done by building back-links pointing back to San Antonio Wedding Photography from high page rank sites.
Sometime in the last few days Google gave this post a pagerank of two my other blog Jason Brown Photography now has a page rank of three so feel free to follow the link and make a comment. All of my sites are Do-Follow and will transfer link juice back to your website helping you rank higher in searches. If you search my keywords San Antonio Wedding Photographer I rank on the first page at the bottom, or second page at the top. That is with just 4 months since the site went live.
