SEO for Photographers | Basic Tips for Photographers

SEO for photographers...From last 2 years I m in photography and for me photography is more than hobby it’s my passion.Most of my friends and relatives told me to display your work on internet, so it will be easy to show your work to world.

Finally they convince me to start the photo blog and in Last year April i started this blog www.vkclicks.com. I started VKClicks on Word press with self-hosting plan to show my work to the entire world.

Initially the response was good I was also regularly upload my photos. However from past few months i observed my visitors on my photo blog are more than limited. I am not getting enough traffic as i was thought in initial days.

I was so confuse why my website is not getting enough visitors ? Is it my work is not up to the mark ? Or my website design is not good ? had lot of questions in my mind, but deep inside me I know something is wrong but I don't know what.

Searched on internet took recommendation from my web designer friends and then I come to know that SEO of my website is not good. which causes the less number of hits on my photo blog. After learning from them I found out SEO for photographers also plays an important role other than just uploading good photographs.

But what is SEO for Photographers ?
