Photoshelter … An SEO Journey

Well I signed up to photoshelter a few months back and threw myself into collecting and following as much advice as possible.  Here I am going to share my knowledge and tell you all what I have done to SEO optimize my photoshelter account.

First things first! Have a look at the SEO grader in your account.  You will find it under the “My Website” heading in the photographer area.  Answer the five questions and then get your grade.  If you then scroll down it will tell you the good things you have done, the things that you could do better and also what needs to be fixed.  The good news is it has links to where you can sort any problems and descriptions for how to do it.

The biggest struggle for me was thinking of Keywords to add to my site.  I used Google’s Adwords Keywording Tool.

Google Adwords Keyword Tool

It makes keywording incredibly easy and also allows you to download the words you collect into .txt documents which I keep filed on my computer in catagories so I can apply them to any new galleries I make.

This process takes a while but with not much effort you can get your grade up to ’96’ like me!

From now on its a waiting game for your results to appear in the likes of Google, Bing and Yahoo.

To help these search engines place your site you will need to work on links to your site and your connections.  The stronger they are the better.
