Getting the most from your featured photographer listing

Getting the most from your featured photographer listing

Sunday, September 23rd, 2012

Just thought I would share a few ways of making your photographers listing look its best on UK Wedding Photographers.

The very first thing you should do is upload an image for the featured photographer slider on the homepage that is 600pixels wide by 245pixels high. Your image should fill the whole space but don’t put anything that is visually important to the image in the right hand third of the frame. This portion of the picture is covered over with your listing title and the start of your description.

Use tags, lots of tags but make sure that any text you type as a tag also appears in the text of your listings. Use place names and wedding photographer related keywords.

Having a featured listing means that you can use html in your listing and this is a big advantage to you. Not only can you make your listings look better but you can include links back to your website. For example is I was targeting the word wedding photographer then I would link it to my website. All you need to do is highlight the text you want to link and click on the chain “link” button in dashboard.

One way text links from relevant websites are very powerful tools for search engine optimisation, make sure you use them.

You can also add wedding photography images hosted on other websites to your listing description. Just click on the picture icon in the listing editor and entering the image url.  To copy and image from Facebook just right click on it and click “copy url” then paste it in the url box.
