A DIY Guide To SEO For Photographers

SEO (search engine optimization) is what helps drive organic traffic / customers to your website. Optimizing your site is essential for small businesses like photographers! SEO can seem a bit daunting, especially when you get dozens of emails every month saying your website is a SEO mess! These agencies make SEO seem scary and complicated! These “experts” use this scare tactic to get you into a monthly SEO management contract. If you can afford it, great! But, if you don’t have a big marketing budget like most small businesses, we’re here to help!

We’ve put together an online DIY SEO workshop for photographers! The workshop is broken down into steps so you can work on optimizing your website throughout the year! Below you will find topics that will cover basic SEO information and strategies. Click the SEO Topic you wish to work on, read the information, complete the tasks, find a new SEO topic to work on. It is that easy! Work at your own pace and if you get stuck shoot us an email!


Welcome to our DIY SEO guide for photographers! If you find the guide useful, a small tip is much appreciated to help us cover expenses, but feel free to use the guide for FREE!
