Does the thought of SEO produce in you a mixture of fear and confusion? It's time to stop putting it on the back burner and get your photography website noticed on the front page of Google with these SEO tips. Corey Potter is somewhat of an SEO Guru. I first heard about him through a fantastic podcast from Andrew Hellmich called "PhotobizXposed." I was impressed with how he explained SEO (Search Engine Optimization) strategies specifically for photographers in an uncomplicated and practical way. To be honest, SEO is one thing that I have struggled with. It's not that it's super difficult, but it is something that you have to be so consistent with, and I am more of a sporadic, think about it every other month kind of girl. That's why I found this video so refreshing, because even thou...

Google's John Mueller said on Reddit that higher page count "means nothing" for ranking higher in Google. He said, in fact, he has seen case studies from the SEO community where reducing the number of pages results in overall better rankings in Google search. But the number of pages on your site is not a specific ranking factor in Google.John wrote:A higher page count means nothing (otherwise everyone would have an infinite calendar on their site, or heck, two.) There's (still) no magical ranking factor that results in a site ranking better if it has more pages indexed. If anything, anecdotally from conference presentations & talking with folks, large sites that reduce the number of indexed pages end up ranking better (usually from cutting out cruft, merging similar content,...

3 free tools to comprehensively test page speed

Google Site Search
Having a fast site is important, since faster sites are rewarded with improved search engine optimization (SEO) and the ability to drive more visits and conversions. More people visiting your site can lead to more sales, signups or traffic in general. That’s a true win-win. Of course, where there’s a positive, there is always a negative. The flip side to fast sites is slow sites, and slow sites tend to suffer from lack of sales, sign-ups and traffic in general. That is definitely not a win-win. Once you get above 3 seconds, many visitors leave before the page loads, many more will bounce, and your conversion rate will plummet. Not good. Fortunately, auditing page speed is relatively painless and, in most cases, can be accomplished with free, easy-to-use too

How important is flat architecture to a website?  What about page depth, which is how many pages deep any page is from the homepage, and how it impacts pages based on that depth?  And what about how a website structure impacts new content?  John Mueller from Google addressed this in a recent Google webmaster office hours with advice from Google’s point of view and what site owners can do to make Googlebot understand content and a website better, in quite a lengthy disccussion.The question was concern about adding additional directory depth being utilized to split a company’s different locations into their own subdirectory, and if the use of additional directories would have a negative impact over using fewer ones, and whether the depth of those product pages could hit a point where the
