Have a Portfolio Site? Increase Your Traffic

posted on 13th of july, 2010

Last week I posted an article about the basics of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and some of the things that you can do to increase the ranking of your own site to get it noticed. With lots of well-received feedback and an engaging discussion as it relates to you as photographers, in particular photographers with portfolio sites, we've moved ahead on the series and present you with "SEO 101: Domain Names and URL Structure."

Learn more about what URL structure is, and take a look at why domain names and URLs are so important to the success of your site. We also go in depth and discuss exactly how you can optimize your own domain names and URLs to get even better search engine rankings.
