Off-site search engine optimisation isn’t just about links. There’s more to it than that. As online business owners, we tend to focus our efforts solely on on-site SEO, but we shouldn’t stop there. To a large extent, the things that now matter most to Google happen away from your website. 

Search engine optimisation can seem a daunting prospect, especially when you’re not sure where to start or the best way to approach the search engines. However, if you can develop a basic understanding of off-site optimisation then you’ll already be on the road to off-site SEO success.

Supersize Your Client Area Photos!

Double the size of your client area photos

You can now double the size of the photos shown on the client area page.

The client area is the page that shows one gallery image per client image collection.  The visitor clicks the photo to access, either requiring a password or not, the complete collection of images and video you have made available to your client to proof, purchase or download.

How to double the size on your page

The images shown on the client area page can now be displayed at twice the size. Try it out (you can always change it back if you want)  by going to edit the client area page (My Websites > Pages > Edit Web Pages, then click to edit your client area page). There select the option: “List galleries as a table of sample images, double standard size (280px max)” and save your changes.

So You Want To Be A Nursery Photographer…

So you want to be a nursery photographer...

Many people think that a nursery school photographer and a school photographer are the same thing. But the workflows are very different. As a nursery school (also known as a toddler group) photographer you will be photographing children under the age of five in their school environment. Unlike primary and secondary schools, toddler groups tend to cater to a small number of children and are privately owned. Also, a nursery school photo shoot tends to be organised on a first-come-first-served basis rather than as regimented production line. This is typically because children attend the toddler group either in the morning or afternoon.
