Domain names have always been a great source of confusion and debate. With the recent launch of new generic top-level domains (also known as gTLD’s), I thought it might be worth explaining a little about them. This is not in any way a definitive guide but hopefully, will answer some of the questions we receive on this topic.
The browser title appears at the very top of the browser window. It is the most important words for indexing your website page by the search engines, even though it is not displayed on the page. The search engines see this sentence and display it as the title link in the search results page (the bit that links to your site) just above the meta description.
It’s sort of fitting that as we launch WordPress blogs within theimagefile system that we write a blog post about it. Over the next few posts we going to discuss:
- What makes a good blog for a photographer
- How to maximise the use of a blog for search engine optimisation
- How to maximise the use of a blog to interact with your site visitors and prospect customers
- How a blog can attract new visitors with the potential of converting some of them into paying clients who appreciate your experience, expertise and professionalism within the imaging industry.
It’s a shame that just last week we had two separate cases regarding rescuing wedding images…
Whilst talking to one bride, she regretfully acknowledged that the photographs were the only keepsake that she will have to enjoy in years to come. Yes, she had heard that the cake is eaten, the band fall silent, the flowers droop and the dress becomes… tighter…however, she still ignored the professional photographer’s attempts to prevent the pending calamity and in an attempt to save money booked Uncle Keith, a keen amateur, to replace the professional photographer.
All images were captured as small jpegs.
The bride and groom do now at least have a somewhat downsized wedding album, but with the costs for necessary digital work, scanning, printing and manipulation, the (not so happy) couple have only made a saving of just over eighty-six pounds compared to what they would have paid for the stress-free services of the originally booked professional.
It’s sad that so many major once-in-a-lifetime events are going to be lost for future generations because of similar circumstances.
Having a camera does not make a photographer…
P.S. Wedding photography page sets are now available for download!
