Are you struggling to get your website to show up on the first page of search engine results? I know – it’s scary. But congratulations on taking the first step! It’s time to give your SEO strategy a boost. In this blog post, we’ll cover some simple steps you can take to improve your website’s search engine optimization and get more clients to find you online.
It’s time to stop guessing, kick your strategy into gear, and start ranking on your new BFF – GOOGLE.
When people are searching for a wedding photographer, they often use specific keywords like “wedding photography” or “wedding photographer in [your city].” By including these keywords in your website content, you can increase your chances of showing up in search results. But don’t overdo it! Keyword stuffing can actually harm your SEO efforts.
Focus on using relevant keywords in a natural way throughout your website. You should not, ever ever, be putting multiple keywords throughout one page. Keywords don’t work like hashtags. If you keyword stuff, you’ll confuse google, and your site likely won’t rank anywhere.
Here are some tips on how to find the right keywords for your business:
Once you have a list of potential keywords, be sure to use them in a natural way throughout your website content, including your page titles, meta descriptions, and content. Remember that the goal is not to stuff your website with keywords, but to use them in a way that helps search engines understand the content and relevance of your website.

As a wedding photographer, you likely have lots of beautiful images on your website. But did you know that you can optimize those images for search engines? When you upload an image, be sure to include a descriptive filename and alt tag. This will help search engines understand what the image is about and improve your chances of showing up in image search results.
Make sure it coincides with your pages keywords. Otherwise, that is just another confusing keyword stuff for Google!
If you’re a local wedding photographer, it’s important to get listed in local directories like Yelp or Google My Business. These directories can help you show up in local search results and attract clients in your area. Be sure to include your business name, address, phone number, and website URL in your listings.
You’ll want to make sure to do this ESPECIALLY if you specialize in weddings in your area! Make sure Google understands that you’re serving couples there.
Backlinks, or links from other websites to your website, can improve your SEO by indicating to search engines that your website is valuable and relevant. To build backlinks, consider reaching out to wedding venues, wedding planners, and other wedding vendors in your area and asking if they would be willing to link to your website.
When you send out your galleries to vendors from weddings or projects, make sure you ask them to link you and you will link them as well! We love a win-win. Slowly but surely, you’ll rank up a whoooooole bunch of backlinks. You can see examples of that for our photography business here, here, here, and here.
Finally, it’s important to keep your website up-to-date with fresh content. Regularly adding new blog posts or updating your portfolio can signal to search engines that your website is active and relevant.
Plus, it can help attract potential clients who are searching for the latest wedding photography trends and ideas. Try updating your work with new blog posts, updated portfolio images, or new services you’re adding.
By following these tips, you can improve your website’s SEO and attract more clients to your wedding photography business. Remember, SEO is an ongoing process, so be patient and keep working at it.
